Superquick kits and replacement windows

Has anyone tried to cut out the solid windows of low relief Superquick buildings and replace with acetate ones. I'm thinking of constructing a block of the Regency shops and trying it out to break up the conformity of three kits next to each other. :o

Thickness of Peco platform tops

Does anyone happen to know the thckness of the Peco platform tops. I have aquired a large number of platform edges and I would like to use plasticard for the surface which I intend to scribe, hence the need for the thickness required so I can buy the right size. Thanks in advance :D
