it all depends what pic you see... but it definitely isn't 2 times ... I have been wondering if I modify a little downward... as I think I put the line a little high... but lets be serious....I'm talking about 1-2 mm to high and my black line is about 2mm wide... that's 1.07 m on the real ship
I used this dry dock pic to define my black line

and the the black line is on this pic 4 feet... I'm close as 4 feet is about 1.2 m
this scale is 1/535... impossible to do 100% perfect

and it continues on my little Curtis S1 Seahawks
this was particularity difficult to make these rear wings look like wings with the necessary curbing due to their small size
