I think that Paul was using hyperbole, a deliberate exaggeration to express effect, e.g, "I could eat a horse between two mattresses!"
If he does have "around 580 models," I for one, would be interested in finding out what they all were and where he stores them!

Yes , it's because we are builders at heart as said,
I have a skyvan ready but unflown , a few foamies ready to go, couple of new ones in the boxes , a foamy Goliath sitting on the bench new fwing cut and nacelles fitted .... so why have I just bought a pack of cut ribs and formers from C gulltech for a KK Invader, the plan of which is now pinned to the board and covered with parchment paper ready to start
wife actually suggested I sell some of them

Can't answer your questions DD, sorry.
For myself, I'm with Tim, I can't multi task very well. When I do, it doesn't work very well, and the 'proper' project just gets shelved for a while.
I do say that in the full knowledge that I've cobbled together a few foamies whilst having an ongoing 'proper' project. But as to starting a big thing whilst another big thing is on the go, no, that doesn't work for me. Get first one done first.
As for hoarding, I have no unstarted kits, no stack of wood (beyond what the current build needs), only one or two plans, and a 'fleet' of only four proper models (plus a few foamie flying wings) - I don't like hangar queens. Whilst I like building, these things are for flying, and if they aren't flown, then perhaps I built the wrong thing.
I'll admit I do have an old chest of drawers full of stuff which probably needs sorting out and half of it throwing away or selling. Time is precious though and I'm not about to do that in the very near future.

I like to build not don't like to finish, so I have to work to the discipline of finish it before starting new. It slows my build rate but then again it is probably a good thing as lack of space means it has to be one in/ one out, with only space for 7 models max.
It means I have to curb my urges to build. When I'm about 3/4 through a build I feel really enthusiastic about building something new, something different and do some research, sometimes buying parts like plans, motors and esc and feeling frustrated I cannot start - but strangely when I've finished the ongoing project I find I've lost interest in the new one and not sure what to build next.
I appreciate this is no help to you David, although I would certainly ditch the extensive repair lobs after salvaging as much as possible for new projects.
I thought that writing this would help me understand why I'm a 'frustrated builder'. But it hasn't.

Definitely not hyperbole or exaggeration!
I've seen him unloading his gear at our open days. It amazes me how he gets the horse into his caravan

Do they all have batteries Paul - if so, maintenance must be quite a commitment!
