1957 Chevy stepside

Built this for a friend to replicate his 1:1 which he had to sell for college tuition.   He displays it proudly.   This is one of the first models to get completed after getting back into the hobby.  Other than the windshield fit and flash cleanup it went together well and someday I'll have to do one for myself.

I don't recall seeing this job at career day.  :)   Sure looks like fun.

What would you do?

First off sorry about the generic title don't know how to word it better.  I was at Hobby Lobby this week and saw a young man (mabey 11 or 12) looking intently at the models trying to make a decision.  In my mind I remember my own youth and how unaffordable it seemed to me at that time.  So In my mind I was thinking I have extra parts and models I know I won't build and would have liked to offer him something in his interest but don't want to end up on a list where  I have to register ( if you Know what I mean)  So after a little chit chat we went our separate ways.  Now to my question, what would you do and how not to sound like the old guy with candy (models)  I truly just wanted to help out a young man who reminded me of myself and I would like to do this in the future.  Any help is appreciated. Thanks
