# How to enlarge scale

Hello I received my Linda Jo plans today. They are 1/32 scale and I want to enlarge them to 1/24. With my math its comes out 133% to increase for 1/24 scale. 32 divided 24 = 1.33 round to 133% so if I increase to 133 % on the copier I should have 1/24 am I correct or am I missing something?? Thanks

A clubmate who was getting his Iowa plans enlarged from 1/96 to 1/72 had to get them re-done twice due to inaccurate/ inconsistent plans! The side view was a different overall length compared 2 the top view!
