    It is only natural to want the glass to be close to scale thickness but trust me, guys, It doesn't matter. The slides are very clear and in all the building that I have used them you can not tell how thick the glass is. If anyone doubts this I will post a few pictures of interiors with windows made with of glass slides

    To cut the slides I use an ordinary glass cutting tool and I use Krazy glue to mount them.

    Nice progress. Cutting all that glass could be a real pane.

    Very nice work, and I see you are OCD like me with all the thing's nicely in those clear bin's behind the structure in the picture :)

    Very nice so far. You are absolutely right about the windows. Excellent results. Now can't wait to see the sign.

    This I want to see! I well remember such signs, with their paint and flashing bulbs, the neon as well. They were great art, with an individual touch- unlike these days...

    Miller Engineering has a couple of animated billboard and window signs for bowling alleys. The top one on this page might work for you https://www.microstru.com/7081.html

    … a sophisticated Alley Cats lounge customer (from one of my favorite LP covers, by Hampton Hawes). :)

    Man is this bringing back memories of midnight bowling when I was young. Can't wait to see the finished bowling alley :) I have a Miller Engineering sign for City Power and love it. I think you will like your bowling alley one too, let us know?
