    talk about a great video, that was excellent. keep going with the scratch build videos I could watch that all day
    one of these times when you have a smaller part do you think you could do a small piece or project part start to finish
    kind of like Hispanic time lapse . I am afraid you have me hooked. I am probably going to be dreaming about scratch building tonight.

    Great work Mike, I actually learned a lot and may build my own plane some day, not scratch built, but a kit as I do not posses that kind of skill.

    Thanks for all the kind words guys I really appreciate it a lot. In the future should I make the video's a bit shorter in length or was this enough?

    I cant wait .
    as for the length of your videos.
    In my opinion I seems that you will attract a wide variety of viewers some like my self that never think about the length only if it interests me and those who are busy or just like a bit shorter video so I think first that you need to see that the video is complete that you are happy THEN consider the length for the different preferences of your viewers to your advantage for the
    "a little something for everyone effect" and this will leave you open for everything from the short update to the full length build. again in my opinion the reality is the more video footage the better as the building and editing of your video shows are
    two different layers and elements of channel videos . some times it will be easier to go to your videos library of for content.
    than to make it on the fly when you do your shorter or more personal or all the way live videos that you will also do,, but it is easier to edit from a library of a lot of footage to make a short video than it is to make a full length build on the fly or
    all the way live.
    hopefully these things will make it easier for YOU to make your videos.
