  Modelling usually starts as a constructive hobby in childhood, then develops into an educational past time which can last into old age. There are many constructive hobbies, apart from our own road going steam based and the Gloucester and District Model Boat Club’s that are more than just a past time for grey haired boys and girls. Play at an early age feeds our desire to learn about the world around us, so playing on into adulthood and beyond helps us to continue learning. Technology moves on and the younger generations move into areas we could not even dream about when we were youngsters. They can play happily with modern technology without ever knowing or understanding how this technology works, or even care about looking up the available history of it’s development. Not wishing them to become mere consumers, it would be good to encourage our youngsters to participate in constructive hobbies that were the norm for our generations.
  This question has been debated at MSRVS committee meetings, as expressed by our chairman’s comments on the website. Without young people participating in our constructive hobby, MSRVS (and other club) futures will start to fade. Our youngsters will also miss out on the opportunity to understand the old technologies and history that lead to the modern technologies that they currently use and enjoy.
