Thanks for the picture of the original, Jos. I liked your picture of the model, and looking on the internet taught quite a few points I was unaware of about sequoias.

Great autumn tree, Jos. At 22", must be an impressive one in real life.

Thanks Frederic!
And ...oooops...you're right !!!
so NOT 22 inches but "only" 15 inches of course when comparing with the sailorman/captain!!!( about 35 cm)22 inches is more than 1/2 a meter!! eek!
btw in my neighbourhood there are some beachtrees that are over 45 meters/150 feet high!!...growing, down hill, in a grove protected by the trees on the top of the hills.( only 25 meters/85 feet)...

Hi Jos. I just got back from my little tour, and have a far better appreciation of Scotch Pine trees, which seemed to be everywhere in Switzerland.
