Thats interesting. How does he or anyone else make money from YouTube videos? No adverts that I can see and no donation requests.
Google/YouTube will basically pay Sam x amount per view, as he has got monetisation switched on. I believe He'll get something for the number of subscribers he has also.

Google/YouTube recoup this payment by charging advertisers to display adverts.

As a side note, I don't think he is getting directly paid by hornby or others as he would have to mention this on his videos. He has been given things in the past and he makes it very clear when this happens.

Correct Stese, 100,000 subs mark which he has passed will increase his payment.

He has addressed that more than once in his videos and accepts it is not 'proper' practice.

I used to be a regular viewer of his, but now I am a lot more selective. If he is reviewing something I might be interested in I will give it a look.

Someone I have discovered recently that I really enjoy is Mojave Model Railroad, refreshingly different!
