Nightfly


I've made your model of the Sony Tower recently but it came out quite large (bigger than the generally used 1:1700 scale). What software do you use to print it out and what scale do you use?

I'll get a photo of it on this thread soon, hopefully tonight.

Nightfly, I've also made a model of your Sony Tower. I think it's awesome! I've built the whole tower except for the roof which I can not glue on so I haven't glued it on yet.

I have to do some adjustments to the printer settings to get the same scale as STR's but I can't remember which. I will look it up later and let you know.

I've checked the scale of my model. It is 212mm high, when it should be 115.9mm, suggesting a scale down to 55% of its original size in order to get it to a 1:1700 scale.

Does this sound about right, Nightfly.

I'm going to reprint and rebuild it and see what comes of it.

Hey Piginapoke, if you rescale it to STR scale, can you post it on your thread? Cause I don't know how to rescale it!

You can rescale it in MS Paint. Here's what I do to get Rei's models ready for normal (100% printing). I don't know if this works for Nightfly's models though! Might be best to get to the preview and decide if it works before printing!


Load it into Paint.
Go to page setup.
Change Orientation to either landscape or portrait depending on how the model is oriented on the page.
Switch off vertical and horizontal centering
Change margins all to 0 (you might find it adjusts to slightly more than zero, don't worry just accept it)
Make sure scaling is set to 100%
Print preview and it should fit on the page

if you want to scale it down, then do the above but adjust the scaling to 55%. If you want it very accurate then you might need to amend the scaling a little bit (say 54% or whatever works best).

I haven't tried this yet, but it should work in theory.
