Gilberto Kac <> :
I have not used -lms- but it is easy enough to estimate a -qreg- (in
time or powers of time or splines in time) or local -qreg-s, e.g.

clear all
u weight age using
g q20=.
g q80=.
qui forv i=20/74 {
 g kw=max(5-abs(`i'-age),0)
 qreg weight age [aw=kw], q(20)
 predict hat
 replace q20=hat if age==`i'
 drop hat
 qreg weight age [aw=kw], q(80)
 predict hat
 replace q80=hat if age==`i'
 drop hat kw
sort age
sc weight age, mc(gs12)||line q20 q80 age, leg(order(2 - 3))
