strange thing happened yesterday :o i went to staples to enlarge some
parts, well  :o i told the girl to enlarge the parts 150% and she did.
      well it looked like she made the parts 350%  :o :o  now i know for the
hull and first deck i copyed everything at 150%  but now i'm wondering
if i made a mistake with my math or did the staples girl just mess up real bad!!!

My son used to work for Staples so it's a fair bet they messed up.
Yours does look 50% bigger than original or the original looks 2/3 the size of the new one, so I would think you are probably OK. O0

 O0 Great work so far. Looking forwards to seing the finnished project.

Have often wondered why Billings did the Rotterdam at 1:75 and the Nederland at 1:33  ???

Just picture the pair of them together at 1:33 scale......

The missus will never go for it! >>:-(
