Hi all,
i am Mike an oldie but newbie. I have a few requests and questions to ask.Was keen modeller 60 years ago without giving away my age. Just bought a part but nearly finished build and asking advice. As you are all aware , parts for these are hard to come by. It has apart out of the screen in the black part of it just above the wipers. I have the piece. What can i use to try and repair this without causing any fogging. I dont know if we can post picture on here but have one. Hope not a silly question but cannot find new screen. Also, i need to buy, beg, steal or borrow the instructions and if someone reads this please contact me. I anyone needs parts i have full body and about 20 other parts i can maybe dispose of. I see you have a separate place to post this and will do when i decide what i need. thankyou

Hi Mike,

To glue the part back to the glass, you could either try PVA white glue or Humbrol Clearfix

Yes you can post pictures on here.

I hope that some of the other members may offer you some other advice or the missing instructions

I hope that you don't mind, I re-posted your picture below

Microsol Krystal Klear is also very good for gluing clear parts. Easy to wipe excess off while it's still wet. A damp cotton bud will take thin dry residue off too.

Which instructions do you need ?
Cheers
