Greg,
This will be a show stopper of a build for sure. I will be following along to get some great tips.

Very nice, reminiscent of a barn from my childhood.

Hay, Greg, I missed the start of this thread, but know it'll be a great one to follow.
The footprint looks like half the size of my whole layout. This is going to be fun!

Rich, Philip & Bill, thanks for your posts and for your interest in this build.

Bill, the base that Dario used for this kit measures 22" x 32" inches.
I'm certain you could make it a much smaller farm scene if needed.
I've run out of storage space, so I might consider something smaller.

I'll be following along, Greg.

22 by 32 inches might sound big, but in farm terms it is only .85 of an acre!

Cheers, Mark.

Dave & Mark, always a pleasure for me to have you guys follow along!

Mark, that .85 of an acre is still considered a hobby farm.

Greg, This is a very interesting build. What are the foot print of the two building? The house looks like it's about 3"x4".

Greg - reminds me of a quote from crocodile Dundee when Sue asks Mick "how big is Mick's place?" He replies "Oh, its not that big - you could walk across it in 3 or 4 days. Anything out here less than 10,000 acres is considered a hobby farm".

Cheers, Mark.

Bob, thanks for your post & for your interest.
I quickly took some measurement from the templates.
The farmhouse is 5" inches long and 3 1/2" inches wide.
The Barn is 9" inches long by 7 2/8" inches wide.

Mark, that sounds like something that Crocodile Dundee would say.
It would be amazing to own that much land!
I would need a herd of sheep to go with it.

Greg,

Interesting looking kit, and certainly a lot of thought and effort was put into the development of it. I'm not much of a kit modeler and am a little puzzled by the 'sounds' that are part of the kit. Are these, Animal sounds? Machinery sounds? Whispers? Did they come on a DVD, a sound decoder, or something else? I'm sure you will do a beautiful job with the kit, as you always do, and I'll tag along watching it progress.

Greg,

Jim has asked a good question. A chorus of farm sounds could be udderly fantastic.

Mike
