I know what you mean Dale. Been there and done that with all the calculators, but this one works like a charm. What I did find out is this. See where the measurement line is? Always have a 16 at the very end. Unless you have a different fraction for example 5/8 etc. All in all, lets say you want to build a diorama of your garage for example. And your garage is 30' wide by 30' deep. On the first line, click take this 1:1 full scale. Now type in 30 in the first space and 30 in the next one just before the inches. Make sure you have the 16 on the very end. Now click on what scale you want, to calculate. Down at the bottom it will give you your 1:1 scale in the scale you picked ie 1/8, 1/16 etc. The reason the 16 has to be there, gives the closest number down to 1/16 of an inch.

Got Table Saw? 2x4s etc work great. Just run em through the saw. If you don't have one, their pretty cheap at blowes and Home Depot. Just make sure you install a 0 clearence plate over the blade. 1/2"= 1' in 1/24th scale(I think).

Ok, so first we have cross posting which I'm still clueless about. Now there's another one about hijacking. I'm not trying to be smart or anything, but I'm just picturing a bunch of good ol boys sittin round a hot rod garage drinkin beer and conversing about they're different cars and whatnot and one or two guys speaks up and says: Hey! You was just cross posting on what I said! Then another ol boy says: Don't hijack me or else! Ahem, well, never saw that kind thing. Reckon I'm old school. I know, it sounds like I'm takin all this personal, but I'm not. Just have a hard time trying to figure out 2013 LOL. Didn't mean to cause a ruckus either. I think I'll just lurke for a spell.

Andy, J2 and everyone else on this great site, thank you. And I'll look up that Tim Boyd feller too. This here model is the last one that I really want. There were two I remember quite well, which is this model "B" and the Go-Boy-Cart from Hawk, which I have. Bought it off the bay back in 03 I believe. My dad bought me that one brand new back in 1960. I remember it very well as it was the same time the great movie,The Absent Minded Professor was playing at the picture show downtown. We went and saw the movie, but I was reluctant, due to the model. Well needless to say, I was too young and it ended up one big ball of glue. LOL So another question here. Should I build the cart or no? After all these years, I still can't make up my mind. Whatchya'll think?

 

Thanks again.
