Human scale architecture

Architects frequently complain to me that the architectural models they make for competitions cost them tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars to make. That's curious, because one-tenth scale model of a person standing can be purchased for 75 cents - far less than the $5 it costs to buy a model car at the same scale.

I'm confused by this statement. I don't see one can compare an architectural model to a model os person or a mass produced model of a car. I think this is also related to supply and demand.
