"Well thought-out, well executed. Very nice. I like the flocking you used for the grass. It has some texture. I also like the underpainting of the water. The brown has a realistic look to it. The water is perfect. Well done!  "

Replacing windows

I want to replace the plastic "stained glass" windows in a Heartland Valley Village church.  The windows were easily removed.  Now I need some clear rigid plastic to make the new windows out of.  The windows it had were garish looking and not pleasing to me at all.  Can any of you offer suggestions as to where I can find this material and what it is called.Thank you.See More
