I think that this may well be one of the longest running models in the whole series. The first issue is lime green and is fairly scarce. After the first issued model there were some major casting changes to a small rear seat retaining lug that is just in front of the rear seat on the model sides. First issues had none,then a small bar was inserted. As usual the roof started out as fixed to body pins but then reverted to the generic seat pins. The lines in the battery box also changed to a finer design and there are some differences to the rear spring area.
