Hello All,

I am looking for the best sources for windows, doors, swinging doors, etc. to build scratch-built Old West Buildings with in 28mm. Any thoughts?

You might consider paper terrain. Not much has changed (visually, at least) in doors, windows, and frames in the last hundred years. There are a lot of paper kits out there, even some free ones to get you started.

Quick search turned up this one:

Knuckleduster uesd to sell at least doors. I have some in a stage station I built from balsa dowels. I have some windows in the building that I think I got from him, but could be wrong.

Go to the model railroad seller Walthers.

walthers.com

Go to their advanced search engine and type in what you are looking for and click the scale button to O scale (very close to 28mm scale). They have quite a few architectural details.

Warbases.co.uk do superb packs of windows and doors plus excellent sheets of pre-cut shingles. I've just used these on my Old West scratch builds and they work a treat.
