I'm in my eighties, began building models about age 7.  Joined my first model club when I was 15.  As I explained in the thread in General Modeling Discussions, when I joined there were only three of us teenagers in a club of 20+ members.  I have been in modeling clubs ever since, and the percentage of younger members remained about the same.  And, the discussions about lack of young participitation threatening the hobby has continued all my life.  Look at model railroading.  It has never had much young people involved, yet remains a healthy and vital hobby.

One of the reasons average age is going up is the rising life expectancy.

50 - 60 - age

30 - 40 - building

 

I started building when I was eight.  Took a hiatus in high school and my early to mid 20's.  The Boss got me back into it.  One day we were in a toy store looking for a gift for one of our nephews.  The store had model airplanes and I mentioned to her that I used to build when I was younger.  She got me two kits for Christmas that year and I've been building ever since.

 

Retired and living the dream!
