I have often times wondered what is going to become of model building in general and ship modeling in particular. It seems like most of the members of the forum are either middle aged or retired with very few younger folks. When I was working with the Boy Scouts a few years ago I came across only one young man who enjoyed the modeling past-time. He was mostly into WWII aircraft, and to encourage him I gave him several aircraft models that I had laying around that I knew I'd never build. Out ov the more than 100 boys I worked with he was the only one. It seems like todays youth are just into instant gratification - video games, social media etc. Just woadering if anyone else has any thought about this.
