What a great idea!! How did you cut the glass without it shattering on you?

Agus, it's a great idea, and the look is very accurate. Now, as we talked yesterday, get a second layer of glass and give some blurry effect.

Nice work!!

Hi.

I am using a regular glass cutter and having extreme care to avoid shattering. I have already destroyed two tempered glass screen protectors, after that waste, I could finally start cutting the small pieces I need. Eight for the windows, two for the windshields and the ones of the turret.


My idea is placing two layers of glass in each window, paint with diluted transparent green to generate multilayer bulletproof glass of real vehicles. After doing that, I will only need a hammer and a nail to get the effect of a bullet hit.
