How do I work out the scale of my model?

There is a rough formula that you can use for this:
Original Length (feet) x 12 =inches
Divide the inches by the model length (inches)
= a scale of 1:...
For example:
Original Ship length 46 feet x12 = 552 inches
Model Length 32 inches
552 divided by 32= 17.25
= scale of 1:17
Please Note
Almost all, of our fittings are measured in millimeters, and can only roughly be translated to any scale. You need to work out what size is closest to your model scale before ordering.
