Cracked front panel

I bought a Bailey Ranger, 1999, it has some cracking on front panel. Think it is just surface stuff but there are about 6 different areas with this star shaped cracking. Is this likely to be expensive to have repaired? Can anybody advise me?

Cheap = fill it with a flexible waterproof sealant.....the sooner you do it the less likely the risk of water penetration and damp.....check every so often...reseal as and when.

Expensive = having the panel changed. .... check every so often for cracks appearing (as they probably will from the panels shifting whilst cornering etc).
