Have you considered that the proper term for these folks might be
"model builders" as opposed to "modelers". When I think of a "modeler" what comes to mind is someone who tries to capture something in miniature as it is/was in real life most of the time, not the moment it was completed. Thus I would suggest that those who build but never
weather might better be called "model builders". I do not see it as in anyway diminishing what these folks accomplish but simply a way to better define the overall hobby.

Cordially, Don Valentine
