You need some masking tape to protect the window, and then rub away with an old cotton T shirt and some car wax, the more aggressive the better. It will remove it, but try not to press too hard on the edge as it will remove the paint there first!

Using superglue was a very bad move for this repair. You needed Microscale Kristal Klear and hold it down overnight with some Tamiya masking tape.
Lucky this is the only damage because if any of the superglue got on the clear parts it's game over!

Nice model BTW
Thanks for your help! I knew when I started that it was not a good idea. I had informed by some local shops, but they couldn't help me. Probably because I haven't bought the model there.
  Which car wax do you prefer?

Something thick like Autoglym Super Resin Wax should do the trick.

I really, really wish I'd known about this years ago.  It really does work, on both diecast and resin, not on plastic though  :rolleyes:
As far as what wax to use, just get whatever is cheapest.  I used a $7 Meguiar's and some dried out Armor All cleaning wipes.
