I was tweaking the chest doors on this guy today, because they don't quite close all the way and have chipped the bumper chrome a bit where the windshield screws hit it. (Just remove that screw, shave down the mounting lug for that corner of the windshield, and glue it back in place.)

I realized that his wipers are separate parts, not glued in place. The pivot point turns freely, and the other end of the wipers are held in place through interference: a groove in the bottom edge of the windshield and a tab on the underside of the wipers that fit into a slot in the windshield frame.

Long story short, just shave down those tabs and slots and whatnot, and the wipers can be posed, thusly:

Just thought it was a fun touch.
948 TFs and counting. (They're like rabbits, those killer rabbits from Monty Python!)

Brilliant! Makes you wonder why they left them immobile in the first place.
