I’ve repainted it and added a mess of accessories/trees/plants and have some more stuff on the way to add/swap out.
I’m probably going to paint the trees and plants to make them look less plastic-y.
Holy smokes, this is absolutely phenomenal and the first thing I went to do was search for this playset online. Alas, couldn't find one with the stairs, as you pointed out.
But, after seeing pictures of the original toy, your spectacular paint job as transformed this item from a simple child's toy into a nearly photo-realistic diorama. It's just fantastic! Bravo!!! I wish I had your skills (and a playset with the stairs) to attempt something similar, it would be the crown jewel and centerpiece of any Indy collection.
edited to add: And your atmosphere photography here adds so much! This is just terrific all around!
