    Well, I'm getting a Nemesis prime through the post in a few weeks, but alas, he lacks the red windows! So how would I go about making said windows red? I was thinking just some layers of red gloss (or gloss mixed with red ink or something, I use citadel acrylics (although I really should check out enamels)). Or maybe some red acetate or something with a sticky back that I can just apply? I'd like to pop those windows out, and cast my own red ones, but I have neither the skills nor the facilities to pull such a feat off.

    Get some Tamiya Clear Red, that would be the most simple solution.

    This. I use tamiya clear colors. I water them down a bit with water and always let them dry completely in between coats.

    I did the windows on my Powermaster using Tamiya clear blue.

    I have done this and it works great! Actually to a nemesis prime. Paint the inside though...it makes the front look cleaner.
