Wonderful map and I remember You shown here some photos of Your zoo before, yes? Beautiful project :)

You are not the only one who build miniature zoo, I know at least 4 other people with their work in progress on similar projects. One of them is member of this forum also but he rarely writes here. I think this kind of projects are fantastic but require a lot of space, sometimes also lot of money or/and skills (when You need to do buildings and enclosures) and also time. That's why, probably, not many people is doing this :) However if You could share more pics of Your zoo it would surely be pleasure to see and maybe You will inspire more collectors to try? Very Happy

I used to make a whole farm life diorama, I still have all the parts, maybe I will remake it. I have tons of wooden fences too, I've never tried to make a zoo, I don't have many fake plants and stuff. You're not alone! cheers I used to love to set up all of my animals on out living room floor and leave it up for days on end and just look at it. Very Happy

thanks again for all your good vibes

Its true I do have loft space to bulid it. but i spend hardly any money on it. its made out of junk that i find like drift wood, old wood,computer packing and of course plastic plants. paint and glue and paper mache and a few screws. Also off cuts from a fabric store which are free. the actual animals cost the money . thats why we started making our own.




And everything can be packed into this case and a few boxes
