I have developed a very simple Excel-based tool for converting measurements take from photos to scale measurements for scratch-building.

I'll try to post it on this site as soon as I figure out how to do so. (Any hints as to how to post an Excel workbook here?)

Until then, I'll be happy to e-mail it to anyone who wants it.

Semper Fi,
Dave

Hi Dave,

Sounds intriguing. I'd appreciate an e-mail explaining the tool if you don't think you're going to be able to post it here.
Thanks in advance,
Mike

Hi Dave
Thanks mate!
I got the email & the file loaded up okay! I have tried some paper excercises & it seems to work great!
I am (hopefully) going to commit to trying it out on a project (1/16th scale 1934 Zundapp Motorcycle) this week end, so I will let you know how I get on.
Regards
mark
