GN15 to oo gauge on a printer

For discussion of the issues faced when building a model or layout - how to replicate wood, what glues to use, exactly how much weathering can a Gnat take, a good source of detailing accessories - you get the picture, I'm sure.

GN15 to oo gauge on a printer

Postby johna » Sun Oct 09, 2016 9:57 pm

I have copies of the brick wall and Windows printers many of us use for GN15. I would like to use them for a oo gauge back scene but what % do I reduce them to when printing them out please?

Johna,
I think this table might assist
You need to go from 1/24 scale to 1/76, so according to the table the answer is 31.58% difference.

please double check me, maths and measurements were never my forte. :D

Nice one Geoff, very handy. I am looking for a suitable paper model building for a machine shop on my layout and that easy conversion chart will make that search easier yet.
