      Do any of our decal/mask producers make properly sized 1:72 cabin window masks for the Boeing 707? I've found some that merely replicate the Heller portholes, which aren't correct. A TWA shop manual I have lists the 707-131 windows at nominally 9.5x13 inches, which in 1:72 isn't egregiously far off the now ubiquitious Boeing window glazing of 10x14. I'd love to find some that account for unpainted frames (or at least some clear/non-'3D' decals that give the frames only as well).

      This is for a project that will replace the Heller window line with clear plastic and masked/overpainted windows, so I'd like the proportions to be correct if at all possible, both for the clear areas as well as the frames.

      I've got the vector art if you can get the stencils cut. I have a Silhouette Cameo, but it's not set up and I don't have any masking material to put in it.
