Description

The window consists of a large, full-dollhouse-person-height plastic panel, divided into three vertical panels by raised frame uprights, that can serve as a set of patio windows (when used on the ground floor) or as a glass wall (when used on an upper floor). Protruding tabs top and bottom allow the panel to be built into a dollhouse wall.

Perhaps surprisingly, the raised moulded frames aren't painted, and the whole piece is transparent.

Two of these panels are used as the front of the Triang Bungalow A rebuild.
