Re: [z_scale] Re: A photo for the cover page
I bought a set of your fir trees off of eBay January
of 2000 and for what I got, it definitely was a
fortune. I was not impressed at all with colored or
painted (brown) toothpicks or dowels with some glue
applied to it and either dipped or sprinkled some
green lichen material to it. That is not a tree!
I agree very much with David about Architrees,
especially since I just received a shipment of his
trees and was not that wild about most of his trees.
But Zthek on the other hand, I am impressed with the
detail and uniqueness, in short the realizm of his
trees. I have not been disappointed by him at all.
Now Zthek has quality!
I bet those fir trees were done in less than 10
