How is light a luxury when building models?

And isn't building models itself a luxury? I mean, we don't need to build models to survive.

Model building is alot more fun when you can "really" see what you're doing. Not to mention being able to fix things (now that you can see) before its too late.

Another step towards building better models. :)
