I’m building a model for work (I will be sharing it and the process here soon!) Basically we are making a building facade and need to have windows to see through. I’m going to be doing some testing but basically we’ve come up with a few solutions.
Cut the walls out of 1/8" plywood and glue in 1/8" acrylic pieces for the windows. Any suggestions on how to do this without making a mess? we are worried that gluing in the acrylic pieces will get messy and result in glue splotches all over the acrylic.
Make a sandwich of 1/8" plywood, 1/8" acrylic, and 1/8" plywood. that way just cutting out the wood reveals the acrylic. glue in areas not seen.
Make a sandwich of wood veneer, 1/4" acrylic, and wood veneer. much like option 2 but the veneer would be self adhesive and would have less of a shadow box effect on the windows.
Thoughts? I feel that all have pro and cons. Anyone have any suggestions?
