Greetings,
I nearing the build of the Eduard 1/48 ME 110E and the plans say that some PE needs to be glued to the canopy. Now plastic cement won't do it so I was wondering what you guys suggest as I think a super glue with cloud the canopy.
Thanks,
Chris

PVA glue works and has the bonus that it dries clear and can be taken off if you make a mistake without damaging the canopy.

+3 from me. I've successfully glued PE bits such as rear view mirrors to transparencies using PVA.

For very small (flat) parts I have used Klear with some success.

PVA is a good way to go but you can get away with a little carefully applied CA as long as the canopy is Klear coated first. I sometimes attach canopies using CA and, touch wood, it's all been OK so far.
