My friends husband has just spent a not-insignificant amount of money converting their son's bedroom into a model railway layout. There is track all round the walls with a swing bridge type arrangement across the door. There are turntables and all sorts for the locos & he is planning on making lots of model 'features'.
Amazingly (for somebody who always declared himself useless at useful DIY) he has managed to build all the staging (sturdy and level) and do the quite complicated electrics himself. Friend is not impressed!
My own 'better' half took up go-karting again at the age of 50 & now does semi-serious racing when he can.He has just bought a tiny tent, sleeping bag and camping stove to recreate his scouting days. He finds 'toilet' jokes very funny.
IMO most men seem to get to the age of 16 & decide 'that's quite old enough, thank you!'
(Wouldn't be without him though )
