These Battlefront models were a lot simpler to assemble than the Artillery platoon. The AT guns and AMR armored half tracks were straight forward. The infantry AT gunners needed to have their bases clipped to fit them on the medium size FoW bases. Some cleanup of figures was needed.
The difference in BF French infantry and Peter Pig infantry is noticeable for quality. The PP models seem more well proportioned, cleaner mold lines and smaller helmets. Unless you put the models next to each other you wont really notice the difference in play.
I clean my models in soapy water, dry them and then undercoat with white spray primer (Halfords).
