    I think we need a review of fractions. Fun Fact: The bottom number in any fraction (1/2, 1/100, 1/350, etc.) is called the denominator. Say it with me: dee-nomm-inn-ater. 1. To convert from one scale to another, the rule is: Denominator of the scale you have divided by denominator of the scale you want. So if you have a plan in 1/350 and want to convert it to 1/400, simply divide 350 by 400: 350/400 = 0.875. 2. Now, convert that to a percentage, because just about every copier uses percentage to enlarge or reduce. How do we convert to percentage? Multiply the result obtained in Step 1 by 100: 0.875 x 100 = 87.5%. If the copier you are using does not allow fractions of a per cent, then round up or down at your discretion. Study this. Learn this. There will be a quiz tomorrow. Bring a #2 pencil and your Big Chief tablet to class.

    I went back to reread your first post. I think I goofed. You are building in the smaller scale. In that case, you must reduce your 1/350 scale plan to .875 to get to a 1/400 scale plan. Again, a good copier should be able to do this as well. My most common math error- failure to accurately read the question! Nick

    Bob, You'll do. I was getting review samples from Squadron about that time and earlier. '73 is still the early days, especially since those who joined in the 90s look on anything in the 80s as the early days. Believe me, they don't know what they missed. Richard
