    just added a li to the tree , then changed the tyre for a scuffed up white wall .. looks better and the wite in the puddle i a test with krytal clear .. curious if that will look like water !

    thnx guys !
    its harder with  smaller surface i'm used to ake bigger dioramas
     
    put up the base for the tree ..and glued a extra lim to it ...
     

    and a nother lim , just used superglue to glue them on and that is now rok solid

    some smaller side branches

    later with a busted fence behind it and some barb wire on poles , some puddles (wet) and some misc. stuff i think it will come to life more

    abandoned '69 dodge charger dio
    i started on a small dio for my abandoned 69 charger i just build .. build thread is here >

    i started with superthin mfd wood as a base and glued on some cork plate this way >


    then i went outside and collected real dirt from my backyard , aplyed this to the cork and mdf with woodglue , real mey load of woodglue and smearing on the dirt by hand .. a bit like in the childhood days .. playing with matchbox or tonka cars in dirt 
    i knew thi works because i tried thi on my gasstation dio with a mall strip of dirt on the side

    and real materialss beat faking it .. the glue dryes ad leave no marks , nothing beats real dirt to replicate dirt right ? now on the pic it was just aplied i did the corc to beble to create puddles .. i want to make real watery puddles later , a small piece of fence with barb wire , going t make my own barb wire and rust it ..
    also some mud will be covered with dead vegetation .. i'm not going to buy anything for this so i will have to be creative .. i still have some moss like stuff and i have some dead mo in the garden i want to use

    idea for a dead tree .. also scavenged out of the garden ...

     
    now i have a abandoned dodge van .. i wanted to put them both on the base .. but it looked to staged ,, its quite a bit van and not a lot of room .. so the idea is when this is done to make a same size base plate for the van and put maybe a car shell beside that and that way i can build several base like this in the future and put them all together to make like a junkyard or foresty terrain with abandoned vehicles .. and still be able to put it in the cubbord ..
    on thi one i might do a small wonky shed ?? some loose parts here and there .. we will see no set plan

    whow !!! awsome idea and execution !! , love it ! will be looking out for more versions
    did they release the first hotwheels in several colors or in the colors like on the pic you posted ? wondered about that because your color are different from the pic ..
    oh and you have the real hotwheels ? would be cool t shoot pic with the small car beside the 1/25 that would really be cool

    its really not a hard thing , just carefully cribe the door/trunk etc line a bit deeper and sand the edges smooth again .. but if you dont feel comfortable just leave it
