How exactly do you do this? I've been wanting to convert my airplanes too the size of a Paper hanger I found, or convert the hangar to WSAM size.

scale your 1:60 image by 42% (actually 0.416 multiplier) to get a 1:144 scale,

or enlarge your 1:144 scale image by 240% (2.4 multiplier) to get a 1:60 scale image.

How do you enlarge? Are there any programs you can do that in? I need to enlage a black and white hangar (so I don't need to care about detail) to WSAM size.

In your image program, for example, Paint Shop Pro 9, it's

IMage -> Resize

and in the pixel dimensions box, type in the percenage (42 or 240) making sure that the drop down "percent" is chosen, and below, "lock aspect ratio" and "Resize all layers" are clicked on.

Your particular graphics program/version may have different steps, but the principle is the same.

spaceguy,

if you've got photoshop, I would recommend that. Go to Image > Image Size...


then just enter either (.416) to scale down or (2.4) in the width box and set the drop down menu to (percent)

You cn also do it with Photoshop Elements, GIMP or a bunch of others, too. If you have to upsize--before you increase your dimensions, increase the DPI. Then you'll keep more detail when you stretch the distance between pixels when enlarging.
