A few years ago I picked up the cow in a tub at a yard sale.
Looking at billboards on the web I was hit with an idea to use the cow in a tub for a billboard scene.
Whimsical build but it was fun!
1:29 scale











Thanks for looking,
David

Wow Guys,
I'm glad you liked the billboard. (Nice pun Dallas)
The lattice work is 60lb cardstock sliced into strips with a Fisker cutter and laid out on a drawing. Used masking tape,sticky side up,to hold first rows of diagonals in place will gluing cross pieces.
Thanks all for the nice replies.
Dave

Holy cow! Dallas beat me to a pun!
Dave, I love this little scene, but steers don't have utters!

Thanks, Greg Glad you liked it!
It's the Steer Co. however only a cow was available, so I used my artistic license.
I didn't like the Cow Co. name on the billboard.
