Following my build of the 1/35 APC im planning on doing the dropship in 1/35 which if all goes to plan wont take too long.
But im also planning on another APC build but with it being in 1/20 but im not great with numbers and wondered if anyone is any good with conversions to I can get the right scale up.
Any help wiuld be great.

Paul. Get yourself one of those triangular scaling rulers. They do all the popular scales..  im sure there will be a mathematical equasion to convert from 1/35 to 1/20 but ive been away from school too long  :-)

To convert something from 1/20 to 1/35, first divide 35 by 20 which gives you 1.75.

Then multiply your current measurement by 1.75 to give the size it would be in 1/20.


The formula is current scale/required scale x measurement to get any scale you want.

Loks like over the next week I shall be drawing up some 1/20 scale plans.
Think I will stumble when it comes to making the wheels but going to give it a bloody good go.

If it would be of any help to the drop ship idea, I`ll happily send you scans of the instruction sheet from the Halcyon kit if you want.
