Modeling Notes: Scaling

This page covers various ways to scale things to the correct proportions for S-scale modeling.

How Do I Scale a Drawing or Diagram to S-scale?

To size a drawing (for example, from a magazine) from a particular scale to S-scale, use these enlargement or reduction settings on a copying machine:

To convert from any other scale to S-scale, divide that scale's proportion by 64 and multiply by 100.

    For example, let's say you want to convert from 1:29 (G gauge) to S. Use the following:

    29 / 64 x 100 = 45.3125%
