 it is imperial on the other side not English. if it is flat i'll use a see thru ruler but to measure a ship hull i'll either either a 6" digital caliper or my 2' long caliper. --Previous Message-- : Use a ruler that has metric measurements on : one edge and English on the other side. : : Then multiply by 700 or divide by 700, as : appropriate. After a while, you will find : it is easier to work with metric than to : need to divide by 12 or divide by 16 for : fractions of an inch. : Rick : : --Previous Message-- : 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.
