    My wife has been saving me the clear plastic lids from take-out sushi boxes. The plastic looks fine to me, but I don't know exactly what its made out of. Will it work for windows or will I some how run into troubles?

    There smaller sections, but I've used those clear plastic protectors that come in the MTL rolling stock boxes.

    I have used slide covers, used for laboratory slides. They are made of glass and very thin, and don't get affected by super glue like plastic sheet does. You can get them in various sizes on ebay pretty cheap and they are great for n scale. What could better model glass than real glass?

    That sounds like a great idea, @jfarr1! Maybe not for every window, but only on windows where you want people to see a particular interior scene.
