    Multiply feet by 12 to give you the size in inches.
    95ft = 1140in then multipy that by 25.4 for the size in millimetres
    1140in = 28956mm divide by 33 for 877.454545mm in 1/33 scale.

    That's going to be a pretty big bird.

    For conversions you can use one of the on-line tools, ea

    Span/Length/Height - you are correct

    Hi, Yaniv ....C-47 is one of my favorite aircrafts!

    I think the dimension in 33scale in mm is Span would be 877.45; Length would be 594.97 and Height would be 156.24! These I derived from Multiplying the 1:1 length (in Feet) by 12 (inches to the foot) and divide the product by 33 ( the scale) and multiply this by 24.5 to arrive at the millimeter dimension...

    I actually see something I can reply about!!! I have been a part of this group for sometime, but mostly lurking. I have been building Card models for sometime, and love the hobbie.

    Now, the C-47. Fiddlers Green has a fairly good C-47. I would have to check on the scale. I am building it now, and if it turns out halfway decient, I will post some pics.

    What is your source (the drawings, I mean) in preparing the tracing? I'm also thinking of doing a Tim Perry's tutorial using the C-47 as the basis... My source, obtained from Internet, has some details obscured...Best regards

    In Paint Shop Pro under the Adjust menu, possible buried somewhere else depending on version, is a negative command. Run that which will reverse the black and white, then save the save.

    You might also want to download Convert, a free program which does a lot of different conversions. It can be found at

    My math isn't as good as it used to be, so I really on little programs like these a lot to assist me. I am sure it will be just as useful for you.
