The key to it all was patience, having little money for hobbies, and bring willing to learn skills. Just about all of this is lacking in today's world! They'll never realize what they missed.I think people realized they missed not-all-that-great models that took forever to build and really never looked right, no matter how good your skills were.
I'll never understand why people wax nostalgic about the 'good old days' of the hobby when the models weren't nearly as good, took forever to build, and were nowhere near the quality and authenticity of what you can find today.
