I usually make static models. That is making like a “picture” of the model and not a “video”. I’m not very fan of animated models because there is always something I should but can’t animate : figures, mechanical pieces, wether conditions etc. I long ago made a practice to realize only static models. However there can be exceptions. Big scales space models allow animation since there is no figurines. That’s what I’ve done with the Enterprise light-up, using a LED kit to simulate the landing sequence seen in the movies.
