AHOY,

Yes use the insert function, how I wish I had known that with my FRAGMENTED FIGHTING FACTS post. But I well not clutter up the boards with corrected versions.

I thought this info combined with the Planing section of Tri-F was worth noting.

If anyone finds errors in this caveman's i.e. my figures please feel free to correct me.

#### ONE FOOT EQAULS ONE MILE SCALE:

Note dividing measurements by 12 keeps them proportionate when miniaturizing.

Note; when I reached to 1/128th mark representing 3.4 or 3 feet 3 inches my limited math skills reached their limit so I begin to round off the figures. However I would argue that the exact figures would not make enough different to matter.

Micron or (um). One millionth of a meter. 1000th of a mm, (1000 in a mm). There are 25400 in one inch. 250 um equal 100th of an inch. The human hair is from 75 to 100 um in width. The human egg is 100 um in width, a single human cell 10 (and is considered to be invisible to the naked eye under any conditions). A bacteria 1-2 um. A virus 100 to 1000 times smaller. Now you would be into the Nano world, billionths of a meter.

1/5000th (thousandth) of an inch = 1 inch to scale. Also 6.5 or 6.25 microns/um.

1/3968th or (4000th of an inch rounded) AKA 1/32 of a 128th of an inch.

512th = 10 inches to scale aka a 500th of an inch (rounded off) and or ¼ of a 128th of an inch. Also 65 um.

256th  = 1.7 feet about 18 inches or rounded (125 um), aka 1/50th or ½ of a 128th.

A 128th = 3.4 feet. And about 250 um. Note 3.4 feet rounded to 40 inches, then divide 250 i.e. um by 40 i.e. inches equals, 6.25, thus an inch equals 6.25 um.

1/64th = 6.8, 3/128th = 10.2, 1/32 = 13.6, 5/128th = 17 ft., 3/64th = 20.4, 7/128th = 23.8, 1/16th = 27.2 or .6 rounded, 9/128th = 30.6, 5/64th = 34.0, 11/128th = 37.4, 3/32nd = 40.8, 13/128th = 44.2, 7/64th = 47.6, 15/128th = 51, 1/8th = 54.4 or 55 feet rounded, 17/128th = 57.8, 9/64th = 61.2, 19/128th = 64.6, 5/32nd = 68, 21/128th = 71.4, 11/64th = 74.8, 23/128th = 78.2, 3/16th = 81.6, 25/128th = 85, 13/64th = 88.4, 27/128th = 91.8, 7/32nd = 95.2, 29/128th = 98.6, 15/64th = 102, 31/128th = 105.4, 1/4th = 108.8 or 110 rounded.

1/512 = 1/512

1/256 = 2/512.

1/128 = 2/256 or 4/512.

1/64 = 2/128 or 4/256 or 8/512.

1/32 = 2/64 or 4/128 or 8/256 or 16/512.

1/16 = 2/32 or 4/64 or 8/128 or 16/256 or 32/512.

1/8 = 2/16 or 4/32 or 8/64 or 16/128 or 32/256 or 64/512.

3/16 = 6/32 or 12/64 or 24/128 or 48/256 or 96/512.

¼ = 2/8 or 4/16 or 8/32 or 16/64 or 32/128 or 64/256 or 128/512.

¼ of a mile 1320 feet or 3 inches to scale. 1/3 of a mile 1760 feet or 4 inches to scale. 5 inches is 2200 feet to scale. ½ mile 2640 feet or 6 inches to scale. 7 inches is 3080 feet to scale. 8 inches is 3520 feet to scale. ¾ of a mile 3960 feet or 9 inches to scale.

1 mile 5280 feet or 1 foot to scale.

1 ¼ mile 6600 feet

1 ½ mile 7920 feet

1 ¾ mile 9240 feet

2 miles 10560 feet

### AREA AND DISTANCE COVERAGE CHART;

10 troops minimum distance ¼ inch to scale 110 feet in reality. Interval 10 feet apart. Maximum 1 ¼ inch to scale 550 feet in reality. Interval 55 feet apart. Note; at this point figures (for maximum intervals of 55 feet) are al

 newjarheaddean    ANYWAYS   2/2/2011 11:40:52 PM AHOY, I?m offal proud I must admit with my reasoning here, I did not read this in any book as a statement it was me using notes of various facts.   22000 MPH = 366 miles per minute or 366 feet to scale, note the relationship with the 365 degrees in a circle. That speed would also cover 6 miles or feet to scale per second. Note 6 degrees per second on the face of a clock. 21900 mph would be 365 miles per SECOND not hour exactly.   I think thats the theory of space flight LOL, LOL, LOL.   More bragging lol. Mach 1 is 88kt (163km/hr) greater at 36,000ft (10,973m) than it is at sea level.   Para stunt 700? alt. 270 degree diving turn and swoop throw 90? high aircraft hanger at 60 mph. More wt for speed in dive Vs thrust with aircraft twice speed four times left.   Here word Modle is where I chose to return to my computer as I was inserting post, to use my spell checker do to the fact I was smart enough to realize going through all the ignore clicks would have taken for ever but I failed to delete my test spelling for Model. LOL, LOL. Modle   "I well bet my lucky star"   G-day!
