If you're modeling a European urban scene, you're likely to have a building with windows involved. Unlike many window styles in the US, European windows are typically dual pane with enough space between to place plants and other decor. In addition, the inner and outer panes are hinged to open.
Plusmodel has released three different styles of European windows. In this set, the window frames are simple rectangular shapes with overhead skylights. Three complete sets of windows are included with 24 parts in the set, three frames w/12 doors, three skylight frames w/three doors, and three sheets of clear acetate (not imaged) for the windows themselves.
This is a beautifully engineered detail that will add significant reality to the diorama or vignette you're building. Check them out!

My sincere thanks to Plus Model for this review sample!
