Model trains, miniatures painting, woodworking vintage electronics repair. All kinds of stuff really.

Haven't done it due to space. And time. And money. But mostly space.

Woodworking is awesome. I finally got a garage with enough space for it a year ago and I love it. So far I've built a workbench, some cedar compost bins, and a crib for my daughter. Now that I have a kid I have no free time for it anymore though.

Making the minis is fun, but unless you got a cool group of friends, the game is meh.

Get a bunch of army men. There are some good rule sets you can use that come close to scratching that itch. Combat Storm is a commercial ruleset for army men that's pretty good, but they charge.

I started Rock Climbing this year. Best sport ever. Most gyms have a first-timer intro pass so you can get started for cheap. Gear - if you have a friend who climbs, you can borrow just about everything you need except for a pair of shoes

I thought running would be a super cheap sport. But you need special great to run in the cold (20~40°F) and after dark. Races cost money. You pound through shoes. Even that's not cheap.

Climbing is a great sport - and not especially expensive. Go for it

I want to restore old vehicles again. I used to help my dad when I was little. I want to do the same for my boy.

That's a good one. You can make your dream car exactly the way you want it.

I personally want to do amateur radio, but I never really prioritized it and so never started.

I was watching tv eating breakfast, and there’s a Japanese guy who started radio when he was in middle school (year of Tokyo Olympics) and has continued for over half a century, now over 70 years old, owns his own mountain where he has a shack and antenna at the top. He saved up money to buy and build this as a career electrician, and is now retired enjoying his hobby.

Small electronics, yes Rasp Pi, but not necessarily that. This has always fascinated me. I was unable to perform in my 'shop class' so had to drop it (broken arm). I always thought I'd enjoy that line of work.

I've built computers before and repaired some stuff. But I think it would be really cool to make something that works from scratch.

And Stand-Up Comedy.

Try looking into Arduino if the Pi does not interest you. If you are looking into getting into real basic stuff then I'd suggest buying a set of P-DIP 555 timers and a set of 74HCXX (also DIPs) logic chips. You might also need some basic resistors and capacitors in standard values and a bunch of LEDs. With that stuff you should be able to breadboard a binary clock or something and start to understand how to practically apply these things.
