Posted by Corvairv8 on Sunday, February 04, 2018 10:31 AM

I am looking to build a frame for a 1/25 scale model for a Corvair. in full size it would be 2" x 3" steel. 

 

is there a good chart out there to use.

1 scale inch is close to 1mm in 1/25th scale, so you could use 2mm x 3mm to replicate the desired size.

Yup, aliasT.W has it absolutely correct. If you are more confortable working in imperial measure, 1 inch = .040" in scale. So 2" x 3"  equals .080" x .120" in scale. But you're in Canada so of course you will be at ease with metric. Wink

Evergreen has the styrene strip stock for that, .080 X .125 inches.  Don't let that extra .005" worry you, it's such a small difference as to be virtually unnoticeable--very close to the thickness of a common business card.
