Niles Project ~ Window Shades

Super Detailing Continued. Adding Window Shades to #107

 Styrene? Brass? Nah, just simple card stock. Index card in this case. The windows are in groups of twos and threes, so that's how I grouped the shades. Cut them size and painted them Floquil Freight Car Brown for its nice reddish brown color.

Glued 'em in place with good 'ol Micro Kristal Kleer and we got it made-in-the-shade. Yes sir! Made-in-the-shade!



  1. Keep up the good work, glad to see the "updates" happening more frequently!

  2. Aw thanks Old Nick. I try to update every other week. But I recently read an article on what makes a good blog post and apparently, mine are too long. So maybe I'll do shorter but more frequent posts? Thanks for riding!


  3. I wouldn't listen to them, as in my opinion as they are talking about a different kind of blog; one that has a high noise to signal ratio.

    Nice work BTW.

    1. Oh well thank you Ms. Pollard. I do subscribe to the "a picture is worth a thousand words" philosophy. So I try to keep to a pic with a paragraph format. And minimize the noise!

      Good signal on your blog BTW!
