Ty for taking the time to present this very interesting video.

It was a pleasure to watch your techniques . Curious that you use canopy glue on the PE and liqid cement on the rear glass. How do you keep it from frosting the glass ?

Thanks Jay. 

I use canopy glue with PE when I don't need much trenght and I anticipate longer adjustment time. 

The liquid cemet Mr. Cement S works great with clear plastic, you just need to take care of few things.

As You can see the parts are masked and that helps. Also Cement S is thinner than the regular plastic cement and flows nicely into the joints, You just have to be carefull not to spill it/flood on the clear part. It also evaporates very quickly. As the vapors are the most likely to cause issues I hold the detail so that the vapors can go away without making contact with the plastic. 

I hope that I have expressed myself clearly. English is not may native language :)

Best regards
