If you have space then a bit of stripwood below the window to rest the glazing on is good. Use canopy glue to fix the glazing in place as you can remove any surplius. NEVER use standard cyano (superglue) as it clouds the transparency.

Good advice but I chose to show off my window frames by using invisible glazing  :kiss:  From a distance who would know  :-)

There are two [2] Seakadett builds on this French WEB site....one guy in Switzerland & one in France...


The method and build construction for the window glazing is absolutely brilliant.....[no pun intended]...... Derek
