    Wow! A model car troll. Rare but not unheard-of.
    OK I'll play:
    One could argue that any hobby is a waste of time, resources and space. Hobbies take productive work-time away from the economy and often produce nothing of economic value. Most times, the resultant products of "hobby" are of value only to the person producing them. I can see why some folks would be upset by the selfish act of "hobby".  
    Just the unmitigated arrogance that would cause a person to throw away time and resources to create something that only he or she can enjoy is appalling. There should be a governing agency in charge of the proper application and use of hobby resources. We need Hobby Police!
    A catalog of acceptable hobby projects would be compiled and made available to hobby participants. Any hobby projects not listed in this catalog would be submitted as hobby proposals to the Hobby Police Board for review and prior approval. This would greatly reduce the emotional duress inflicted upon other hobby participants and the public in general of having to tolerate the time and space wasted by unsightly, boring, pointless and just plain "stupid" hobbies.
    Yeah, right!
    Honestly I prefer building classic and vintage American cars. I don't think I ever built any with "a million flames flying off them" even when I was 13 or 14, but that doesn't mean that I wouldn't. I've built car models that were factory stock, mild custom, hot rod, rust-bucket, rat rod, science fiction-fantasy and even a low rider. In my stash I have a couple of Army Jeeps, a Revell Peterbilt Model 359, a Chrysler Turbine Car, two 1964 Dodge 330 Ramchargers, an AMT Thunderbolt 1 Monster Truck, a Nautilus Submarine by Pegasus, an MPC Alien and much, much more. 
    I don't like to limit myself to building only one thing in only one way. I understand that some people need that security of sameness, but I need to challenge myself. To me, model building is a relaxing hobby that allows me to improve myself on a personal level by challenging my skill-set and perceptions of the world. 
    I feel a little sad that someone can seem to be so bitter over something that's supposed to be a fun and entertaining form of personal self expression but I guess that would be just another form of self expression.
    Any way, I hope that this answers the question and if it doesn't, then the answer must lie somewhere within and not without.
