I've been building model kits since I was a kid and just recently started shooting and editing video of the whole process. I started putting content on YouTube, where I am also @brithebuilder, to share a build I was doing for a friend and I've found that I really enjoy putting my work out there for people to see.

Feel free to check out my work: https://linktr.ee/brithebuilder
