I have good luck using Bondic to create aircraft lights.

Bondic is liquid plastic that hardens under an included UV LED. You can see the ergonomic handle, light, and carrying case in the photo to the right. While you can use it to bond canopies to fuselages and attach other fiddly parts, I found it particularly good for creating wingtip lights.

The glue can be built up in stages, or you can apply a small dab to form a tiny bubble — a very realistic light formation. If you color the glue beforehand, you’ll have the making of navigation lights. Once satisfied, set the design in five seconds under the LED.

Another reason to like it is that it doesn’t craze or mist clear parts like super glue can on clear parts.
