Problem on Scale drawing.
Where I am running into a problem is in scaling down the wing area on ( full sized palne) to the model size. For example- F-86A, WS (full size) 37.11 ft. 37.11" x12"=445.32" divide by 1/7th scale= 63.62". No problem. There total wing area is 288 sq.ft. You just can't divide by 1/7th. I don't think the model would do to well with over 41 sq. ft.
I'm thinking it has to do with the fact of the numbers being squared? I know I'm missing something easy, but could use some help, thanks.
