Sounds like you'll be getting 2 MX-5s.

No, she wants an RV...  Like a Mitubishi Pajero...

For me it is a piece from each of 3 points put in the beginning.

But I would also add No.4:
To be able to watch myself and to show the others the final result of my modeling. I truly find a lot of fun watching, comparing sizes, shapes and colours of those amazing flying machines.

And one PS:
Rigging is relaxing  ;D ;D ;D

Good points so far!

I have also another reasons:

- the learning process. To learn something new keeps you younger and your brain active ;)
And I have to learn a lot! About the history of the early aircraft, about the engineering solutions, how an airbrush works, how to thin paints correctly, how to create wooden air screws, how to rig a British aircraft with RAF wires ....
This learning is directly connected to "the next model will be better!".

- the community. Not only here but also other platforms and live meetings and exhibitions.
 (Morons don't build models. Exceptions prove the rule, and, one sometimes makes a fool of oneself. But you know what I mean.)

Cheers,
Frank
Wikipedia says: A model is a simplified representation of reality.
So I create downscaled originals.
