Louis & Karl, thanks for the tip, I'll give it a try on the next one.
When I can finally go to a open hobby shop once again, to purchase some of this Pacer Formula 560 Canopy glue.

Greg this video is using the same product as Canopy glue I suggested, if this is easer for you to get, it is the same thing.
See this video for how it works and its usage. If you go straight to time frame 3:19 it talks about the glazing technique I explained. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RmBRZsZ7to

Yes they can, yet you make it look so deceptively simple. Nice, clean work. Looks great.



Bill, thanks for your comments!

I find the easiest way to apply glazing (white glue, canopy glue or gallery glass) is to use a "rounded" popsicle stick or wider ice cream stick to apply the glue. Draw it across the window. I can usually get a thin film in place.

John, thanks for the popsicle stick idea, I'll give that one a try as well.
