My first attempt at building Totoro didn't satisfy me, particularly when I realized I'd forgotten the tail. So, I attempted a second version, this time a bit larger and closer to my own scale. It took a bit for me to get satisfied with this one, even after I finished with it. In the end this one gives me a much better feel for the character (and the tail is not missing). My wife liked both, but being me, this is the one I've opted to keep in my display collection.
