I read Andy's article and I did enjoy it, but I have a couple of points to address.  We did have "super glue" (cyanoacrylate) in the "good old days".  I was using it back in 1974- it was called "Krazy Glue".  We had tube glue and Tenax, too.  We did have airbrushes, too.  I got one for Christmas back in 1980- I learned about them in the years before that via Scale Modeler magazine.  And when it comes to making lenses for gauges, don't use five-minute epoxy.  It will turn yellow- I have learned from experience.  Use Testor's Cement for Clear Plastic instead- it's cheaper, less messy and won't turn yellow.

Or you can try slightly diluted Elmers glue,I find it works well too. Just my My 2 cents
