Consumers aged 50 and older account for the largest share of sales for manufacturers of model kits. They have been practising their hobby for decades and invest in it to the tune of many hundreds or tens of hundreds on average. In addition to the main target group, children are also increasingly the focus for stable to growing sales. Many manufacturers have therefore introduced inexpensive entry-level models in order to get children and young people interested in model construction and train sets.
