the attention to detail is spot on

and there’s always something to spot wherever you look like this car shop of movie cars

through to natural blending in with created (real trees in the background in the distance)

and a traffic disaster

the sense of humour even extends to the toilet sign (which was full sized – actually the sign and toilets were full sized)
