A great advantage offered by the aircraft models is that they allow hobbyists to take a point of view “divine”, a sort of illusory “eye of god” that puts in apparent condition of superiority, who created the model in question; in Airplanes sector also, the activity of production of the models or “customization” of the pieces produced in series, reveals the appearance of great competition among amateurs.
In particular, in the “game” of Airplanes-modelling, individualism coexist with a sense of belonging in some way, in fact it makes no sense spectacularly “customizing” their own aircraft-model, not either to perform in risky stunts, if not for their audience of faithful “playmates”.
A sort of magic circle, is being created, like a club or a tribe, with their own language, with a code of rules that you are forbidden to break or you are out from the group. The first priority is being the best “simulator” among the others.
The aircraft-models are eclectic personalized and fun representations of a real aircraft and really close to the airfield a real airport is operating, and with its activity it considerably resizes the ambitions of modelers who can compete with regular airplanes, winning in skill, chromaticism and absence of risk to the pilot.
The control of the vehicle becomes “remote” or virtual, as simulated on a smaller scale, and the more the object is miniaturized and “seductive”, the larger the hobbyst’s vanity and his ambition to be well considered as a champion, even if just for a few minutes.
