Back in 2013 I was looking for a hobby to satisfy my need to be artistic and creative, as a kid I used to build all sorts of models (mostly aircraft) but once I left school and entered the hunt for work all that got left behind.
It took over 10 years but once I found myself in a stable job and the family was settled I had plenty of spare time to fill… that’s when trains caught my attention. There’s something oddly satisfying about building a miniature scene and having an actual moving model drive through the scene.
Believe it or not the whole motivation for filming and uploading videos to YouTube was not to create a brand and a following but rather to create an archive of videos on different methods and techniques I used to create specific scenes. Not long after getting into the scenery creation side of model making I’d build this amazing scene using a range of different techniques and when I’d come back a few weeks later to try and replicate what I’d done I would completely forget what I did and how I did it! So now I could step back and clearly see how I achieved a particular result by watching my past videos.
Before I knew it I was seeing consistent growth on the channel and people were liking what was being uploaded, that’s when I decided to step up the game and start putting a lot more effort into the production and started using better editing programs and watching video editing tutorials on YouTube.
Now that brings me to where we are today, I never imagined the channel would attract such a following but one thing hasn’t changed… I still upload videos to remind myself how I achieve a particular method or technique!
So thank you for being here and supporting the channel.
