I'm building a zoo in scale 1/32. I'm building the enclosures all seperately, later making a diorama of them. Here the first i build:

Beuatiful (old) zoo, I like it but I only think that he need more girds and by the bear I think a digging would be a little bit besser, but that it's dificoul to do.
Please do not be angry with me

Oh, I think it is spectacular, for a zoo diorama, the vintage Zoo style is much better and I am sure these plastic animals won't feel bad in so small places. Very Happy
Just keep your work once it is looking phenomenal and here is an example where figures at a certain scale can work much better in this kind of projects. bounce cheers

Thanks for all the nice comments! Indeed: i try to build an old-style, nostalgic Zoo.
@ Goatherder: no, these are all the enclosures i have build up untill now. At this moment i'm working on a enclosure for a Crane: i have a beautifull Crane (Elastolin) which really needs an enclosure badly. When i have finished it, i will post photo's. But: the building takes time, i'm not very fast at it...

Thanks everyone!!
@ Goatherder: the base is made of white platematerial which is used for insulating buildings (i'm sorry my English is bad, so some names i dont know in English): this is perfect for carving the pond. Then i have painted the pond with special paint (latexpaint): if you use other paint, the artificial water (which drys in 48 hours!) will leak through the base!!

The trees are made of parts of rel plants which i let dry completely. After that, i spray them with spray-glue. When taht is dry, i spray the trees witch green paint. The plants which are standing in the water are made of rope, which i also painted. The house of the Crane is also made of rope (a kind of rope which is used of farms for haying!): it is supposed to resembel a buidling made of read/thatch (shese 2 words are suggested by Google Translation).

The house of the Capibara is supposed to resembel 1 made of metal: it is paper, which i painted green. The roof is miniature crimp (??), which is sold here in Holland for miniature-buidlings. The gate of the enclosures is supposed to be a tipical gate made of chestnut: this is often used in Holland in gardens as a gate. The straw inside of the building of the Capibara is made of the same rope i used for the walls of the Cranehouse.

Next project is a tropical greenhouse, i bought 2 Britains Greenhouses (Floral Garden) to make 1 bigger greenhouse out of it. I intend to fill it with a pond for Crocodiles and tropical plants (planning on making a bananatree among other plants): all in 1:32 off course. BUT: i wont be able to work on it for the next month, because next Friday i will be leaving for Brasil, to visit my girlfriend who lives there (in the city Curitiba).

Wonderful work mreyder.

Love the parrots, the bear enclosure and everything else!

All of these are delightful mini settings.

the little trees and bushes are actual parts of plants which i dried, then sprayed with spray-glue and after drying painted green (with spray-paint). The trees for example are the dried flowers of a plant: Astilbe. After flowering i let them dry on the plant, then cut them, and first let them dry inside the house for 2 weeks (to prevent moulding).

The black animal is supposed to be a Binturong, made it myself, based on a fox from VEB-Plaho. I like Binturongs very much and they seem not to exist in 1/32. The porcupines and scunk are Schleich Mini's, which i painted. On the pic the avary doesn;t seem to be standing upright, but this is because i held the camare wrong  Embarassed
