Default Do you prefer models with or without .......

opening features?

Here the discussion is based on collector type models not toy cars from Matchbox, Hot Wheels et al.

Cheers Chris

I prefer without, mainly due to owning a few vehicles with hoods that don't quite shut all the way, and a few vehicles (M2/Castline) with misaligned doors.

For small scale models such as 1/64, i like opening features as long as they are done well. However, it has been my experience that a small model looks better with no opening features.

Overall, I prefer accurate appearance over operational features. I've rarely seen a 1:64 with opening doors,hood,etc.. that has proportionate shut lines. Make mine curbside, thanx.
Nostalgia is history removed of the burdensome weight of reality.
