Hi guys

other than buying clear see through plastic dial lenses for a cockpit. Anyone any ideas what else I can use? I.e is there a glue that dries clear and could do the job or something like that??

 

Any advice gratefully received

 

Ade

Hi Ade . You could try clear epoxy laminating resin . It dries clear and is slightly flexible . Or you could try Devcon 30 min epoxy. this sets clear . If you warm it slightly ,when mixed, it will become thinner.all you need is a mould or somthing to pour it into.

Just had an idea for the mould for your bezels. The plastic sheets that pills are packed in ,  come in all different sizes . Pour a drip or two into some of these allow to set and you have you lenses . If you wanted a brass bezel fitted, put a thin cut of brass tube ito the mould before adding the resin . :D

Let us know how you get on.
