Sometimes I have to steal a few moments to do little jobs. In this case, glazing the cab windows of the Barclay.
I use Micro Krystal Clear for jobs like this. It’s quick, clean and easy to use. Pick some up on a cocktail stick and whirl it around inside the window frame to form a skin. Leave it to dry, preferably horizontally and you have a nicely glazed window. The setting time is usually a few hours – or if your bottle is going off as mine it – about 2 days for a fully dry pane.
These windows were glazed over 3 days in a few minutes before leaving for work. Not a bad idea as you don’t want to handle the model while the glazing drys. By the time I get back, it’s dry enough to do the other side.
