In Topic: door windows,,,working crank

Also, Ken Hamilton made that illustration for a Mercury custom he built at the time for SAE. I saw this fantastic model with the working windows and all at a show back in 1987. He posts on this board, and he was the inspiration for me to tackle working windows.

It would be interesting to see if he still has the model, and if the windows still work after 25 years! :D


I just ran across this thread. For the record, the thread has never jammed or broken and the mechanism has worked perfectly for 25 years.
It's nowhere near as hi-tech as Bill's incredible window unit, but it got the job done.
Thanks for the kind words, Bill..!

Thanks very much for all the kind words, guys. I haven't started anything else yet 'cause there are a couple
other irons in the fire: I've been invited to have a show of dioramas at an honest-to-goodness Art Gallery in
Philadelphia this year over the month of September, and the Arcade will be one of the pieces on exhibit.
I'll post more info later in the summer, but the opening reception is Friday evening, September 7.
If you're in the area, you're all invited to the opening!

Bravo! The whole package fits together perfectly, from the VW to the split-level base to the fantastic trees.
You've got a good eye for balance and composition and your building techniques make it all work.
Great job.

Thanks, Marc. You can probably order Gatorboard on-line, but i don't know what kind of shipping there
would be to New Zealand. Fomecore might work for what you're doing, but you'll be hooked on Gatorboard
if you get your hands on some!
Thanks again for the compliment.
