Hello Fellow Hobbyists, I thought a heard through the grape vine that there is a source for the "Made in the USA" paper windows and doors. Can you please tell me where to find that source?

Thanks Howard I really appreciate your efforts. I started this project but someone told me that someone was already offering them so I quit working on those American made parts.

Pete, are you talking about the Dolly Toy Co Doors and Windows?

Howard and Lynn would know better on those, they've done a lot of Dollys, but I recreated a window and door for one house I had, but never got to far with it you're welcome to have the file for it though. I have about 4 of those houses in pretty bad shape, hoping to fix up at some point.

I'm planning on screening some of the gold and silver on the red and yellow paper at some point, probably wont be til early spring though. As far as I know, no one has made any of those yet.

Hope you've been well!
-Brian

Well I did have three paragraphs written on this response but evidently there's a time limit on how long you can stay logged in so everything disappeared. This time I'll keep it brief. Nice to hear from you Brian. Yes the Dolly co. Yes I'd love to see your file on the Dolly doors and Windows. Please remember when you try the tissue screening an awful lot of the windows and doors are yellow not always gold. I'm attaching a couple of photos of my new "Putz House Vault". It used to be my darkroom but the $55,000.00 billows camera wasn't even good enough for a boat anchor. The pictures show from start to where I am right now, unorganized but making headway. Remember this is only part of the collection! Hope to hear from you, Pete

Just three more shots. The house with the black coconut roof is my latest commission for a lady in California. She's in an area that never has snow but she wants her house to have lots of snow.
