As I see – Art Craft & Modelling should be creative and fun after all –
So this is where I take on the challenge to be slightly different to what manufactures or other modellers make…
cheekytek – is something cheeky with a little bit of ‘tech’ all in one.
By just taking unique ideas or looking at our everyday surroundings we take on the challenge to build something – whether it be copied from someone or an original idea that we elaborate on to fit in to our mini world of modelling.
For myself to create something was once out of my comfort zone as I really had no confidence or the ability to build anything with added details.
After studying many modellers, I finally saw what inspired them to build their projects with such details – and from what I’ve learned, it was the challenge to make something better and to incorporate added realism to tell a story of a captured memory.
This inspiration has given me the ability to just have a go – after all – if I didn’t try and fail, how would I ever learn….
And this is where I sat – I was hungry for craft and model making.
I feel in my world that I love to share my creativity with others so this is where my videos promote where I can to self building based on a model railways and craft as a whole but all the techniques that I use and can be adopted to suit any hobby.
For more inspirational ideas head over to cheekytek on YouTube where you can dive straight in and see what I do. 
Prepare to be inspired.

It’s very exciting times for the layout and a personal journey for myself having being selected to show a small diorama of my creation of which is every modellers dream. A Class08 ticks over at the depot on Garry Payne’s ‘OO’ gauge layout Old Oak Bridge. The model takes inspiration from Old Oak Common and Acton depots through the BR era to 2001.
