Harry Clark’s dedication to model railroad design shines through in the detail of his structures. Every building on his layout is scratch built. He has a knack for detail. For instance, if he can’t find a cast that fits a window he desires for a structure, he will scratch build the model railroad windows himself even though he hates doing it because it’s a tedious task.

How to Make Model Railroad Windows

In the final part of the 9-part Indian Creek Valley Railroad series, Harry demonstrates how to scratch build model railroad windows for structures. He takes us step-by-step through the process of creating the windows.

Harry isn’t afraid to scratch build for his layout if he can’t find the detail he wants. He scratch built much more than just the structures on the layout. He also scratch built some rolling stock and even attempted to scratch build an engine but it didn’t work out. Model railroading is all about experimentation and creativity. Don’t be afraid to test several techniques on your layout.
