Bluejacket Portland porthole question

Recommended Posts

After approximately three months I'm about to finish the Bluejacket Portland hull. I have temporarily placed the

small portholes in the bow with a press fit. I would like to have glazing in them but have been unsuccessful 

in trying a few mediums. The inside ID is just 1/8" so acetate is not being considered. Have tried Envirotex 

and 5 minute epoxy with no success. Any ideas?

Very nice  to hear from you Nils and jhearl. After experimenting with several products, I

went with Gallery Glass. It's a viscous white liquid that looks like Elmer's glue. Wiped a

thin film across the back of the porthole and let it dry till it was crystal clear. Then installed

each one with a tiny drop of Canopy Glue for adhesive. Had to see it in the photo but it's

there. You can see a slight reflection in the first porthole.
