Miniature Lamp Lenses

Just a quick follow up from my earlier post about the lenses for my model Land Rover Discovery.

Still drying
I'm using Micro Kristal Clear. In the bottle it looks like white glue. It takes over a day for the small lenses to dry clear and over 3 days and counting for the larger 4mm diameter spot lamp lenses.


I know it works because I have already done one layer which has dried as clear as glass but the blob sunk so I did not get the shape I wanted.

The second layer has retained the dome shape and the smaller side light lenses are clear.


In the above photo the indicator and side light lenses are only about 1mm in diameter!
