- Jan 4, 2001Dear Jeff,
first of all, please call in at my home in Essen-Kettwig in Germany, if you are
able to make it to this part of the world!!! I do promise: We will have a great
time!! Within and outside of scale Z.
Why Z-enthusiasts are so fine people?? Easy answer: they are, at 1:220 scale,
finetuned by definition. So, they read between the lines and listen carefull.
Therefore they are able to respond very gentle!
