Recommended Posts

Hi,

This will be be 2nd build for this GB, and oldie from Airfix, my frind Mr B passed this kit to me with a condition that I must build it, I do lost the side clear window parts along the way , I will see what is the best way to replace those windows later

Work startd on sealing the gaps on the doors, there are some sink marks that need to be deal with too...

Very cool choice!

Are the windows small enough to fill with Micro crystal clear ?

Nice choice for your next build. I second RKic's recommendation for Crystal Klear for the missing windows. It will fill up to about 1/4".

Thanks guys,

I do not have access to Micro Crystal Klear , So I do it the hard way, I cut some clear plastic from a bottle, then fill the gaps with super glue.

If ya have a decent hardware store that sells loctite products... See if ya can find GO2 Glue..... I have used with great success..... Worked real well on my A-4. Apply as you would Crystal Clear.
