Frequently Asked Questions
- Do you offer metric scales (1:50 and 1:100)?
- Why are the drawings sometimes called 1:96 and sometimes 1/8" =1'-0"?
- Paper plans are used to represent some larger object at a smaller size for ease of handling.
- A deck plan can be drawn in such a way that if a ruler is laid over the plan, every 1/8th of an inch represents 1 foot on the full sized ship. This drawing is said to measure 1/8"=1'-0". This description is typically used to measure individual objects on the plan
- However, another way to look at it is every object in the drawing is 1/96th the size of the original so the drawing is said to be scaled 1:96. So a room measuring 2 inches wide on the plan is actually 192 inches in real life. This term is typically used when discussing the plan as a whole
- Do you offer Paypal or credit card transactions?
- Not at the present, but I will certainly consider it if the volume of business warrants it.
- Will you be offering an electronic version of your Titanic Plans?
- I have talked to several information technology specialists, and the consensus is that material committed to an electronic medium is too difficult to protect without employing strategies that are outside budget considerations
