    Ray said "let's define small"...,

    -requires a magnifying device to see the detail to appreciate it.
    -Needs to be printed at above 300 dpi to avoid seeing print screening.
    -Needs to be printed on 20-24# paper.
    - (?)

    Is this what you mean Squinticus Maximus?

    (Slapping Shaun with small scale glove) Your on! 1/285 for you!

    No. Shaun was right the first time. Conventional translation of English into arithmatic is "X of Y" is "X times Y". so "75% of 1/72" is the same as
    (75/100)*(1/72) = (1/96).

    Then there is the "reduce X by Y%" which conventially translates to "multiply X by 100-Y%" so:

    "reduce X by 25%" = "75% of X"

    Dang! Y'all got me all twisted around!


    Do we need to reduce the original scale BY 75% or do we need to make the model 75% of the original scale??

    For planes I'm thinking......... if I'm correct.
    original 1/48
    Tiny 75% 1/64
    Teeny 50% 1/96
    Teeny Winnie 25% 1/192
    Oh MY God 19% 1/250

    Am I correct?

    The scale does NOT matter.

    when you go to print your model, use page setup, instead of printing at full page (or 100%) reduce the printing to 75% of origional or smaller.

    These guys are using Math to stall...I think they are afraid to build tiny!

    Phil Phil Phil,

    You should know by now, stalling is what it's all about! And you should know by now, I don't shrink from the shrinking!

    Man, there is a lot of posturing going on here!

    @ Steve,

    Your correct. We were both saying the same thing, only expressing it differently.

    75% of 1/72 = 1/96
    Reducing 1/72 by 25% = 1/96

    Where as Shaun was using the first example, I was using the second. Thanks for helping to clear it up.

    I'm going to consider this thread the " brainstorming" before the challenge.
    I am starting my own brand new thread for this challenge with the criteria I selected (no offense Texman). I feel that the first post should outline clearly what the challenge is about. Thank you all for your input!:grin:

    Look for the thread called; " TWE's Tiny Challenge".

    After the discussions and build outlines, perhaps you should start a clean thread for the builds.
