Same here Dan. These later DM models had what I consider “perfected” castings and shut lines
Most out diecasts if you really give a good look, the sides of them look like bondo machines! Waves to the panels and not quite smooth. Some are better then others, but the majority of our diecasts are like this. I did notice that they took the time and effort to make sure the roof, trunk and hood castings were smooth and crisp 95% of the time. But the later models..... the olds, Chevy fleetline and afew others amazed me! They looked more like plastic models with smooth panels and minimal gaps.
