O determine ANY scale you divide the actual measurement, in inches, millimeters, or miles, by the denominator in the fraction. for example:

25 inches in 1/25 scale is 1 inch. (you divide the 25 inches by the denominator in 1/25....25.) 25 divided by 25=1

Model Scratch Building


You may not have heard of it but scratch
building is a hugely popular hobby that fans take very seriously.



Scratch building involves building a
scale model but from scratch ie not using a commercial kit or a pre-assembled
model.






What are the rules of scratch building?


There are no official rules to scratch
building. Some people believe that you can only call it scratch building if you
use completely raw materials and don’t have any plans or measurements to work
from. But others are not such purists and are willing to use even commercially
built parts in order to build their models.






What kind of materials are used for
scratch models?



Anything can be used to build scale
models from scratch, such as; wood, plastic, clay, paper or metal.






How do I get good at scratch building?


Most scratch builders start by
practicing on ready made building kits for scale models. Some of these are very
detailed and despite having all the parts, still require a lot of technical
skill.



Once you are good at commercial kits,
you can move on to building from scratch.



How do I scratch build?


You need some kind of plan; either a
prototype to follow or a design of your own that can be transferred into a
pattern so that you can start to cut out the parts and pieces you need for your
project. At the end of the actual building, you then need to ‘finish’ the
piece. This involves trimming, polishing, painting, weathering etc. This is the
part of the process that will take your technical piece to the level of
realistic model.






Good luck and have fun.

Changed batteries and now the scale does not read correct weights. off by more than 40 lbs


You might wanna double check that your scale is set to the right measurement. On the bottom of the scale is a switch that allows you to choose between Kg (kilograms) or LB (pounds).

Scale is not weighing correctly. Weighs correct


The scale must be on a hard, level surface. Make sure there is absolutely no dirt on any of the pivot points. Calibrate it with a KNOWN 25 pound weight.

Just hung sony 46''flat screen tilts slightly measurements =


this is quite common on older houses/buildings and on occasion newer ones aswell, when a house is built a decent carpenter keeps his building fairly level, usually within 1/16th of an inch, but there are times when this exceeds 1/16th of an inch, personally i'v seen houses being built where the whole foudation is off 1/2 inch or more end to end, and on older buildings as time goes by the foundation "settles" into the ground, depending what it was built on the whole building could settle further on one end of the house than the other, this can cause cracks to form in foundations. So if your tv is "level" (be sure to try another level) and your measurments are out, this usually means your house or building isn't level or the surface which you are measuring from isn't level. But be sure to try 2 or more levels to ensure the TV is in fact "level", hope this helps.

BF% is wrong


Unfortunately, it's the scale, but it's not broken. It simply is telling you inaccurate information.
Some scales utilize Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA) technology. BIA uses very low levels of electrical impulses running from one metal contact point/lead to another. Your body acts as the connector between the two contact points, thus completing the circuit. Not all scales use this means for calculating body fat percentage due to poor reliability and high fabrication costs.This method of measurement requires very large contact points, as well as clean and moist skin exposure. If you have dry/calluced feet, which is normal for most Americans, the sensors can not accurately measure due to skin resistance. Dry skin acts as a resistor to electrical impulse. Electricity passes through muscle and fat at different rates. However, its measurements may be thrown off by how hydrated you are and how much you've eaten; it may be too inaccurate for anything other than comparative use. Users are encouraged to establish a baseline measurement and repeat measurements under consistent conditions over time to detect changes.
Many less expensive models simply use a body-fat calculator to average your imputed height in inches, waist measurement in inches and the current weight measurement recorded in lbs. The scale compares your measurement with the ideal norms inputed during the manufactoring process, thus giving you a comparison vs.imputed norms. People who are very, very fit can get numbers 3 to 5 percent higher than their true percent body fat. Because they don't have a lot of fat inside their muscles(visceral fat), the simple tape measure calculation test cannot adjust as it should indicate.
Conversely, if a person is skinny but not fit, this body fat test may yield a number 3 to 5 percent lower than his or her true percent body fat. Though they look thin, unfit skinny people really have more than the usual amount of fat inside their muscles, which you can't see from the outside.
In either case, the scale is not necessary a measurement tool, due to high variables of test inaccuracy and interuser reliabilty; but, it is a good tool for comparing whether or not you are gaining/losing body fat.
If you would like a more accurate tool for simply measuring your body fat, you can pick up some pinch-calipers online for about the price of a scale. They come with an instructional pamphlet, very easy to use.
