I usually do this. When I feel that a model has gotten "old," I replace it and give the old one away. Usually my conversions, and usually because I think of a way to do it better.
I bought a trygon, a carnifex and a set of dragon wings to make a nid harpy. A few months back I gave it away because I figured out how to make one better.
And I occasionally give away unopened boxes that were purchased at a moment of weakness. Like that time I bought a GK terminator. Good model, but still three days later I looked at it and thought wtf...

|Angelus Censura||I've been hoping for this to happen to me - but more with bits than minis. I plan on buying a bunch of random SM kits for bits as soon as an insurance claim goes through (which could be months and months as my back is showing little to no improvement). I want to create my own SM Chapter, full of fun conversions and bit bashed goodness, but being out of work for the time being, the best I can do is plan, write fluff, and plan some more. Maybe luck will find me and I will stumble upon some free goodies or win one of those addicting bullshit lotto scratchers|

Heh, I've had this happen both ways.
Once when visiting this antiques 'mall' [building with old people selling lots of their old stuff in little stalls], an older guy had a mound of old file boxes full of gaming miniatures, mostly 40k some warhammer and some other games. I picked up a large size miniature case, mounted fantasy lord of nurgle, part of an unpainted undead army, chaos chariot, and several blisters of nurglings for 30 us dollars.
And I also have a standing offer of a used tyranid army from my friend's attic. But I haven't had the time to pick it up and either repaint or sell it. I can't even pretend to keep up with my own miniature projects. I have Chaos projects stretching back several years on my desk now. =/

1500pts+ of Guard, well painted, some Dark Angels (Ten of the old Terminators, they're so small!), 1500pts+ Chaos Space Marines, fairly painted, four Necron Warriors with Catachan heads on 'em, Tau battleforce, built and painted, the 2nd Ed. starter box, painted, Cityfight board.
Best Christmas present EVER.

|coke123||I recently turned up at a mate's place, and another of my friends just gave me his 2.5-3k Space Marine army. Turned out he was moving, and didn't really want to have to deal with his Tau or Marines (the Tau went to another friend).|

|Midge913||I keep my fingers crossed that the same will happen to me.... The best I usually get is a good bits bin find at the FLGS.|
