Hello all. I have done a search for any other threads in which my question may have been asked; either I am not using the correct search logic or this has never been addressed.
I know several people have used the Tom's Model Works PE windows in their build. May I ask your thoughts on how you installed them? What did you use for adhesive? I have in mind to use Krystal Kleer. I used it to adhere the newsprint "canvas" covers to my lifeboats and hatches and it seems to hold really well. I am presuming that it will do the same for my windows, with the added benefit that it will dry clear and give my windows their "panes". Does anyone have thoughts on the pros and cons of this? Art? Morten? Anyone else who had used the PE windows? I would appreciate your input.
Thanks for a great resource in this forum!
Regards, Gary Ayers

If we lose five compartments, that's that extra 6,000 tons of buoyancy gone! And that will mean...Titanic will sink!" - Inside The Titanic

Dear Sir, Thank you for your respose, which i just read. May i ask, would this glue you mentioned also work for securing PE doors to bulkheads, railings to mountings, etc? Or for those should I just use CA glue?

I would suggest Gator's Grip acrylic hobby glue for all your PE, and only use CA when the parts are to small to relly get a hold on. IE: Gator's Grip takes longer to dry than CA, hence you need to hold it for a while (or use clamps or something) while it dries. For railings you could use small amounts of CA (dots) on certain places along the railing to place it correctly, and afterwards use Gator's Grip acrylic hobby glue along the railing to secure it.
