First a scale drawing is drawn up, then the window is tacked over this with masking tape loops to stop it shifting about. Pencils are used as spacers and a metal rule as a guide. I use a bow pen to draw in the frame. In this case I started with a grey/cream colour and then filled in the dark brown afterwards.
The result is only flat but at a distance does a good job or copying the original inspiration, as pictured on this photo of Blamau on the Ybbstalbahn.

I also returned home to find a book I had ordered arrived - one of the Bahn im Bild series (think similar to the Middleton Press titles) on the Ybbstalbahn. Full of great photos and since the Ybbs was one of the first narrow gauge lines dieselised there are plenty of diesel shots - although not quite as much freight as I'd hoped.
