How deep are they on the Smith Box?

Actually, this pertains to the "depth" of the panes and the depth of the glass...

Right, so...

The dimensions on Mr. Rudloff's plans show the panes to be 3/4" thick.  But, is that the depth of the window frame from the front to back?  In other words it may be 3/4" when viewed from the front, but as it sits in the door frame, is it 1"?  1.5"?  (3/4" x 3/4" or 3/4" x 1," 3/4" x 1.5"?)  I would think 3/4" square would suffice, but was wondering if anyone made theirs thicker.

Then, the next question is, how far back is the glass from the leading edge of the window frame?  1/4"?

Your answer may be found in the other thread you posted in here: http://tardisbuilders.com/index.php?topic=2312.msg56574#msg56574  Also, it sounds like you are using my old plans.  My current plans have the 2005 window trim at 3/8". However it's 1/2" on the Series 5-7 boxes and on the new Series 8 box, maybe 5/8" now.

Bill,

Yes, Dave (my CAD man/friend/fellow Whovian) and I are using your plans for the Eccleston/Tennant box and are modifying them as needed.
