Thank you very much for great tips!
I'm getting a few unpainted vehicles myself, the information is priceless.

Nice cars, Webbo!!

Hi Dats

The black one is a Duster and the other is a Barracuda ('71 model).

Personally, I prefer to paint the windows of solid vehicles black. Looking at vehicles in the real life, the interiors look very dark and I think that grey or lighter seems to accentuate the windows somewhat.
best wishes

I am new to the forum, so I hate to ask. . . . Can you point me to a great thread on casting your own vehicles?

Do the techniques for windows on road vehicles also work for the cab windows on diesel locomotives ? Some of the recent releases make it very difficult to get a driver in.

What about a combination of the suggestions in this thread? Use pencil for the optimal color and put a coat of Micro krystal klear over it to try to create a reflective glass effect.
