  1. Hi all, The surface of this topic has been touched in several other treads, but would like, with the help of you guys, to define the term "weekend modeler" and what they typically shop for. Now before some of you say, stop this nonsense and build a model, yes please do ? But all kidding aside, if weekend modelers are responsible for up to 90% of model kit sales (that is a lot of buying power), it influences the decisions made by the spin doctors behind those pearly gates ?of model kit Walhalla (industry) on what should be released. Therefore, please let us in a civilized non aggravated way brainstorm on this... So, if you stop by your favorite well-stocked Hobby Lobby, Hobby Town USA, Local Hobby shop, looking for a new addition to your collection or picking up some paint, glue or other model supplies, do you notice by looking at the shelves or observing / talking with people who buy/sell model kits what the non-lunatic fringe buyer purchases or is interested in? Does it look like they always buy the same (type of) kit, similar subject matter, emptying the shelves of that product in the store. Do they seem loyal to a specific brand? Do they shop in a certain price bracket? Do they pass on certain (type of) kits? Who is that typical non-lunatic fringe buyer, is it a guy, what age, gearhead or office guy, etc....or is it still a mom buying a present for little Johnny? Not an easy task to find out, but maybe some of you noticed, the behavior of this special kind of breed of model kit builders, if not get yourself a trench coat, hat, a magnifying glass and find out, Ha! Thanks, and for later enjoy the end of the year celebrations! Cheers Luc
