There is this product carried by a company called Novus...they sell rubbing compounds and polishes for models. They also carry a product that will remove glue from windows with out leaving any marks such as other products will. I can't remember the exact name of it, but just go to a good hobby store and most carry the Novus line of products.

Just got my new Scale Auto today and there is an articel in it on repairing glass. Start with 600 grit wet dry sandpaper ( use it wet ) then go to 2000 grit paper, follow it with Novus ( or Meguires ) Plastic Polish, and then Novus Plastic cleaner. It should look like new after that

This is why I only use regular Elmers school glue for gluing windows. If their is any mess up it cleans up easy with warm water.

try acetone , ive use it before and it worked
Damn dude never get acetone any where near your model, thats just askin for big trouble, one drop on a painted part and you are now into repainting. IMO its best not to use harsh solvents on plastic parts.
