Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
Somehow I’ve been convinced that true modellers glaze windows with real glass. I’m not sure if it’s really better; the passenger car has plastic windows, and they look fine to me. However, there is no doubting that when you tell anyone – even a non-modeller – that the windows are glazed with glass, they are duly impressed.
So, after a day of searching the house from top to bottom for my 25-year old box of microscope slide covers, I sat down to glaze some windows. Now, the fact that the box is 25 years old should tell you something about the frequency at which I cut glass windows. So, here are some pointers for future me, some of which I remembered, and others I didn’t.
I feel that red window frames are a bit of a cliché, and on #10, I painted the window frames green. However, #622 is a passenger engine – you can tell by the lining on the cab and the tender – and so I’ve painted the window frames to match the passenger cars.
