I would like to highlight this comment from 118MOTORS that it is not true that the trunk and the hood does not hold. I have bought this earlier and founds that if you push the hood and trunk upwards until it extented position, it really holds and it has a bolt at the end of the hinge which hold it stills. We found that out because we did managed to dissemble the part of it re-assembled back.Features:
The Lancer Evo VII features an opening hood, doors and trunk. The hood opens to reveal a very finely detailed engine compartment with a plumbed and wired engine. Autoart's engines are usually very detailed anyway but here, I guess it's the color or something, but it just screams realism to me. There are markings all over the place and paint is fine and of the same quality as the exterior paint. Doors use tiny, almost unnoticeable hinges and finally come with side windows. I'm glad that Autoart finally reverted to side windows for its models, as Kyosho has been doing for a while now. It really augments the overall realism of the model. The trunk, though it opens, does not hold in its open position. This really bugs me because this is a common flaw on almost all Autoart models now. Why it has to be so, I don't know. The trunk is textured but not carpeted, but it is saddening that such a fine model gas to have such a pointless flaw. This could have been fixed easily. Anyone else have this problem?
But it is true that earlier AutoArt have these kind of problem that their hood and trunk does not hold just as the EVO VI.
