While I was at a Montana-style estate auction (in someone’s backyard) I accidentally bought a bucket of crap for $2.00 when I thought I was only buying a T-square. Instead of throwing away the bucket, I brought it home and searched through it. This bucket was full of the most random construction stuff. It had some weird foam tubing, bolts, tails, etc., etc. It also had probably 100 of these small white vent-type plastic parts about 7 inches long and 3 inches wide. I have no idea what they are for exactly but I knew they could definitely come in handy for my Mordheim Buildings. I just hadn’t figured out what I could use them for… until now!
This picture shows the plastic vent with one edge cut off and sliced into nice window sized pieces, and the other side of the plastic vent left in place. They end up being kind of thick borders, but I think after painting, it will look perfect. Here’s a progress shot I took while cutting a hole for this window. It was really quite simple; I just marked the hole, and cut it out with a razor blade, leaving a small ledge around the edged to keep the window grating from sinking too far into the wall.
My next step will be adding a window frame around the window.
