This is a one ounce bottle of Microscale Industries Micro Kristal Klear. If there was ever a modeler’s secret, this is it. Micro Kristal Klear can do so many things that can make a big difference in the appearance of your models. First, Micro Kristal Klear is a liquid that can be used to form very real looking small windows up to about 1/4 in size. It is also an adhesive for mounting clear plastic parts, windows, etc. on models. It can be used to make lenses, both clear and colored, with the addition at a little food coloring. What really makes a remarkable difference in your models is the simple fact that the clear parts can be joined to the painted parts with a completely clear adhesive. This means that you do not have to mask around the clear parts, something that is difficult to achieve satisfactory results with. Moreover, the sills, which are painted, can be seen through the clear Micro Kristal Klear for the most realistic looking windows possible on a model.
What the pros like best is that it works quickly and easily and stays clear. It cleans up with water while wet and is waterproof when dry. It changes from a milky white to clear as it dries. As if that were not enough, if you need a super strong and flexible adhesive for wood, plastic, paper or most combinations of dissimilar materials, Micro Kristal Klear fill the bill as an adhesive, it’s great!
When producing small windows, simply dip a toothpick into the thick liquid and apply a little all around the edges. Holding the toothpick in as flat a position as possible to the opening, draw it across, from one side of the opening to the other. This creates a “bubble” of film that fills the opening, which dries into a very thin and clear window of scale thickness that is also strong and flexible. When installing larger clear parts, paint the model first, then apply a small amount of Micro Kristal Klear along the edges to be joined, install the clear parts and let dry.
