Been working on this for the last 3 days now and this is what I put together. Hope you all approve. If you look closely you'll see some bird eggs inside the right side headlight. The wheel lugs or bolts are on the ground next to the tireless axle.

Didn't these things come from the factory with rust? :lol:

Seriously though, great job!

Bravo! The whole package fits together perfectly, from the VW to the split-level base to the fantastic trees.
You've got a good eye for balance and composition and your building techniques make it all work.
Great job.

Extraordinary! I'm impressed by the level of detail; right down to the ruber window gaskets. The only thing missing is a carpet of pine needles on the roof.
I'd be interested to know how you made the trees. They're some of the most realistic that I've seen.
