Re-Sizing a Gauge or Scale

For example: To resize a kit from 1:87 (HO Scale) to 1:76 (OO Gauge) you should divide 87 by 76 then multiply by 100 to get 114.473%

 

To re-size a kit, you can set your printer to print the kit bigger or smaller by percentage depending on what scale or gauge you model in. 

 

To get started on re-sizing, open your printer properties as shown below on my home printer (Bear in mind that there are hundreds of makes of printer and each one will be slightly different from mine).
