Can somebody tell me what is good way to imitate the glass on the window. I have made the frame of the window (Al pipe with inner diameter 6 mm). Is there some plastic mass to drop it in the frame?

For me, any rigid transparent packaging will do. I usually paint the back side in black (not the conventional, but unrealistic blue, brrr!). If the window requires glass in lead, I glue black coloured curtain fabric diagonally on the front, with PVA glue.

Happy modeling

Hi, Jean-Pierre! I used FIMO EFFECT (white translucent) to immitate the window glass. It is not transparent, I will see how it will look like.
