Thanks.  Tacky glue is available at Michael's, I suspect.  I'll get some.

I use Aleene's Tacky Glue also.  But use it sparringly.  You'll need to use tape or some other way of holding your canopy in place while the glue dries.  It will dry clear and works well.  Ian was right with his suggestion of Aleene's but there is another glue called canopy glue made by Sig Manufacturing.  Oddly enought it's called Sigs Canopy Glue. I don't think you'll find Aleene's and Sigs don't really grab but they are tackier than most other glues.

OK, thanks!  What I'm using is from the same maker but definately NOT tacky, taking several hours to grab.

Aleene's tacky glue was recommended a while ago. I have used it on small models successfully. It is inexpensive and you can find it at Wally World.

What do you folks use for canopy glue?  I can order the stuff that says, "canopy glue," but the people whom I usually buy supplies from don't carry it.  I'm sure there are alternatives.

I've been using fabric glue lately since that's what the local craft store has.  Any thoughts/suggestions?
