Hobby model making is a very popular pastime for people around the world. A Google search for “Hobby Model Making” (with the quotes, for an exact phrase search) yields 419,000 pages of results. Nearly every directory or classifieds section online includes a hobby art section and every major town in the world has an arts and crafts store.
You’ll find a hobby store in pretty much any reasonable sized shopping mall too. So before I even really get into this article, I know I am putting myself up against a formidable army of avid hobbyists from around the world. I know that hobby art is incredibly popular and countless people are passionate about their hobbies. Nevertheless, I am proposing the question:
Is Hobby Model Making an Epic Waste of Time?
This whole debate started when I came across a video on YouTube by JezuzFreek777 (Jonathan Anthony Banville). If you’re a hobby model making artist, you might like to check out his videos. He makes a lot of awesome models from pop cans. They really are quite impressive. I can’t deny that. But the question being asked in this article is not whether the models JezuzFreek777 are cool or not. It’s: “Is JezuzFreek777 wasting his time?”.
This is the video (below) that started the debate. Disclaimer: I’m pretty sure JezuzFreek777 does not consider this a debate. He’s simply defending his art and the time he spends on it. I also acknowledge that he feels quite offended by my point of view. So due to the fact he made a video about my comments, and he seems super upset — I have made a response video, which you’ll find at the end of this article, explaining my point of view in detail; so that there is no misunderstanding, because JezuzFreek777 does seem quite unnecessarily upset.

So to wrap everything up I have made a response to JezuzFreek777. While I understand that JezuzFreek777 is offended and feels upset by my point of view, I hope that he takes it with a grain of salt and doesn’t get too upset over it or lose any sleep. After all, it’s just the opinion of one man and it’s an opinion that is most likely not shared by a vast majority of people. Lighten up JezuzFreek777. No hard feelings 🙂
