From here:

They look like this:



Really nice, especially for z scale.  The "diameter" of the fronds is about the size of a dime.  More importantly, they look indistinguishable from real ones when viewed as a silhouette against the sun.

A great find. I plan to dig around the site for N scale appropriate items. Are there photos of your Z scale layout on here or you saving it for a big reveal?

Thanks.  Robert Ray told me about these and he has a great Tiki Bar scene that uses a whole bunch of them.

No photos of the layout, yet.

I was modeling the LAJ a few years ago.
