Laserglaze Sulzers

14 Sep

I have been experimenting with Laserglaze replacement windows for my class 25s. The original glazing had become discoloured and frosted from detailing & weathering and was clearly not up to scratch. Having trimming and fitted the first cab on D7550, I found my supply of humbrol clearfix  to have dried up. A search for suitable glue led me to Deluxe Materials. Recommended on forums is glue n glaze but there using also Roket Odourless in the range so I tried both.

Having now had 24 hours to dry, I think the Roket Odourless wins (Used on 5263). It is very thin so can be applied by capillary action around he edges and is totally invisible. The glue n glaze is fairly thick and I could get it run around ins thin bead so it has dried slightly visible, it is perfectly clear but visible as a distortion on the Lazerglaze and. I am pretty pleased with the outcome though and have a few more locos to now treat.
