    Default Windows Help

    I have built my Ford Capri 1/10 to the 2nd primer coat stage. I was only going to have actual windows front and back, I wasn't going to bother with side windows. However, having seen the vehicles on this site I feel I would be cheating if I didn't put them in but I need advice on how best to carefully cut them out of an already built and shaped vehicle. I have made the vehicle out of 2,3 and 5mm styrene.

    Look forward to receiving any advice.

    Some pictures would be helpful in deducing what would be best.

    This is a link to my album on google+ showing several images of my model Ford Capri. I don't quite understand how to upload images on this forum; Sorry, Technophobe! :)

    thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Yikes.

    That's a bit of a pickle. Great body by the way, looks like a very fun ride.

    I guess I'd start by cutting out a template for the size of windows you want, then you a scribing tool to score the shape into the body, then, ultra carefully use a Dremel to remove the existing material, using your scribe lines as a guide.
