Well, you could start by disassembling a die-cast car that has working hinges, or you could do a search for tutorials on how to create them. I did both and found many more tutorials on how to do other things too.

Get hold of a copy of the December SA. Awesome story by Ilkka Klemetti, building an AMT Impala. He does a wicked job on hinged doors (and spring loaded bonnet).

What I meant was you could get one of the metal cars with opening doors, trunk, ect. and take it apart to see how those hinges work. You could then build something similar using the metal car as a reference. Guess I should've explained this part, then it would've been helpful, lol.

How realistic do you want to be? Most diecast hinges I've seen don't even try to be accurate – the're just u-shaped arms that pivot the door away from the body.
