Video: Watching This Honda Civic Model Get Built Is Oddly Soothing

Model building can be both a satisfying and rewarding hobby, as the finished product is something that you put together with your own hands.

But for those of us who may not have that level of patience, watching someone else build a model can almost be just as soothing and enjoyable.

This is oddly soothing. In the early days of the pandemic--feels like a million years ago--a buddy built a model during a FB Live. It was one of the ships from Space 1999!, I believe. But it was more than just watching him build a model. He chatted about his love of sci-fi, life stuff, model tips, etc. Again, it was oddly soothing.

I owned a Civic vaguely like that.  Mine was a white CX with blue vinyl seats, the last year for vinyl seats in a Civic and the last year for manual steering in a Civic.  The factory SOHC engine was replaced with a DOHC unit from an Integra LS, effectively doubling the horsepower in one fell swoop.  What a ball to drive 

I wouldn't mind having a model of that car, and a few others that I have owned, as MORE tangible reminders of " the good times ".
