I don't think they are redundant

Response to Are reviews redundant?

The best ones would include something for both camps that you mention in your blog post, though.

If they talked about the accuracy, and also talked about the ease of assembly, then one review of a kit would work for both camps.

Now, as an "accuracy nut", I am just like all the rest,,,we would be thrilled to find kits that are accurate and also allow us to be "just an assembler" of a well engineered model kit. That is everyone's secret when they point out the inaccuracies in a well engineered model kit. They are secretly hoping to "just assemble and paint" a model, and get an accurate OOB build from it. It is the only possible reason for why they talk about the "errors" in a modern kit. Myself included.

I don't intend to "slam" any of the fine OOB builds of kits with the fine paint jobs that I have seen, that didn't address the "unseen mm" errors. Those are, as you say, a very large part of this hobby, and very important to it.
