I've been building models since I was age 10. I've kind of gone in and out of the hobby through the years because of schooling and career but now that I'm pretty well settled in, I've been building pretty regularly over the last 4-5 years. Although I've built some WWII ships and planes in the past, I now mainly build sci-fi ships. My favorite subjects have been Star Trek and Star Wars but also have built many from 60s-70s sci-fi TV. A couple of yrs ago I started a Youtube channel just to put in my 2 cents and give advice. Surprisingly it's up to well over 800K views and growing. I enjoy scale modeling as it provides an escape from daily stresses and routines. It also has been a great way to stay in touch with my childhood memories and simpler times.
