I had less than stellar results using ACC to attach clear window material.
After some time a white haze developed around the edge of the windows that was impossible to remove.
Switched to Testors clear cement and everything has been good.

Wow Tom, this is really coming along.
I really like how it is coming out, good colors too.
This is a SWEET build!
I use a water based canopy glue to glue up my windows.
This is something that airplane modelers use to attach... wait for it... canopies.
I first used CA on windows in the 1980s and about cried when it wrecked a prized models "glass".
I also found that if I use it anywhere inside a model (again through a terrible experience)
that it would craze my glass in its off gassing as it set.
I ended up not using it in any interior applications after that.
Just a heads up.

It's been about 24 hours since I glued them in and so far so good.
I'm thinking maybe the fact that I sprayed the backside of the glass with Dullcoat maybe saved the day.
Or maybe it just hid the damage.
I did try using Plastruct's Bondene which is a clear solvent for plastic but it wouldn't weld with the plastic that the kit is made of.
The body for the doodlebug had to be built with ACC.
Anyway, I appreciate all the input.
Still working on the headlight.
I think it looks goofy so I plan to start over with something built from scratch.
