I am not too sure, maybe you could measure them and compare?

The Infantry Support Jeep Windscreen will definitely NOT fit on the Palitoy Action Man Duck which is Blue with a Grey Plastic Windscreen which is rigid and does not fold down.

However I am wondering if you are actually asking if the ISJ Windscreen will transfer to the Cherilea Seep, often erroneously called a DUKW, which is green and roughly the same size as a jeep?

Both Cherilea and Palitoy had different types of windscreens on their vehicles.

There is no guarantee that the windscreens will be compatible even if your vehicles are from the same brand.

The green DUKW in the second post is named the "amphibious jeep" (made by Cherilea) -and looks much more like the true type DUKW-.

Actually the "Green DUKW" as you call it is correctly named the "amphibious jeep" (aka Seep) by Cherilea and is a fairly accurate representation of what it claims to be a Seep/Amphibious Jeep the Palitoy DUKW apart from the scale/size is fairly accurate representation of a DUKW Amphibious Lorry and I can speak from first hand experience in that as I have actually driven one! The big difference and distinguisher is the twin rear axles.

Hope this isn't out of place. I thought I might give you an idea to make your own windscreen.

There are some excellent clear plastic items available these days to make your own windscreens. As a welder I use the clear plastic used to cover welding lenses in the welding helmet to make all sorts of items, these make excellent windscreens. Screen protectors from iphones etc are also great to use for gas mask eye as you can cut them easily.

Hope it helps.

Actually not. You do not seem to understand,so I'll explain. You 're writing about the specific difference of the windscreens of both vehicles. I wrote that both Palitoy and Cherilea use different kind of windscreens on their vehicels (so generally speaking ).
