Hints & Tips No. 2453
Making Industrial Glass
By Phil Sutters
 
Plasterers' mesh tape can be used for industrial or small domestic window glazing bars. If you want to keep them fairly crisp, stretch the tape across behind the window frame and then install the glazing sheet behind that. If you want a more utilitarian look or perhaps need to glaze a larger expanse, like a north-light window, where the mesh might sag, it can be attached to the 'glass' with Johnson's Kleer or some other non-yellowing varnish.

Hints & Tips No. 2454
Sky - Matte or Satin?
By Several Modellers
Make sure your paint is Flat. You see no shine in the sky and being a vertical surface, dust is not common on most layout backdrops. (Robert Bell)
Keep the blue paint absolutely flat, I do not think anything else would look right and reflection would destroy the illusion of distance. (Kevin Payne)
By all means use the same blue where sky meets water  on a coastal scene but use a satin finish on the water part to simulate the reflective nature of water and suggest a horizon (Noel Edmonds)

Hints & Tips No. 2455
Too Much Detail ?
By Kevin Beasley
When I started putting interiors in buildings, I didn't know much of what I was doing.  I got some very nice interiors, but I never show them here because all I can see is window frames.  Even in HO, typical windows are very tiny.  Some illuminated interiors look OK, but photographing just doesn't work.  So, I limit my interiors to a few larger windows and use curtains and shades to mask the interiors.
I have one or two structures with almost dollhouse-like interiors with carpets, wallpaper, staircases and Fezziwig furniture, but they can't be seen.  Part of doing interiors is learning what can't be seen and not wasting time and money on it.
