Windows in Resin Bodies - After reading the old post .
Hi , Y'all !
Yup , I thought I'd pipe in with something I've done .Y'all are familiar with AMT's 51 Chevy Cars and Pick-Ups right ? Well think , now about that back window .With the kit plastic ( Glass ) it looks like the stuff would be a scale six inches deep in the body .
Well , This is what I do , this has worked on my resin cars too . I take a number 15 blade and very gently make a channel .Here's how .Taking a divider , I draw a line inside the window , about a sixteenth inch from the edge .
I then take the number 15 blade and gently scrape the area to create a channel .I keep scraping till I get it thin enough to be in scale . Then I take masking tape and stick it into the channel all the way around and using a pencil ,draw a line around it.
Then I take the tape off and stick it to the clear .010 plastic . Take a pair of sharp scisors and cut through the tape and clear plastic . Peel off the tape right away .There , you have your glass .
This can be done on the windshield , side glass and rear glass as well . It takes patience but the result in very well worth it .Give it a try and remember , be patient ! You won't be sorry . O.C.G.
