Very cool.  Why not these?

Silver is the back.  They come in various sizes.

 

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Ive got a TON of MV lenses in the stash. In the end, you may only want to use the colored ones anyway, as I have found after years the clear MV lenses turn yellow.

Depends upon the adhesive.  Use Future, not CA.

No, I mean the actual MV lenses themselves turn yellow.    I used white glue to install 3 of the clear MV lenses into the nose gear of my SU-30, and it worked awesome, and the glue dried crystal clear. 

At the time of installation, the MV Lenses themselves were also crystal clear too. FF 6 years to the 2017 US Nationals, and after being in my display case for years without me actually noticing, on the contest table at the NATs last year I finally noticed all 3 clear MV lenses were now all amber colored.

 

I haven't really noticed any color changes with the pre-colored red/green/amber MV lenses.

Odd.  I'll have to check my clear ones.  Thanks.

Strange for sure. I’m wondering what the actual clear MV lens is made of?
