I bought an Eldar Falcon on e-bay and everything was fine but the Canopies had been glued down, and some superglue had gotten inside the canopy. Anyway long story short I have got the canopies off but in a rush of blood to the head I scratched off the superglue inside the canopy, does anyone have any fixes or suggestions to fix the scratches. The scratches are basically grazes not deep cuts.
Pics of the Falcon so far are in my WIP thread (link in sig.) on the last page if you want to see but there are no shots of the damaged canopy.
I will be honest I don't hold out much hope but thought I would ask, if necessary I will get a new Canopy but don't know where to get one from.
Thanks in advance
May be a longshot but what about plastic window polish for convertibles and caravans? May be a bit expensive just for one job (I've got a bottle for my car which cost me around £7).
Works wonders on my rear view window for the frosting sort of look it gets from dust scratches etc, not sure if it could affect the model plastic.

Good Suggestion - this works on mobile phones too (not iphones/touchscreens, because they're usually glass).
Another thing that can often reduce "frosting" on clear plastic is to dip/paint the offending piece into/with 'Ardcoat/gloss varnish - this particular works when you've dulled it up with a coat of purity seal when spraying a model upon completion. Gloss varnish will usually reverse the "misting" caused by the matt varnish too - especially on metallics if you've gotten too close and your gold's all gone "creamy"
Another thing that might work is those sticks/files used to polish nails. Just make sure to use as fine grade as possible or else there will obviously be scratches... (Method known to work on plastic model aircraft canopies)
