Hi Guys
Just returned to the hobby after a long time away from it.
I need some help with regards glueing canopys onto aircraft,i used to use a glue which dried clear which was perfect for the tricky bits on 1/72 helicopters/aircraft etc, i.e no glue smudges on the canopy.
For the life of me i cant remeber what it was called, it came in a small white plastic bottle, if any members know of it or can recommend something just as good i would really appreciate your help
Many thanks
Brian

I always use Testors Clear parts cement. There may be others.

I use Testors Clear Parts cement and sometimes I just use Future...depends on the situation. Testors comes in a clearish/white-ish container...maybe that's what you are thinking of?

Cheers,

PVA glue is what you are thinking of I believe, or a named brand of it. Also welcome to the network.
