The answers are many, but most importantly scale modeling is one of the best ways to develop a variety of practical skills. Scale modeling is used in fields like engineering, military, architecture, filmmaking etc. Many enthusiasts simply enjoy building models and even have their own collections of various scale models. Every field uses models for various purposes but the general principle of construction is the same. The process of constructing models, be it a car or a military truck includes researching the history of it, exploring its structure and details, planning the process of the construction and of course managing the assembling process of your model.
