The Russians have a saying "better is the enemy of good enough". There is no truer thought that sums up scale modeling to me! Now "better" isn't a scientific theory rather it's completely subjective. People have been arguing what's "better" for ages - techniques, models, paints, reference. and even box art! All I can say is I know better when I see it, and when I see it, I like it! If you disagree with me, that's fine with me. Just realize that there are many different ways to enjoy the hobby, and being completely obsessed over small details is one of em.
