WOW!! I just got the Ryefield Panther with the interior. The clear plastic parts look like polished glass ! Which leads me to my question : How do I glue things to it without fogging or blurs on the plastic ????
I know that Testors makes a clear drying glue for airplane canopies.
But I don't think that it has the strength needed to hold hull parts together. Does it ?

Thanks for any help and have a good weekend !

Saw a TV commercial for Gorilla Glue for clear products (Lucite?).
Anybody use this before ?

I have not, but I have used BSI vaporless ca glue on canopies and have had no problems with fogging. I imagine the Gorilla glue would be along the same lines. BSI is often sold with a modified label for local stores. Hobbytown USA carried it.

Thanks Russ for the tip on BSI and where to find it. Looks like a trip to Hobbytown USA for me.
