    Very nice. This is by far the most difficult model I've built. (I'm yet to experience the fury of 'pay' models) Will you be painting yours? or are you going white all the way through?

    Believe me, you're much better off at twice the size...further in to the engine you will find small details which will make you wish you had gone bigger LOL :) I recon this will be close to 20" long when done.

    Someone might see it and want to sit on it though.. That could be a disaster.. To answer your question you would need to know the scale of the model your printing out. Or you would need to know the size of the actual item your modeling. If you divide the size of say the diameter of the exhaust manifold port by the size of the real one that will till you what scale you are now. Then it's just a question of bringing that up to the size of the real one.

    To get the full size one subtract the scale you are at from 100 and that is how much you will need to increase that size to get 100% or 1:1 scale.

    You should do that from your computer though instead of the printer as the computer will let you format the resulting increase as well as tweek the print out so that resulting print is not just a pixelated version of the original.

    Your engine looks great so far BTW.

    Just before the model was first released, there was a "teaser" advertisement on the Yamaha site which quoted a scale of 1:5.5, which does seem to be about right. You would need to scale up by a factor of 5.5.

    Incidentally, you can expect your model to end up about 750 mm (30 inches) long!
