In my opinion 21-34 should be divided in 21-26 and 27-34 or something close to this.

Yep, the spans are a bit much. 5 years in each would be better. I don't feel a lot like me when I was 21 but as I'm 33 this year I'm still in that group.

Cheers David. :occasion14: - I've already booked the ticket, let the drinking begin. :giggle: - I think the legal age is 21, but they have this thing now called "Challenge 25" so if you look younger then 25 you must show ID.  :rolleyes:

i think i made the point earlier in this thread about the surprisingly young age here (surprising to me at least) giving us hope for the future..... then i started looking at Google Trends, which is fascinating to spend 20 mins exploring.

if you look at the term "diecast" for example, or all varients ("diecast car", "diecast model car", etc), it shows a pretty consistent pattern:  the hobby had more interest from 2005 - 2008, then starts to tail off and flatten out - with obvious xmas spikes.

If you look at "model car" however, it's more encouraging -  high in 05, gets to lowest at 11, but then happily starts to pick up. Perhaps a reflection of the fact model cars aren't so often diecast these days; who knows.

https://www.google.c...ore#q=model car

The model train guys (sorry, don't get it) are on a slow decline... but Lego, going from strength to strength. Am off to look  for more stuff - is fascinating :)
Aiming to collect all post-war Le Mans winners in scale 1:18. Even the gaps!

Very interesting indeed. I just search for Autoart. Interest over time is in a decline. Most interest in Hongkong, Singapore, Taiwan, Romania, Belgium...
