    I'm looking for a fixed six pane window about three ft wide and 4 ft tall with a frame, I've tried grandt line, tichy,detail assoc., and campbells and cant find anything close does anyone have another source for me to look at. I also looked at the Walthers website and came up empty. A laser cut would be great.Thanks Pat

    Pat,
    SS Ltd also has some windows, at least in HO (are you still doing N or did you make the switch?)

    Belg, what about printing (or photocopying) your frames onto clear acetate sheets? I've read somewhere that the thickness of the toner is actually closer to prototype measurements than any castings.

    Thanks for the suggestions folks still have not found what need but if all else fails I will print them on the acetate. Thanks to mhdishere and Val for the idea.

    window

    I thought I was the only one on this early. I borrowed the window from Union Station/Walthers.

    How many do you need?

    Hi Pat,

    a little bit smaller (I think it is about 9x13 mm) you can get from Auhagen in their WINDOWS Kits. They have one bigger size as well, I will check for you the size.

    Philip these structures I'm working on are being built in HO so the window is right. I would love to be able to make my own mold do you have a tutorial on this process? Thanks Pat

    Hi my Friend


    I try to link their WEB sites with those windows, they have quite a lot (but the structure of the WEB is strange for linking. Let me try.

    Article Numbers are 48647, 48648 , 48650 and 48550

    If this does not work, go to

    Selbstbaumaterial
    and Ausstattung, you will find them.

    krokodil I really like the set thats off to the right but it gives no dimensions for the windows and doors do you know what they are or could you ask the company in an email please. I need the grill of the exterior(do not include the glue flange in the measurement) to be about 4 HO scale feet high no more.Thanks alot Pat

    Hi Pat

    I am sure you will get the extra size of those windows from them as well. They speek quite well English.

    I have a few of them, here are the dimensions.

    The light braun with 6 glass segments has the dimensions of 7x13 mm

    The darker braun one with 8 segments is 9x18 mm, similar is the size of the white 3 segment windows.

    Always it is the frame size (opening in the wall).

    FWIW

    3.5mm = 1 HO foot

    1 mm = approx. 3.5 HO inches (the width of an HO 2x4)

    So a 3'x4' window opening would be 10.5x14mm :thumb:
