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...
Agreed, we need to do more to get people off computers.
At school it is like
"so whats your hobby?"
"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.
