*Modeler's Note: The wall is built of basswood with scale model basswood trim. I also used
basswood trim and scrap pieces to built the window. I used some recycled hard plastic
packaging for the glass, cutting a piece to cover the rear of the window. I cut jagged holes in it
for each broken pane, and then sprayed it with dullcote to dirty it up and give it some contrast.
I then took a piece of canvas and spray-painted it black a few times. I used a pencil to draw
rain on it, using a small carpenter's square so that all the drops would be parallel. After that,
I painted some of the rain silver. I glued it to the back of the window and it looked great !
I also replaced the opaque flask in his hand with a clear one. That felt like major surgery!
