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.

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.
