playtime 222 Er... I actually had no idea that 'Gallery' was for full build reviews (which I value more than the in-box reviews). I thought it was just a policy that the only in-box reviews were hosted on the site. So my 2c is to go the other way. In-box review is a well-known term, so please don't change that. 'Gallery' on the other hand did not imply 'Full review' to me... Now to go an see if I can find all those build articles I thought weren't linked...
Bruce Leyland-Jones Other on-line modelling review sites refer to looking at box contents as previews, or in-box previews. That said, perhaps as the understanding of language becomes more diverse, some now call looking at what's in the box as a review. I note that magazines tend not to and may even use the term 'First Look'. I do think that the term 'Gallery' implies pictures of a finished model. I picked 7 kits at random and all had galleries that only showed completed models. Perhaps, to avoid confusion, a new category could be created, for 'Build-up Reviews'? This would distinguish them from 'in-box Reviews'.

playtime 222 Yeah, that was what Gallery implies for me too. In-box review, builds, gallery (if needed) - something like that.

Bruce Leyland-Jones Is there any further development with this? For example, I've been looking for build-up reviews for several kits and all I can find are previews, telling me what's in the box. I don't need these, because I already have the kit in my hand. What I do need are build-ups, that might tell me about things to look out for.
Looking around the Gallery sections, I find lots of nicely built models, but no information about the actual build.
If I was permitted to post my own build-ups, perhaps in a section called Build-up Reviews, I'm sure others will follow suit.

scalemates Gallery = all finished/built models (With no text, a bit if text or huge amount of text). There is no plan to split current gallery. Gallery is for 99% added automatically and we can't make the distinction between a build up or a pure album. Nor do we plan to start linking the 1000 build up articles (typically seen on forums). As they range from the first steps to being 50% complete to fully built.
