Hi All,

I just got my Autoart C7 Corvette Dark Silver from Ebay.

The seller packaged it extremely well but the plastic side panels on both sides of the Autoart window box  are slightly concave and have subtle ripples / dimples.

Definitely ruins displaying the model in box.

This is a first for me - never had this with Autoart or any other brand before.

Anyone else experienced this before?

I am wondering if this is the fault of Autoart or the seller?

If the seller - would you complain to them?

Thanks:)
Jack

Their windowed display boxes are terrible, which is why they've now shifted to the full cardboard boxes as seen on the F-Type

I'd pick up a single display case for it & display it that way, then store the box away. It'll look better like that :smile:

I agree to that one. Almost every AUTOart window boxed model i have received has had a loose window. So i just toss them out. Liberate those models from their bondage!!!! Freedom, freedom I say!

I have alot of the autoart clear display boxes, they are terrible. I think its the way Autoart have designed them. Would be more expensive to get stronger material (its expensive enough as it is). As above mentioned, I would get some display cases instead.
