I think that you are comparing two different things. Check this link.
It shows some of the other offerings by the ebay seller. She sells
completed small dioramas. That is the reason for the high price.
Paper Creek makes kits. The finished product will be determined by
the limits in the abilities of the modeler. It will also be
determined by the setting in which it is placed.
I can see where the ebay seller's dioramas will enhance some layouts
and in others it may stand out as "too good" making the rest of the
layout builder's scenery as mediocre. In a model railroad setting
these dioramas need a little weathering.
Some one, like me, can take a perfectly good kit and end up with a
perfectly horrendous model.
I like the ebay sellers offerings but would never buy one. I could
never make it blend into a realistic Mojave Desert scenery.
Maybe the ebay seller can offer a set of three buildings only and sell
them with out the scenery. She can then set a proper price and sell
to the Z scale market. Creating the diorama must be labor intensive.
She can still sell the dioramas on ebay. They could be used to make
a great Z scale Christmas train diorama.
That N scale scene with the people would be outstanding in Z.
