|the windscreen is attached along the fuselage with a very light touch of CYA adhesive (medium) applied with a pin. But first I use the windscreen paper pattern to make a masking tape strip that holds the sides and bottom edges of the 'screen in place. I take two layers of tape off the roll, paint it white to match the fuselage, trace the pattern onto it and cut it out - then just peel off the top layer. and there is the 'moulding' to hold the windscreen down. I then seal it with a 50-50 mix of white glue and water applied with a brush|

|Good idea and explanation. Thanks|
|I know most folks here have their own methods and tricks but for the casual browser or someone who finds themselves on this website because of a passing interest in scale models or aviation, and really for that reason alone I guess I sometimes write unsolicited commentary on my methods here and there. I guess I probably talk too much at social gatherings too lol |

|I try to use the space provided for initial comments to tell what I'm doing and use the comments & discussion space to answer any questions or clarify a point.|
|that's probably the best method - too often I get rolling on an area of the build and forget to take pictures of how I might have solved a problem or modified something. Afterwards I think, I wish I would have documented that with a photo...
Like when I stretched these floats..not one pic. |
