Hi everyone, well look what I picked up today in the mail!
Rail Scale Miniatures "Whispering Falls" has finally arrived!
This kit has so much stuff in it that RSM owner Dario Le Donne had to use 2 boxes to accommodate all of the materials needed to build this kit.
Here are the boxes that this kit comes in.

Here is the information packed instruction manual and the "Micro Scale" Floquil colour chart- cross reference chart that come with this kit.

A look inside of the kit's manual shows how Dario at RSM walks you through each step.
Providing good photos of what you are working on and how it should look.

First I dug into the larger box to see this kits contents.
I could not fit everything into one shot so I took a few.
This kit has a lot of wood in it, for that board on board construction of the barn.

The kit's castings, CD with colour images showing this kit from different perspectives.
Different styles of roofing materials used throughout this kit, and other detailing components.

To be continued...

Mike, I totally agree with you, laser cutting has made our modeling worlds so much easier!
Thanks for your encouraging words, and for your post.

Michael Hohn Posted - 08/29/2019 : 12:19:01 PM

I think one of the advantages of laser kits is the way they lock together so that with a modicum of care the builder ends up with a square, solid assembly. The approach here looks particularly well thought out.

Good job.

Hi everyone, well I have a mini update here today regarding the large silo in this kit.
You begin the construction of this silo by building this support framework.
Using the 3/8" dowel which is 6 7/8" inches long and 6 laser cut discs designed to fit over the dowel, and also held in place by 4 additional 12x12 stripwood pieces.
So that it all looks like this when glued together.

You then need to cover this silo framework with 2 x 8 stripwood, gluing them on one at time.
This process takes awhile, but take your time doing it making certain each piece is on straight and tight to each other.
I would make one end of the 2 x 8 flush with the bottom of the silo framework and let the rest extend past the top of the framework.
When it was dry I would use rail nippers to cut off the extra wood sticking out past the silo framework.

Until I finally got the entire silo framework covered with the 2 x 8 stripwood.
I had to slightly modify the last piece of 2 x 8 stripwood to fit into the last opening to finish this off.

The instructions tell us to now paint this silo with "Tamiya" XF-20 Medium grey paint.
Brushing in the same direction as the boards.

This is how my silo came out looking after it's paint job.

That's all I have for now, I will continue this when I have more to show you.

You sure doing and outstanding job Greg. That chicken coop really was a nice addition to the scene.

Jerry, thanks for your post, and for the kind words in it!

Ensign Posted - 08/08/2019 : 9:54:08 PM
Jim, Pete & Kevin, thanks for your posts!

Jim, the hen weigh is just across the road from the farm.

Dave, Bill & Mike, thanks for your thoughts and for your positive comments.

Dave, if it was really my choice I would have free range chickens.

Bill, I figured that you'd have some foul related words for me.

Mike, I'm riding the same hay wagon that you are, when it comes to farm structure placement.
I'm just glad that my structure placement, is looking logical to you.

Michael Hohn Posted - 08/08/2019 : 4:03:28 PM

Looks like you’ve been cooped up doing some quality modeling.

There’s probably a logic to farm arrangement but it would take more knowledge than I have. Nevertheless it looks logical to me to have the vehicle shed close to the barn like you’ve done.

Bill Gill Posted - 08/08/2019 : 3:53:27 PM
Greg, With the arrows and measurements it looks like you figured out eggsactly where to locate the chicken coop.
Now all you have to do is install a Henway
Guff Posted - 08/08/2019 : 3:21:03 PM
Very nice!
The building placement seems logical with the chicken coop within easy walking distance for the cook.

Looks good Greg, the coop and its screened frame adds a nice touch to the kit.

What is the thickness of the provided white cardstock substrate?

Thanks, Carl.

It's 1/32" in thickness.
