Default Re: Museums section?

Many DIY-style forums I frequent have similar 'pinned post' sections.
A while ago I thought about suggesting something similar but as an excel spreadsheet. There would be a tab for each model with pictures, details of faults, details of components not obvious from Trader sheets etc. Basically whatever is relevant.

Whenever someone makes a post and manages to solve a problem with a particular model, they would be encouraged to add their experience to the spreadhseet for future reference. Likewise anyone starting to restore a particular model could download a brief summary of known faults.

I'm not sure how much appetite or need there would be for this. Not much to do with museums anyway so maybe needs a new thread if people are interested?
