well i dont really understand the comment of the crazy explorer ...
holland always has been a country with a large amount of modelbuilders and i already stated the new generation is not really into it ..
but i actually see so much people build and hear of people who have build or picking up the hobby again
and like said the amount of shops are def. going down in the past years but i know of a lot of nice shops where you can get a lot of stuff and still walk in the door and look around ..
and like said a lot of ship builders , militairy builders , the thing is .. and thats the thing a lot of dutch people dont go online to share their hobby , still we have a nice online community , maybe not massive but then again our county is smaller then most states in the usa
and our neighbours from belgium always have been people to start clubs / comunity's and do stuff every weekend i know because i always was part of the belgium carshow scene and went to belgium every weekend .
and believe me every weekend there are so much shows and markets in belgium on any level of stuff , so many different things to do there and
people there massivly go out to do stuff , no matter what hobby it is there is something to do there
the dutch tend to stay in build in silence and are not that active in online community's
so i still believe there are a whole lot of modelbuilding enthousiast here
like said from my younger years till now i have come across so much people who build its ....
and i myself only started building for real in 2008 .. sure i build a model or 2 when i was young (better said glued together) but really discovered the hobby at a late age myself
its like when i saw the question i thought yes holland is a modelbuild country because i'm turning 38 and as long as i can remember i have seen people build , found stuff online and went to shops every ounce in a while (back in the day with my dad) so that why i believe modelling is tied to the dutch
