Afternoon all.

A step in the Tamiya 32nd scale Phantom cockpit requires the setting of a clear lens into a depression:



...what glue would best perform here, since the clear piece is going to show anything on its other side? I thought of maybe setting it in place with some Testor's Glosscoat?

PVA would also work. Testors make a canopy glue, or there's Microscale Krystal Klear. You wont need much.

I normally just run a bit of KM Weld in but have also used canopy glue in the past.
