    Hi Chris

    I hear many of the guy's at work saying thier wife doesn't understand them - my problem is my wife does understand me far too well.

    Don't think that excuse would wash - you could always send it back :faint:

    I could try "its a bit like when you washed yor sweater and it shrank, I dipped it in dettol and it swelled, i'll need to keep it to see it will shrink back down after a few years or wear" - maybe not 1st sentence would apply :avatar:

    Nuts, read the wrong O scale and enlarged the kit by 158%, not 176% for UK O scale :headbanger:

    That will give problems for the inspection pit as I can't even fit it on to A3 (just makes it with a bit of brute force and tickling).

    On both the Weigh bridge and inspection pit (not tried a new download of the warehouse), the pdf's can loaded into photoshop, gimp and paintshop pro, best to load it a page at a time, rescale by the required amount (read do it 176% this time).

    Create a page approx 20mm undersize all round so that printing errors can be avoided.

    For an A4 printout

    I created a 190 x 277 @ 300 dpi (gives a 10mm border allround)

    For an A3 printout

    I created a 297 x 420 @ 300 dpi

    I then copied images from the rescalled page over to the new image as separate layers, this allowed me to move them arround to optimise the positions, then print out as normal.

    Does not increasing the scale, and loading it into photoshop, gimp and paintshop pro, contradict the rule :
    'You can only use the parts that come with the kit as they were meant to be used'. :avatar::avatar:

    Cheers, Gary.
