    Jeez, what a drag that sounds like. But that's partly why PayPal takes a percentage of your sales, so they can offer protections to both buyers and sellers. Good to hear it worked out.

    On these, I would like to see if anyone knows the tartan pattern and the regimental pattern. I've been thru the normal resources to try to find it.

    The tartan is familiar, but the red and yellow stripes go one way only and the ones with similar colors always are in some checked pattern as far as I can see.

    The tie is from Atkinsons.

    I may use the Hallucination part. Who would I pick up with Tornato?

    I tend to use description words not for search optimization but for a peak of interest from followers or lurkers.

    If you have a following, your item will be seen. Catch the attention, and persuade a buyers mindset with your description. Tasmanian Devil Tornado [​IMG]

    btw, i spelt it wrong the first go around lol.

    ^^Could be but I can't find anything that is identical to it. The largest set of tartans were based on blackwatch.

    It's almost the MacEwen tartan, but to be accurate, every other red or yellow line would alternate.

    Doesn't really matter. just bugs me when I can't find something.

    Self-tipped for one, definitely. Helical, infinity, sine wave come to my mind.
