Hi people, Just wondering, has Anyone ever used the Brassmasters windowframes for the scalescenes kits at all?. :hmm


Just wondered if they were worth buying and are they Really noticeable once you have used them?..
If anyone can help or has any experience of using them, Cheers :pathead

Hi, Derbs,

Have a look here. I've never used them because they cost money and I'm allergic to spending the stuff, but here is John Wiffen's take on the subject. To me they look rather tasty.  [scroll down a bit...]

Did you notice John Wiffen's modelling? Talk about slap-dash shoddy work just thrown together willy-nilly........:mutley



He's probably an Australian with too high an opinion of himself, eh? All Fosters Lager and clumsy fingers, cor.....:oops::oops:


I'm glad he isn't a YMR member, I'd tell him a thing or two.....probably only had electricity for a couple of years out there in the out-back, probably worse than Ongar....



Seriously, he does some good stuff, doesn't he.

Ages ago i posted a pic of a fishermans cottage ,taken from a jig saw puzzle picture ,with that i used scale link brass windows ,i don't know if Bob or Sols magic can find the pics . the windows are very good easy to work with and can be glazed with klear or similar. Will try to take a pic of the stencil i have left .one day i will be able to post pics on here:roll: they were about £9 a throw but plenty on the stencil.

... and me the bridge in Random Ashlar stone, albeit in N.  The buttresses are 3cm too short for what I'm doing but I think I can stretch them a bit. :thumbs

He, Mr Scalescenes is not too bad, he has given me permission to post any of his images of his products from his site into YMR ( not the ones others have built & posted to John for the site though).
