Just been thinking,I am the only person who often makes kits. Thats bad. How can we get more young people into the hobby?

Why is my undercarriage stuck to my thumb?

I'm a young modeller, myself and I know what you mean about the 50+ enthusiasts! Not many young modellers at all. Right now, I've only completed two sets, so I'm fairly new

Hi, I am 13 and have been building models for about half a year now. Glad to hear that there are others like me out there :-). Such a nice way to get away from screens. Wish there where more of us...

Why is my landing gear bent and stuck to my thumb?

Agreed, we need to do more to get people off computers.

At school it is like

"so whats your hobby?"

"making models."

"LOL thats dead!"

"So whats your hobby?"

"FORTNITE! BETTER THAN YOURS!"

"Thats not a hobby, thats like watching tv"

I thinks all schools should have model making in art/DT

and that more ipms branches should be welcoming to children.

If I had a model shop I would give discounts to under 18s.
