Sloppy Jalopy Austin Armoured Car (the parts)

Here's the next vehicle on the assembly line, the Austin armoured car from Sloppy Jalopy:

As you can see the main body is in resin with the balance being white metal parts. The resin casting isn't as detailed as white metal or the resin vehicles I have from Force of Arms for example. In addition, there are no preformed holes for the various parts like the mudguards, something the Force of Arms vehicles did have. Whilst an assembly guide was provided it isn't entirely obvious where some of the parts should be fixed (or how given the lack of holes) and the side guard and step have only a small flat area for gluing which may not make for a strong bond.

I report back once I have assembled it.
