help needed

Hi, Nando.
If the Lem is 1/48 scale and if the astronaut is 1/12 scale, shouldn't I resize this last at 1/4th, that is 25%?
Thank you

With the pages scanned You can resize them, reducing them at 1/3rd. Be aware do not to share the scanned images for do not violate the copyright.

Otherwise, if You have a printer that give You the possibility to scale down the output, you have simply to print at 33%.

I hope this could help You.

My model is about 15 cm tall (5.9 inches). I estimated that a man is 180 cm tall (70.9 inches), therefore 180 / 15 = 12.

You are right: to downsize the model at 1/48 scale You have to reduce it by 25%. My brain is aging more then I believe. :(

About a tiny astronaut. I found in this french forum this astronaut model. Ok It isn't paper and it isn't american, but it could be on the moon also.

You can rate the size of a 1/48 astronaut, thinking that it is at 1/24 scale.

The LK model is a true masterpiece.

Best, Nando

Ok, I think that the Mooscape it's ok now.

First I carved the foot prints to give a stable base at the Astronaut.



Then I used this "device" to flatten the paper machè



Finally I masked the base to do the last velum of dust ...



Best, Nando
