I may be turning 50 in a few months, but on the average, my age is just under 25.

Personal logo Bobgnar Supporting Member of TMP16 Apr 2019 9:41 p.m. PST

I'm surprised at so many over 60. Let's have another poll
Under 50
50 to 60
61 to 70
71 to 80
Over 80
If you prefer not to say just don't bother to answer

I myself am one month short of 75. I have been playing with toys soldiers since I was five.

As with everything, I am below average.

A few years ago I was in a model shop in Bath and had a long chat with a fellow modeller whose latest project was the Airfix German E-Boat.

He was 92.

There is hope for us all….
