How is that a kit review again? I mean the articel contains two cad renders of the future kit and that's it....

The option says preview Sebastian, that's the only way you can enter these (try it yourself)
It does say "previewed on" in the box.
This is a Scalemates side issue to fix

Hi Sebastian, Aaron

Your both correct in this instance, I have sent across the suggestion to change the wording so its easier.

thanks

Thank you for bringing this up :)

the main issue here is the international character of this website and the different meaning of "preview/review" on different modeling websites and regions of the world

Previously we used the word "Review"....

When we used that word, we got a lot of feedback that a "Review" is an article where you "build the thing/used the thing" => and we got plenty of building articles not even containing sprue pictures.

When we use review = we get plenty of "gallery articles"
When we use preview = we get plenty of "announcements"

In general
- If there are no sprue pictures = the "In-box reviews" section is not the right section. (if it is an interesting announcement with some extra info => very welcome in the comments section)

So for TMN, they use the word "preview" for an "announcement/news".... and is not our version of a "preview/review"

I'll add a label stating that "news announcement", or articles without "sprue pictures" are not intended

Thanks Tim. Good idea

Perhaps we could have a graded selection system (eg radio options) so each link can be properly identified? I don't like the idea of losing these news announcements because they give an idea of what's currently known.

The problem is the option to put an article in the box marked "Add preview" is clicked - the article then turns up sometimes in the reviews section. This is not where it was meant to go but it does end up there through no fault of the uploader.

Previews are not reviews that is understood, but the dialogue box doesn't allow for it presently

Adding a new section would solve it.

Oh, finally a 'review' for one of these newer and larger 1:32 kits. Will read your review later once I'm finishing listening to this 1h physics debate/panel discussion on youtube. :)

That's not a review. At best it's a product announcment incl. some 3d cad work :(

it's hard to add a review - it doesn't show me where - some previews are shown as reviews etc
It's not out yes so it can't be a review

It also says "Previewed on The Modelling News"

I had high hopes for these kits, but on the UH-1D kit you can see the front canopy looks ok on the box art (!), but they got it obviously wrong on the kit on the largest clear parts, where the unique angled corner is apparently just mirrored over to the other side. I don't think Kitty Hawk know what they are doing or maybe they just don't care. Bizarre imo. As a kit maker you really have to look at reference photos, not just drawings if they even did that. It also looks like maybe they got the fuselage length wrong because of how the side doors doesn't seem to go far enough back when in the max open position. Somebody with proper drawings might figure that last thing out.
