Hi Mike, (or anyone), just joined, the scale at the bottom of the page (1/32 scale) is it supposed to be 1" to 5'. At the moment I have 1.25" to 5'.
Thanks
Eric
Where did you print the plans Eric?

Hi Eric ,I would suggest you to go a professional printing service and print one page of the plans and check the measurements and if they are right than go ahead and print the rest, I can’t print them at home either no matter what setting I am using the measurement are off.Tell them to print them as it is do not change the scale.

Thanks guys, I will take them to an office depot. I Australia the 'depot' is called OfficeWorks, they sell everything from pencil leads to tea, coffee and biscuits, oh, as well as paperclips.

Ok, guys, I took the files to OfficeWorks and had them printed on A3 size paper and they are the correct size. After paying for the prints ($10+) I then purchased a new printer that can print A3 size, DUH! tested it and measurements are the same.
