A quick explanation of the difference between aircraft and armor modelling

As I’m in the process of being domesticated, I’ve been trying my hands on different stuff in the kitchen. (I did cook a lot beforehand, so I’m not a complete noob.)

Anyhow, trying to get a cake recipe right, it drawn on me.

Building armor models is like cooking. You do have the recipe, but there’s a lot of room to manoeuvre. You can add more of this, you can substitute that, you can just leave out something else; and the results will be -for the most part- still pretty good.

With aircraft on the other hand, you must be extremely precise, just like with baking. If the temperature is slightly off, if you add a tiny bit more baking soda, or do anything sloppy, the result will be, well, something that is certainly edible, but definitely NOT a cake.
