    okay! your original scale is 1/144 and you want the model smaler to 1/200!

    144*100/200=72% -> means print it out with 72% of the page size

    your original scale is 1/200 and you want the model bigger to 1/144!

    200*100/144=138,88888% ~139% -> means print it out with 139% of the page size

    is it ok for you?

    Apologies for my math error. D-Whale is correct, 72%.

    Since you want to make the model smaller, reduce 72% to get to 1/200.
