Being honest, neither. I started in this hobby, so long ago, that I didn't know there were magazines & shows dedicated to models & modelling. I've alway's built to please myself. I'm inspired by other builders & friends in this hobby. I've never sought media recognition, nor any awards. This for me, would take the fun out of the hobby. Beside's this, no-one would be able to critique my builds worse than me.
I agree with everything Dan said here.
I would never submit a model to a contest or magazine, but I do enjoy looking at the models of those who do.
