A survey about what kits do you prefer

Recommended Posts

It's a bit 'closed question' and there are variables. I don't just model aircraft, and I buy from many manufacturers. As to well engineered or crude kits, it depends on the subject matter, not the manufacturer. You need to allow for multiple answers.

I'm currently doing a survey as a part of a school project in design & technology. I would like you all to please complete it. It's 10 questions long. 

 

 

Here's the link: https://surveynuts.com/surveys/take?id=140084&c=3091373729FRPL

Sorry I can't complete this survey as its far to narrow and  relies on a straight yes or no answers.

 

 You will not get a correct result  if you start from the premise that all people are dedicated modellers of one type of kit  only, that will be either modern and or old, and in one price range. This is is naive thinking. I can personally tick yes to about 85% of the questions asked.

What type of kit do i like to model?  One that's made of plastic,  (with perhaps a bit of resin or PE added if I feel that way) on that particular day. Its a hobby, not something I do by rote.

I suggest you redo the survey with  a lot more open questions and the ability for multi selection for some answers.

Whilst agreeing with the shortcomings of this survey, let's bear in mind that it isn't an important international study that will affect the development of the hobby.  Vov is just asking for some data to feed into a school project, a learning exercise for him and his fellows.  That's all.  It doesn't matter if you could come back to this tomorrow and prefer a different but equally appropriate set of answers.  Those of us who've been around a while could perhaps write essays on several of these questions, and looking around the internet modelling sites we probably have already.  But that isn't the purpose of the study, and is outside its limited scope.

 

PS I assumed that the price range was intended as a maximum rather than a preferred, or even a usual.  A little clarity here would have helped.

I've done it boss, in the same style as my models- ignore the pedants ( they're for work) and went for the general impression

hope it goes well

K, will add more open questions to the survey & enable multiple answers

Done also, there are few more questions that need to be multiple choice IMO. Price and favourite manufacturer are cases in point. Depending on the subject matter the price varies and depending on the subject my favourite manufacturer changes as well.

I deal in statistics most of my working day so I hope that you end up with a good sample of data to base your project on. 

I feel a few questions could have allowed the option of multiple answers, however it's all completed to the best of my ability and the survey's scope.

 

Good luck and happy to help.... Dave.

What would be useful when you tweak the survey, would be to ad a comments slot. For instance, the question about which kit do you prefer. Somebody like myself could say that I have no preference and build what takes my fancy. Same with the price range. I don't buy a kit because it's in a price range, I buy it because that's what I want to build. I'll fill it in anyway as best I can.

As someone else who is trained in statistics I notice on the whole of BM there are probably more idiot comments about statistics than about models!

I'm happy to do your survey but note you can't change the questions in mid-stream and hope for it to be valid.

 

Edit - I have done it - good luck with your project.
