average age of modelers
Posted by JJFlyer on Monday, May 14, 2018 1:28 PM

hello,

I have long been interested in the decline of newcomers to modeling. so I want to do a poll on the average age of the people on this forum. If you see this can you please give your age in 10-year increments (0-10,10-20,20-30,etc.) and how many years of experience in modeling in 5-year increments(0-5,5-10,10-15,etc.) I will post a graph with gathered information on the 27th of may. 

Thanks,

JJflyer

Hi,

I'm 50-60, but not really sure what to put for experience.  I guess when I was younger 10-15 plus maybe another 5 or so now.  So Overall I guess 15-20 maybe.

Will be 72 at the end of June and I'm pretty average. I've only been back in the hobby for a little more than a year.

OK. On the bench:
