I recently posted a finished model of mine on another builder's WIP - it seemed relevant to the way the discussion was going. But my photo was then quoted twice, quite innocently of course, but it did look a little intrusive.
At 66 I don't worry too much about the future of the hobby (never did really). But I'm greatly enjoying the present state of affairs, where us old guys seem to be the main target market. For a number of years now there have been more interesting classic subjects released each year than I can keep up with (Hudsons, Chryslers, Pontiacs etc). Buy lots of these and now and you can keep building even if the whole hobby dries up. What me worry.
Great to see some unusual Japanese subjects, specially when so nicely done. (And I liked your choices for European cars in your other post. Thought I was the only one here who'd like to see a Ford Zephyr or a Triumph Herald.)
