Review Area Guidelines

James H

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


All members of MSW are entitled to publish their kit reviews in this area. It isn't just a privilege for staff members. We want a collective voice as to the evaluation of kits, both old and new. However, there are some very simple guidelines that really must be adhered to in order for this section to work as designed. Also, all kits under review must be un-started. This is the only balanced way to get an overall initial feel for the kit.


Kit reviews must:


  1. Give an initial assessment of the overall package with regards to standard and presentation.
  2. All materials must be assessed for quality, including ply and other timbers including strip and dowel, fittings, photo-etch, rigging blocks and cord, sail materials, decals (where supplied), cast materials including cannon and culverins etc, 
  3. Kit design approach.
  4. An overall, personal assessment of the model construction and other interesting and pertinent things you note as you look through the plans, instructions and other drawing materials.
  5. Your review must contain clear photographs. Nothing hazy or fuzzy etc.


Please do not use this area for starting new topics asking questions about models that aren't under review. Where you do wish to ask a question about a review, then post it as a reply to the review topic, and hopefully those questions can be answered. 


This area isn't a general model kit discussion place. Please respect the intention of this area and keep other discussion within the other relevant forum areas.

You can add those on the first post of a topic if you're the poster, Claire. If you're not the original poster, an admin or moderator can add them.
