Keep or assemble???

I suspect your itching to build them, but concerned about any impact on their
'value' as unbuilt kits.

So build them, but as you do so, make a video of the progress, and document any
oddities you'll likley find as you complete the kits and get them working.

Frankly, a good job of documenting the (generally low) quality of kits from that
is probably more 'valuable' than the unbuilt kit.
