Really like that Ali, interested what scale you have built this to, whatever scale it is it is impressive.

Look forward to more details of this build, like how you did the plastic bags of rubbish and to to seeing more of your work

Welcome, Ali! I have been watching your projects on Facebook. Very nice work! I can't imagine the difficulty you must have getting supplies.

Welcome to the forum, Ali!

It will be very interesting for me to see how you do your modeling with only a few materials. Hope to see more!

Cheers,
