    Some of thge models are in A4 and others in letter.

    It will be a problem to print one made for A4 in letter format?

    the scale will be Ok?

    thank you

    A4 is narrower, but longer than letter grade. If the images on the sheet do not use the full length, it might be fine to just print without scaling (adobe automatically scales to fit, you have to select the option not to scale). Note that Legal paper is a good option to use if you have it, although I do not know if Legal size is available in cardstock.

    Letter to A4 is trickier, as often the full width is used. Again, try printing without scaling and look in the print previewer to see if any parts get dropped of the edges.

    I really wish NA would get with the program and adopt these Euro standards that actually make sense. I find it bizarre that the only hold-out for Imperial measuring standards rebelled against the progenitors of it over 200 years ago.

    At worst case, you can open the images in GIMP or another photo editor and adjust the sections, although that is a painstaking process.
