Model Windows


Following on from the previous attempt to cut a model window for DovedaleModels I wondered if it would be possible to make the window frames by cutting them out of sticky labels. The goal is to cut the sticky part but not the coating underneath. With a bit of tweaking it was actually surprisingly easy. This is probably the only good thing about a manual power dial, you can adjust the power, and therefore cut depth, while the item is still cutting. A simple scalpel blade under one edge and the whole window frame lifted clean out of the label.
Apologies for using a customs label but it was the only label I could find tonight big enough to cut this from.
