What do other modelers use to glaze bridge windows? I have been searching for a very thin plastic type sheet with slight blue or grey tinting without success. I have preciously used sections of coloured plastic file sleeves, but have not been very happy with the results. On small windows this looks OK, but on larger rather false. Appreciate any suggestions.
There are acetate sheets available for modellers. Many of my earlier Aerokit models used this but over the years the UV light causes the acetate to turn yellow. I have some more recent supplies that could be acrylic. I have never seen any with tinting. From my own experience some plastic takes to spilt ink etc very well so you may be able to tint your own with a very weak Dylon type tint. Commercially photographic studios use acrylic plastic sheets which are UV safe. If you can source a supply that is thin enough for the scale of the model you are building this works well. I have used on my Sea Queen to good effect as it is the same thickness as the plywood frame.
Have a look on ebay for acrylic sheets, comes in different sizes and thickness, also do you have a company that does window tinting, this is a self adhesive film, ask for a few off cuts, they come in many tints so plenty of choice
