Jerry - thanks for sharing the "jig"...Nice work I might add.
The removable wall would be a great "PLUS" to your model,
and personally, I think you should go with it. JMO.....
You have worked too hard to hide the machines.....

Nice jigs Jerry.
I know what you mean about the glass.
I gave up on it and went back to just using plastic.
You can have the glass that I have next time I see you.


As you think, so will you be.

Building the jig looks as complicated as constructing the window. Where can we find how to build the jig? that's what is missing on the Fotiki post and here too....Thanks for any help on this....Windows are tough, no doubt about it...

Morning everyone

Tom asked me if I could do a picture of the jig I'm using for my windows so here it is.

Basically I copied what Ken Hamilton did.

http://public.fotki.com/khamilton/models/model_how-to/how_to_build_window/










I used 1x10 & 1x4 O-Scale for the casings first picture.

For the sashes I'm using 1x4 O-Scale bottom/glass/top second picture.

When I do the next step the mullions I'll use 1x2 HO Scale.

I need to order more glass it isn't as easy as it looks.

Comments always welcome.

Here is a sample of how the siding will look. Just starting to peel and the dust & grime is starting to settle on the boards.
Even thought the boards are whiter in real life.

I'm just not in to have the building all peeling like nobody cared for all the machines that were inside.

So comments are welcome as usual.

Siding looks great!! A very appropriate degree of weathering.
