SCU Topic: Your Stress Free Build

What is your source for pure relaxation?

The hobby is full of ups and downs. One minute, you're on top of the world admiring a flawless natural metal finish on a 1/48 P-47, the next minute you're on your hands and knees scouring the valleys of the carpet for the 1/72 scale pitot tube that you just mishandled. It can be an environment of refreshment, or a pit of despair.
Its during these low points that I like to turn to builds that I know will elevate me back to a state of nirvana. While it may not be my favorite subject to work on, it relieves the stress and gets me back on track. So, this month I want to know what subject relaxes you the most?

Hat tip to The Museum Modeler for this month's topic inspiration!
