    Cleaning up files and stuff I began to realize just how obsessed with this I am...

    [​IMG]

    there is even a dvd with another 2.5g of models, this is just accumulation since burning that one... when I find a model I have to keep it...

    this is just papermodel files and instructions from other people, My own junk and references for creations- as well as 3d meshes for pepakura and meta arent even included here...

    So in conclusion, 6gigs of models and I still dont even scratch the surface of the models that I really want-lol

    anyone else out there as much of a crazy packrat as me?

    I guess this comes as part of the hobby.
    Big advantage of digital models is that they do not take physical space and are very easy to stash away from prying eyes of the family :grin:

    I have 200+ unbuilt printed models, several digital from from Nobi, Kancho, DeWayne, SPI Shop and of course my own.
    Add to that 100+ models on wish list.......:roll:

    650 Mb give or take, I only print out one model at a time, simply because if I need to reprint a page, sorry WHEN I need to reprint a page I can be assured the colours will match!

    Uhh, that's not to bad. I checked mine, and it pops in at 9.67 gb. Not
    counting reference materials.

    Holy Moses, i´ve actually counted 4 DVD´s and about 150 original models in my "to do" box. And this number doesn´t include my own created models!

    To all creators: stopp creating new models!!!

    I´m now 39 years old, and depending to my speed per model that will be enough for the next 50 years!!


    Best wishes and good glueing to all!!

    10 gigabytes! I need help! I actually " quit" downloading 5 gigabytes ago, but they still keep showing up. Am I complaining? Hell NO.

    As someone told me, if you want to slow down your downloading or purchasing of cardmodels, try designing them!

    Anyone with less than 10 gig is just a beginner. Mine now comes in at 30 gig, but that includes reference material. It doesn't include 3D content. By the time I get done scanning the recent stuff from Lighthouse and going through a 10-year collection of magazine cover disks, I think I am going to need to upgrade my external CD to 160 gig.....gee, who's that guy with the big butterfly net....and he's coming in my direction.....HEL
