    This model was done late 1960 using Northeastern Scale Models scribed sheathing, and stripwood. The doublehung window in the office works (even now).

    Can you tell us briefly what you did to get the window to work?

    Sumpter, thats a beautiful model! Your attention to detail is, as always, top notch.

    If it's too old for you, I can give it a good home ... :) :) :) .

    I simply built the window frame, and shashes the same way as the prototype would have been built. Friction holds the sashes where they are, so no sash weights are needed. Yeah, the window is slightly thicker than scale.

    Aside from my new modules, there isn't any better place I could think of for that building than the home you could provide. There's only two small problems; As old as the building is, it wouldn't survive shipping, and would have to be hand carried. And. There is already a home site for it on the new module set.
    Best I can do right now, is go pour a glass of scotch, and drink to your health.
