My option would be to contact Scalescenes themselves as I find by scanning the normal printed output & thus in a photo editting programme, while I can increase the size, it looses definition.

If you go to scalescenes website and click on 'Printing Tips', there is a link if you are modelling in other scales.  This link explains how to reduce the size of the kits by scaling down via your printer options.  Scalescenes website explains it better than I can.  I guess you would just do the opposite and scale up.

Hi,

 

A chap called 'Traction' an RMWeb member, has done a narrow-boat in 'O' scale, as well as going the other way and doing terraced houses in 'T' scale. He's the friendly sort so I'm sure he can advise re definition, etc. or 'Redgate' has done a S'scenes signal box in 'O'....

Hope that helps,

 

Doug

 

Edited to say.......I think Adobe has the ability to automatically paginate [is that a word?] images larger than A4 although I have never used it.

I did check my printer options just then & yes with a cheap Epson Stylus Inkjet printer, it does allow for up-scaling.

The original 'plans' are, I assume 'OO' size?

To be able to then print them larger on an A4 printer you need to reduce the number (not size) of parts per page. Once you have done this you can then increase the size of each part so that it is to the correct scale but still fits onto an A4 page, each part may need more than one page so you would need to join them together after printing. So for a 4 page 'OO' model you may end up with 20 pages for the equivelent 'O' model

If you follow...........;-)

Cor!  I think I'd be tempted to memory-stick the download and visit a friendly print-shop.....and get it done on A3. The amount of ink [think not 'doubling' the area to be printed, but 'squaring' it] would make me shudder, too.

'Ere, isn't this a bit tecknickle for a Sunday brunch-time...:)

Hi every one,i tried rescaling by 175% like the guy said on the other forum,but it dont turn out to good for me,so what i have done is borrowed my mates legal copy of adobe illustrator cs4,he runs a vinyl printing buisness and i some time help him out with vector images.and hey presto you can resize with out loss of qaulity and save as pdf.problem is on A4 sheets you can only get a certain amount of images because of the up scaled size.so you will need a lot of paper,also forgot to mention i have upscaled from N gauge file to 0 gauge and there isnt a problem with qaulity .it will take me a bit of time measureing ect to get every thing up to scale.i exported a interior side wall as a jpg to show you and added a few bit to it.top picture shows origanal n gauge size against 0 gauge size.
