Hi Mick. you do not say what size of boat your plan says (not scale, ....size)  My approach would be to find out how long a 1;32 Perkasa is-there are a few kits out there and I dare say a few mins surfing will get you this gem of information, then nip off to the copy shop an have the plans enlarged sufficiently so that the finished result is the right size. Alternativly, if you wait a few days some clever and immensly helpful person from this site will tell you how much blowing up you need. There must be a fleets worth of Perkasas out there, I would blow  them all up given half a chance.

so, size please. Ashley

Mick    37 inches appears to be about the size as seen on website advertising 1/32 Perkasas. Ashley

Just take the plans to a copy shop and get them blown up 150%. That should give you a 36" hull and be near enough? (I think thats right)   Ashley

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.

In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.

The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their  expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!

I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
