Hi Group,

One way to add some finishing touches to an assembled kit of a house/shop/office/factory is to do some window dressing i e add some curtains or other window details.

All the manufacturers of these kits seem to have two or three standard sheets with curtain prints and other window details that are included in the kits. The result is a repitition of the window detail in different buildings in the same model town.

I am sure that the manufacturers can expand their range of sheets with window details at a minimal cost and that it would be well received by the modellers. Why can they not make up a set of say 10 A4 sheets with different window details and include that in their catalogues? Is it a matter of not realising the need or just ignorance?

Any ideas on alternative sources for window curtains and details?

Kind regards.

Johan

Curtains can be made from an assortment of different papers and even masking tape if used correctly. Magazine articles and adverts especially from the glossies can make quite good shop window displays. I would assume that the same source could easily be used for the inside of warehouses and factories etc.

Check out the self adhesive stuff that you can use to make greetings cards from. Probably available from your local craft shop.
