Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)

World War II Project - Return to Normandy - P107/U304(f) Halftrack - Windscreen

The next issue with Warlord's P107 is the windscreen which really doesn't fit and has a tendency to fall through into the body. What I did was take some strips of sheet styrene and glued this in behind the windscreen so it had something to rest on. The second issue is the hinges on the windscreen don't match up between the top of the hood and the windscreen. I'm just going to ignore this particular issue figuring that most people are not likely to notice after its been painted up and weathered.

Slipping in these little pieces of strip styrene turned out to be trickier than expected. There just isn't much space for my big fingers, but the concept is pretty straight forward. Once the windscreens were in place I filled the gaps with Squadron Green and smoothed everything out.

After that I pinned and glued in place the MG shield, but didn't mount the MG and added the head lights. I glued the heads to the drivers and left those loose as well for painting. 

That's what it takes to get the Warlord Games UNIC P107 up to snuff for the gaming table. I was pretty unhappy with this kit and how poorly it went together considering how expensive it is.
