1000 mm = 1 m. 10 cm = 0.1 m. Ratio scales. If the scale of the plan is 1 : 100, this means the real measurements are 100 times longer than they are on the plan. So 1 cm on the plan represents a real length of 100 cm (1 metre)
Thereof, what is 1 to 20 scale?
An engineer's scale is a tool for measuring distances and transferring measurements at a fixed ratio of length. Referred to as 1:10, 1:20, 1:30,1:40, 1:50 or 1:60 scale. Typically in civil engineering applications, 1:10 (1″=10′) is used exclusively for detail drawings. 1:20 and 1:40 scales are used for working plans.
1:50 is a ratio. it means you're scaling 1 unit to 50 units. that could be inches (1"=50") or miles (1 mile=50 miles) or anything else, but it's a direct scale.
In the real world, one meter is equal to one meter. A drawing at a scale of 1:10 means that the object is 10 times smaller than in real life scale 1:1. It is worth noting that scale drawings represent the same units. So, if a drawing is at 1:50 in cm, 1cm in the drawing will be equal to 50cm in real life.
The scale is shown as the length in the drawing, then a colon (":"), then the matching length on the real thing. Example: this drawing has a scale of "1:10", so anything drawn with the size of "1" would have a size of "10" in the real world, so a measurement of 150mm on the drawing would be 1500mm on the real horse.
1:12 scale is a traditional scale (ratio) for models and miniatures, in which 12 units (such as inches or centimeters) on the original is represented by one unit on the model. The scale is popular for dollhouses, especially those aimed at adult collectors.
16.5 mm (0.65 in) Prototype gauge. Standard gauge. HO or H0 is a rail transport modelling scale using a 1:87 scale (3.5 mm to 1 foot). It is the most popular scale of model railway in the world.
1: 200 scale: means 1 metre on the map represents 200 metres on the ground. Therefore it's a far more detailed map than the 1:1250 scale. We hope this helps! Go here to order any of these 1:200 scale plans, 1:500 scale plans, 1:1250 scale plans and 1:2500 scale plans.
1:48 is also a popular scale among Lego enthusiasts since it is approximately the scale of the minifig. At this scale, 1/4 inch represents 1 foot. It is similar in size to 1:50 scale and 1:43 scale which are popular for diecast vehicles.
High Grade kits are a great start for anyone looking to start building Gundam models for the first time. MG Gundam kits are the next step up from High Grade kits, both in terms of size and detail. These kits are 1/100 in scale, meaning the MG RX-78 Gundam will stand around 18 cm (7 1/2 inches) tall.
One inch in the drawing is one times N inches. Five feet in the drawing is five times N feet. Therefore scale 1:1000 means that one centimeter (one hundredth of a meter, i.e. 0.01m) in the drawing corresponds to 0.01m x 1000 = 10 meters.
1:72 scale is a scale used for scale models, most commonly model aircraft, corresponding to one sixth of an inch representing one foot (or 1 inch to 6 feet). In other words, 72 of a given model placed end to end would represent the length of the real thing.
Re: Drawing scales in Metric vs Imperial
|1:5m 1 cm = 5 cm||3" = 1'-0" three inch scale|
|1:50 1 cm = 0.5 m||1" = 4' quarter inch scale (actual scale: 1" = 4.17')|
|1:100 1 cm = 1 m||1" = 8' eighth inch scale (actual scale: 1"= 8.33')|
|1:200 1 cm = 2 m||1" = 1/16' sixteenth inch scale (actual scale: 1" = 16.66')|
“Scale” refers to the relative size of the replica toy to the actual vehicle, expressed as a fraction or a ratio. The large toy tractor is 1/16 the size of the actual tractor. Every inch on the replica equals 16 inches on the real tractor. For example, a 1/16 scale toy could measure 8, 12, or 14 inches long.
1:350 scale. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Jump to: navigation, search. 1:350 scale is a popular scale used by model ship kit manufacturers such as Tamiya, Hasegawa, Aoshima, Fujimi, Trumpeter and Revell.
1:24 scale is a very popular size for automobile models such as injection-molded plastic model kits or metal die-cast toys, which are built and collected by both children and adults. 1:24 means that a unit of measurement, such as one inch or one centimeter, on the model represents 24 units on the actual object.
Wargame figures are traditionally expressed in terms of the height of the model from sole to eyes in millimetres. Classic wargame scales are 25mm, 15mm and 20mm. The nominal scale of 40K is 28mm 'heroic'. If you convert this to proportional scale, GW infantry models are supposedly about 1/60 scale.
A scale model is a representation or copy of an object that is larger or smaller than the actual size of the object being represented. Very often the scale model is smaller than the original and used as a guide to making the object in full size.
Matchbox cars are primarily made in two sizes: The smaller models ("regular size"; 1-75 and related series) are often classified as 1:64 scale (though they range from smaller than 1:100 to much larger than 1:64) and measure about 2.5-3 inches, or 6.5-7.5 centimetres, in length.
1:32 scale is a traditional scale for models and miniatures, in which one unit (such as an inch or a centimeter) on the model represents 32 units on the actual object. It is also known as "three-eighths scale", since ?3⁄8 inch represents a foot. 1:32 is the scale for Gauge 1 toy and model trains.
Showing 1-5 of 5 answers. This car is a 1:55 tscale that is the Mattel scale of these cars, slightly bigger than a hot wheels car which is 1/64 scale or a matchbox car but smaller then the Disney store version of these cars which is 1:48 scale..
