[SPLIT, MOVED] scaling factor for reducing model's dimensions

Postby craig h on Fri Oct 21, 2011 12:11 am

I would like to know at what percentage I would use to reduce a plan of a model airplane of 30" to obtain a model airplane to 20"...for I am very poor of the use of percentages. Example: wing span 30" reduced to 20" ..the plan would have to be reducet to ? percentage.

Thank You...Craig h

You can learn about percents here.
:clap:
(But you can also just divide original values by 3 and then multiply by 2 to get scaled values.)
