Not odd at all. And I've been trying to figure out what I could buy that would be in a nice thin plastic box. I do need some fresh rosemary, so there ya go! Thanks!Odd question: do you buy fresh herbs from your grocery store? They usually come in a clear, clam-shell like container. I've used the material for windows in the past.
Thanks. I was surprised how well it turned out.Wow I’ve tried that before and it looked no where near as good, two thumbs up!
Glued down the wires at lunch today, and after work I soldered on some leads and a plug. Drilled a hole in the styrene base I'm mounting this to and then went ahead and glued down most of the interior details.
I also cut the roof panels out of some black styrene and hit the underside with primer. I'll let that dry for a while and then paint the underside edges. I think a grey to look like weathered wood.
I need to decide on a roof material. I might just go with roll shingles because it's easy, but I don't know yet. I have a couple other buildings with corrugated sheet metal roofing, so I think something different than that. We'll see.
I have some .015" clear styrene now, the issue is really cutting them to fit and making them look good from both sides. I might knock out some of them later and replace them with KristalKlear (assuming they still make that.)for windows I have always heard that micro scope cover glass worked pretty well. I have yet to try them . They're cheap like 2-3 cents a piece and .17mm , .007" thick.
Also 1000 grit sandpaper makes a decent asphalt shingle or roll roofing or black thick paper for tar paper roof.
