    I agree with Boatshed,
    My two 'go tos' are Deluxe Materials Canopy Glue and Glue 'n Glaze.
    Grip well, dry crystal clear, don't fog clear plastic and don't stink of cyanide gas ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ˜
    Canopy Glue is good for sticking to painted / varnished surfaces.
    Glue N Glaze is better for sticking to metal.

    Please remember that CA can be removed( CA remover/acetone) where as epoxy is relatively permanent. (It can be removed with heat, if your part survives.)

    Hi Toradog, l have a tube of the flexible ca l never thought about using a two part epoxy, never considered it to be flexible enough to do this kind of stick job. well lets see what happens.
    I,ll take on any suggestions, this is one dog who,s not too old to learn.
    stay safe chaps.

    I'll shoot one, as soon as I straighten it up a tad. My better half says I'm a slob, and I always thought that she was referring to my building habits.....
    Rubber reinforced CA is probably best for joints that might be under stress, but CA as a whole has little shear strength. Also, I have found that ruffing up the surfaces to be bond especially metal surfaces, make a huge difference. Another approach is to tack pieces into place with CA and then reinforce with a very fine bead or layer of epoxy.

    cheers boatshed the frame and windscreen have stuck together but im not sure for how long, the metal frame of the windscreen has not a great deal flat edge to stick to the screen.
    still lets see how it goes.

    I cannot remember the name of it, but Hobbies at Ravenningham in Norfolk sell specific glue for model window glazing. I have just looked it up It's called Glue & Glaze. It's made by Deluxe Materials. ยฃ7.95 a small bottle.
