Hey folks, I want to make a 1/48 scale version of the De Havilland Beaver on floats. I can see that the WSAM is 100% on the regular drawing. Unfortunately my printer cannot print a scaled up version without cutting off part of the floats. The large version scaled down would work fine. My problem is that I do not see a WSAM number on the large version (could be user error or senility :shock: ) and I'm hopeless at accurate measurements.

Can someone tell me what scale the big version is?

Thanks so much

My best guess, with a bunch of head scratching is that the scale is 1/40, so if you want 1/48 you will need to print at 83%. However, somebody probably should check my math.

I wonder if the guy that requested this information ever saw it?
