    Answer a, b, c or d:

    Question 1

    How many kits do you have in your stash?

    a) none – I just buy them when I need them.
    b) 1-10
    c) 11-20
    d) all the kits in the world

    Question 2

    Where did you buy your last kit?

    a) eBay
    b) Modelzone
    c) Hannants
    d) A rather earnest bloke at a leisure centre in Hinckley

    Question 3


    How important is accuracy to you?

    a) not arsed. I’ve even done models with made-up paint and decal schemes.
    b) well, it’s nice if my models are accurate, but I won’t lose sleep over it.
    c) I prefer my models to be authentic representations of the actual airframe.
    d) I have destroyed models after learning of inaccuracies. And taken it out on the dog.

    Question 4

    What does your wife think of your hobby?

    a) she says all men should have a hobby and couldn’t be more supportive.
    b) she moans occasionally about the time I give to it, but generally doesn’t mind. Better that than chasing skirt, she says.
    c) she clearly resents the time I devote to the hobby.
    d) don’t know, you’d have to ask her. She nipped out to the shops three years ago and I haven’t seen her since.

    Question 5

    Where do you do your modelling?

    a) kitchen table
    b) the study
    c) a dedicated workbench
    d) a soundproof bunker that can be locked from the inside

    Question 6

    What do you think of James May?

    a) Great bloke. He’s really funny on Top Gear. Did you see that one where they tried to turn a Robin Reliant into a space shuttle? Wicked.
    b) It’s good that he’s raising awareness of modelling, especially among young people.
    c) He’s alright I suppose. He should be careful with kids around models though – all those sharp implements and solvents.
    d) The long haired, foppish bastard. Modelling is a serious business and not for children. And anyway, the wing span on that 1:1 Spitfire was 4mm out. I checked.

    Question 7

    How much time do you devote to modelling each week?

    a) oh, I dunno. Couple of hours? Depends when I can fit it in.
    b) an hour or two a day maybe.
    c) all my spare time.
    d) six 12 hour days. And 16 hours on Sunday.

    Question 8

    What is your idea of a perfect weekend?

    a) a weekend at the beach with the wife and kids
    b) just kicking back, going for a few walks maybe, but fitting in an hour or two with the kits
    c) making some headway with the four models I have on the go
    d) RIAT!

    Question 9

    Which is your favourite kit manufacturer?

    a) Airfix
    b) Hasegawa
    c) Special Hobby
    d) Przemizckini Plastikovny Modelny Sp.z.o.o.

    Question 10

    How many times a day do you visit ww2aircraft.net?

    a) ww2aircraft.what?
    b) Once
    c) Maybe half a dozen times
    d) I come out in hives if I’m away for an hour.

    Answers

    Mostly a’s

    Clearly modelling doesn’t feature largely in your life, it’s something you enjoy but can take or leave. Perhaps there is more to the hobby than you realise and you would enjoy delving further.

    Mostly b’s

    You enjoy your modelling but it is part of a varied, balanced lifestyle. Well done.

    Mostly c’s

    Perhaps there is more to life than the little plastic aeroplanes, however you should be applauded for your commitment.

    Mostly d’s

    Seriously mate, you need to get out more.

    I'd have to say about 50/50 Bs and Cs. Over 70 models in the unbuilt stash.... buying only what I intend to build.
