    OK, so I'm building the Shimada 1:50 shuttle (there's a build thread over on Real Space, but I've not updated it for a while).

    When I'm finished, I'd like to build a stack to go with it. If I have a 1:100 stack, how much do I have to enlarge it to make it 1:50. I think it's 400% - am I right?

    scaling

    Actually, you want it to be twice as big, or 200%. 400% would give you 1:25 scale.
