Guard your passion, lest it be seen as an obsession.

Don’t let your passion be deemed an obsession.

The hobby of constructing detailed  (e.g. 1/35 scale) military models may attract you on several levels:

  1. It’s a solitary pursuit, requiring intense concentration.
  2. The orderly array of accurate parts on their sprues is pleasing.
  3. The smooth, clear, plastic bags that protect the sprues are a delight to handle and open.
  4. Successfully completed models represent immutable evidence of achievement.
  5. Each addition to your military ‘force’ conveys a small sense of power. Don’t try to explain this feeling to anyone, as they’ll laugh in your face.

If you do love this hobby, take care not to reveal your passion. Otherwise, a parent may pronounce you ‘obsessed’ and ban you from models for a year  (thus triggering one of your most painful childhood punishments).
