Lister RM Scale drawing - 16mm

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

Lister RM Scale drawing - 16mm

Postby johna » Sat Nov 01, 2014 12:30 pm

Thanks to Chris Stockdale for the link ,I now have Lister scale drawings from Jeremy Tilston after buying his ebooks.

I need to reduce them as they have been drawn to 16mm scale and just want to know the best way to get them to GN15.

Depends on how you define "Gn15" as ther are different interpretations of "G" - are you modeling to 1/20.3, 1/22.5 or 1/24 ?

16 mm scale is 1/19,06, so you divide 19,06 by either 20.3, 22.5 or 24, multiply by 100 to get a percentage and set your printer to print at either 94%, 85% or 79%
