Rescaling and printing gundam images
« on: November 27, 2015, 09:19:37 PM »

Not sure if this is the right place to put this.

Can somebody help me with how to re-scale an image(i.e. Kshatriya here) so that it actually prints the same size as in 1/144 or any other scales.

Just about any printing program has scaling. Just make sure you lock height & width so they both expand or contract at the rate, some programs call it proportion, others have a lock symbol near the dimension box or some other way of doing it.

I'm thinking I'd print multiple copies with different sizes then checking with the actual kit to see it it aligns. That gets me the actual dimensions in printed form. From there I just rescale the image 44% bigger to get the 1/100 scale.

But I'm trying if there's another way to get the base dimensions without printing too much copies. Seems like a waste of ink, paper, time, and effort.
