    It depends on the individual, what is classed as unnecessary, I sometimes buy a boat that I like, then after a couple of years, decide to sell it, just losing interest in said boat, we all have our foibles๐Ÿถ

    Usually one collects things that 'might come in handy sometime', shunts them around for 5 to 20 years, then decide it isn't so handy after all, so chuck it away.
    The following week you have a use for it,
    and have to go out and spend money on a new 'thing'. ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ 
    Something to do with Murphy I believe!

    Surely it's only hoarding if you collect unnecessary things.

    Thanks Doug for the offer of using your model log list, just got to find all the boats now,loft is full! garage has three yachts in there, plus a couple of BIG RAF boats, will have to take some piccys of them, as not sure what they are, have doubled up on a few of the classics, 3 sea commanders, 2 sea queens, 2 sea rovers, and the usual fire boats in boat scales, most of these need tlc, just need the time to work on them.
    btw, I have just been informed by the boss! that I'm a hoarder?

    Feel free to copy the structure of my spreadsheet.
    It'll give you a start and you can easily bend it to suit your needs.
    On the other hand it gives you a picture of the true horror of the situation!๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    ALL THAT CASH!! DON'T LET 'ER INDOORS SEE IT!!!!
    BTW: We would be pleased to welcome you to the Night Watch Midshipman.

    "so many boats, and many kits to build, I can't let a bargain go by, I tell my wife I'm saving them for when I get to old age, (am there already) she says I will never live long enough to build them, so my reply is, I have have less house jobs/gardening, it give me more time to build boats! "
    He he๐Ÿ˜ That could have been written by me Peter๐Ÿ‘
    Except that I abolished the institution of wife after two disasters๐Ÿค”

    Feel free to use my Model Log list XL framework to put your own data in Peter.
    Mine grows spasmodically, as I think of new data items to include, such as payload and which RX, motors and ESCs etc from the stash I decided to use for a particular model.
    If I get a Round Tuit๐Ÿ˜‰ Saves me having to reinvent the wheel every time๐Ÿ˜Š

    You may also notice that the list indicates where I already have etched parts or wooden decks for various models. It's by no means complete but a start!
    Cheers, Doug๐Ÿ˜Ž
    I assume you are signing on for the Middle Watch with Midshipwoman Nerys! Good man๐Ÿ‘

    "looks like someone made a start at it then took it apart again."
    RATS!Depending on how much damage he did that will reduce it's potential as an original kit.
    If you feel you have time then build it, with your usual skill (but don't let any of the yoghurt pot labels show๐Ÿ˜) and then advertise it. I would still try first as a kit, you might still get a bit more from an avid builder or just a vintage kit collector๐Ÿ˜‰
    Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž
