No! The last time was when I was a teenager back in the early 60's. An enjoyable pastime.

in the late 80s, i built some plastic wwII fighter planes
and in the 70s i built many plastic model ships (hms king geoge v, uss enterprise, uss missouri, uss arizona, ssn nautilus, uss enterprise nuclear carrier, uss essex, and a few others) and plastic model wwII aircraft (stuka, folke wolf, me-109, zero, mustang, thunderbolt, flying fortress, lightning, and many more)

I was trying to list all the ones I did, and every few days I'd remember something else that got purchased, and either is still boxed or was partially built.
Found a few tanks and planes unbuilt in a drawer, and staring back at me from a dusty shelf is a painted but not glued Battlestar fighter from the original series -- I dusted it off, washed it, added some details and it now sits drying its glued self off in another room, soon-to-be ready for a bit more paint and...
