Do you find cooking and scale modeling are similar?

Does anyone like to cook and take time to plate their meals?

I find that the more I'm getting into this hobby, I like to make my meals look pleasing....or maybe it's because I want to model more daily?

Pics to follow.

I cook most of the meals in my family - I rather enjoy it. I find that I'm wanting to make the food like professional looking. Like make it look so beautiful.
I use like little squirt bottles to get sauce on the plates instead of just using a spoon or knife to be more precise.

I know...it's weird.

I can see the similarities between the two, but I don't like to cook

There are similarities-you have specialized tools and materials in both; you follow instructions, whether to follow a recipe or instruction sheet, or intuitively, based on your experience; and presentation is definitely a part of both.

I like to do both, and if I think about it, I probably approach both tasks or processes the same way.

It's cold and rainy outside.

The green onions are imperative!
