scaling up weapon from blueprint!
i've had some brilliant help and suggestions on how to make my CZN M22 assault rifle...and now i'm itching to start making it!

HOWEVER!

im struggling to work out how big to print the blueprints in order to create an accurate weapon...

http://section9.8m.com/guns/9gun.html

- this page lists it as being 65 cm in length! do i trust this source and blow the blueprints up to that size? it seems pretty big?

http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Ghost_in_the_Shell#CZN-M22
- this page has alot of info about the weapon but nothing i can see about length!?!

any help hugely appreciated!

also..how thick/wide should i be building it?

have you tried looking at the screenshots and copying the stances to try and get an estimate?
for me if i look at this pic http://blacklight-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=319911&page=2
and copy the stance, then yes itll be around 60ish
and from the imfdb pics it looks around 6-8cm wide?

like if it was a staff youd look for a pic thats its against a certain body part and replicate it from that height right?

thankyou! thats really helpful. i've printed it off on our large format printer at work at 65cm and it doesn't look too bad!

no worries! you've been really helpful.

i'm gonna print a few copies off and cut out and number all the small pieces. gonna cut the main shape out of wood in the workshop at school (im an art technician) and some of the smaller bits im hoping they'll laser cut for me in the technology department out of a thin sheet of mdf!
