Windows.

Good afternoon.

Some of you maybe aware of this. I needed to put some windows in my recently made train shed and did not know what to use! The other day I laminated a notice and as it happened it did not fill the pouch. Looking at the area not containing the paper it struck me it would make good "window glass" So I laminated a pouch, without paper, and low and behold window glass. It is not too thick and is clear.

Hope this is of use?

I take it you are referring to a model shed.

Yes. It is double engine shed built from scratch using picture mountboard. New to this model lark, but learning a lot and making mistakes so at the moment it is a steep learning curve.

The laminate pouches are a good idea.

I've never used them as they are too delicate, but when clearing out my mother-in-laws garage a few years ago, I found two packs of glass slides, that I assume were to be used with a microscope. They are glass, and about 00 gauge window sized. So if you wanted to be absolutely authentic with a model building you could have real glass windows. Oh! needless to say they are now in my model box - they didn't get thrown away :lol:

I just use the clear plastic trays that many food stuffs come in, sticks fine with stupid glue.
