scalemates Please add as gallery articles, not inbox reviews
30. March at 23:12:43
Bruce Leyland-Jones Sorry...I thought a step-by-step build of a kit, complete with issues identified and resolved, would be more of a review than a simple 'Gallery'. I note that there is way more detail in most of my reviews than many of those from more established 'reviewers', especially as they seem to focus on not building the kit and, as a consequence, give misleading info.
31. March at 09:24:16
scalemates No need to say sorry...
-Gallery = built
-Inbox review = sprue pictures

(The best gallery article with most detailled info on the kit itself is still a "gallery", even if it provides more info than a mediocre inbox review)

Bruce Leyland-Jones Sprue pictures aren't a review...they're a preview. :P A Gallery usually only shows the completed model. It doesn't 'review' how it was built. I'll check out the Galleries.
As I contribute reviews to Scale Aircraft Modelling and Scale Aviation Modeller International, I thought it might be helpful to show my works in here.

scalemates So should we change "In box reviews" to "in box previews"?
1. April at 06:07:19
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... :D

playtime 222 And where do we report dead links???? (Not trying to hijack topic! but Blackburn Buccaneer S Mk.2B | is toast.)

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.
