Park place diorama

As the car can't fit nicely on a wooden shelf, I decided to make a mini diorama. This is, let's say, 80% complete. I must make so curbs and mybe some tire marks. I little of weathering would also give more realistic look.
I used plastic grass - the cheapest one I could get. This diorama is more for testing purpose. I plan to do a whole park yard. At every parking space, there will be one car
