Good looking model overall. The figures look good on the sprues, but hey appear to have significant (for 1/48) seam lines along the shoulders and sides of the head.

Not sure how well it shows in the pictures, but it was mostly on the Z-sprue, i.e. the back-seat passengers. The two in the front, who was on the same A-sprue as parts of the vehicle did not have the same issue.

I didn't mention it in the text, but the waist joint is also a bit different, with a butt-joint for the four in the back, while driver/front-passenger has a raised area, two help alignment.

It makes me think the four in the rear are a downscaled version of an older design.
