Red Star 1/48 scale King Air B200. Needs windows. Hard to get and very expensive kit to be drilling on... 11/32 holes and two teardrop shaped. Scary fun. Success-had to clean a couple of tear-out spots with CA glue, but now in the heat booth while the clear resin drys. First time attempting clear resin windows... let you know how it turns out.



Cheers

My hat's off to you Pat...

I love King Air's, but not enought to build that kit! Hahahhaaaa

I look forward to seeing you put your magic touch to it!

and I'd love to know how the resin windows go. It looks like you've got a great start - the openings look nice and true. Please let us know the details when they're done?!

Great work!

I'm stumped on a project of my own at the moment and looking for a solution along those lines, though I hasten to add the subject isn't a Beech. I need to make oval windows in a circular cross-section fuselage and I've considered many options from smash forming clear plastic on the as yet untouched fuselage and cutting holes and windows to fit, or leaving them empty, or the very basic oval decal option.

Keeping an eye on this project, many thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards

presented an amazing A-380 in 144th. He made the windows by pouring clear resin in the window holes and sanding the whloe thing level. Certainly did work for him!

Happy modeling,

Matthias
