On Jan 18, DWB asked about the windows in the North Light Engine Shed I had built & I apologize for not replying at that time.
Yes, transparency film but make sure you get the correct one for your printer.
The first one I got from local newsagency was for laser printers @ 50c each & for bubble jet, they cost 4 times as much but at least the ink does not run off them. I found this out after I had printed two on the first film & wondered why my fingers, etc got black.
They do come up OK as you would have seen from the other pix by wiggy25.
No pix from me as I do not have a digital camera (so far I have not really had the need for one).

Forgot to point that out, make sure the transparency film is the correct type for your printer, I get mine from staples in the UK, make sure you check the front as both packs look the same but 1 is for Canon's and loads of other printers, the other is for HP inkjets (this has to have the white strip on the infeed edge, it prints on the rough side!)

I've added some brickwork lintels to the model now, forgot all about that thanks for pointing it out, when you've been sat making them for hours you tend to miss details like that!
