Hi,
It was very well presented but at 13 minutes it was far to long.
Cheers

Maybe a tad long, but very useful - great stuff!
Interesting to see how someone else does it - I tend to almost fill the neck hole with glue (to help hide the join) rather than a small dab on the end of the neck.
Here's a tip - heat shrink on the end of the pliers - protects the head without getting it lost in a rag :D

It all depends on how well i manage to drill, and clean up, sometimes a litle glue is required, and sometimes I have to mix up a bit of putty, to fill in any gaps.
Heatshrink on the pliers, thats a neat trick, will try that one out. :)

This vid is a bit longer, has a bit of an intro to the theme at the start, if I make any others they will be subject related only, and I'll do a tighter edit on them.
I tried to cover all the bases, and stuck to tools that most people would have access to, normally I use my Dremel to drill, and clean up, but not all gamers have one.

Congratulations, that is a solid video; well presented from start to finish and with no ambiguity. For a first effort it's very, very good. You definitely should continue.

I disagree that it's too long.

Find a balance between presentation and a focus on the subject you are presenting. Your 'video craft' will improve over time.

Television is rather a frightening business. But I get all the relaxation I want from my collection of model soldiers. P. Cushing

Thanks for the tutorial. And I don't think that 13:08 was too long for a first video. Keep up the good work!
