Determining scale on waterline kits
Posted by Craig Bennett on August 22, 2017, 16:04:27
In the past I contributed the formula for determining the scale of model in english measurements because the U.S. is still an english measurement country.The rest of the world however is meteric. Which includes Korea,Japan and China.
I don't work with the meteric system every day.
The meteric system is based on the meter.From
which a whole system of measurements were developed.If were going to measure scale on
1/700 scale warships or others should we use meteric measurement?I'm not a mathematican but
I did learn this. If we take the meter if made into meter stick and placed alongside it's equvalent the yard stick (36 inches or 3 feet)
you'll find the meter is longer. (39.37 inches)
As previously mentioned any one here
experienced with working the meteric system
enough to determine scale and know formula for it?
