Guide Review - Scale Model Windows and Doors From Grandt Line

Grandt line have a wide range of small scale building details which allow a wide assortment of building styles. Their plastic parts are clearly molded with good detail and little flash to clean up. The detail of their casting allows for several traditional paint schemes to be used.

The architectural section of their website lists parts by type, as well as the outside dimensions and the opening required. In the window section, mention is made of coordinating windows to allow you to use matching windows of different designs

Although the majority of their building parts are based on North American examples, a wide variety of architectural styles are possible. A large number of detailed gable ends allows for the creation of very decorative buildings. The range also includes doors and windows designed for railway coaches, and the types of industrial buildings seen at railyards.

These are excellent parts for smaller scale construction, with varied depths in some ranges to allow use in sheet stryene or thinner luan plywood buildigns.
