Upon gluing on a clear piece to my model, the glue ran a bit onto my model, its a mix of acetone and methyl ethyl ketone. Any tips to remove this from plastic? Or will it not affect it too much during painting?

Thanks!

Did it cause any damage to the surface of the clear parts or the surrounding plastic? If not, then after it's dry just polish out the marks it left with some fine grade sandpaper.

If it did cause damage, then you may need to do a little more extensive surgery to repair it.
