Well done Andrew. Great project, reminds me of the old Scientific American, 'amateur scientist' projects, e.g. build your own Wilson Cloud Chamber.
What is the scintillator material used, and where to get it?

@kiwironnie The material is Bicron BC408 and the same eBay vendor also sells the optical coupling compound: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Bicron-BC408-Plastic-Scintillator-5x5x1-cm-for-CosmicWatch-Muon-Detector-Project/263355405917
