Installing clear parts without fogging: How!


Recommended Posts

One way to stop glue fogging on clear parts is by coating them with Novus 1 spray. It protects the surface and also makes it easier to clean later. I spray the whole clear sprue at once, then use a clean soft cloth to buff it. Easy, inexpensive, it works :)

Pacer Formula 560 Canopy Glue (posh PVA). It's intended for R/C modellers. Has a decent amount of "stick" right off the bat, but the trick is to wait 2-3 minutes and squidge your parts in one last time as it thickens. Cleans up with water when wet, dries completely clear and is very strong after 24 hours, and if you don't like what you've done, even after it's dry, just soak it in water for a few hours and it will soften and come off again. Fills gaps, takes paint.... what's not to like?

best,

M.

I picked up some of Revell's new Contacta Clear. I have used it to glue in the windows in my last couple of builds and I'm really pleased with the results.

I just use Testors clear parts glue, comes in a black bottle. I use it because it is made to glue clear parts, pretty simple theory and doesn't tax the 72 yo brain cells.
