How about the squares method?

Subdivide your little drawing into a bunch of equally-sized squares... then make another sheet with said squares enlarged by your scale factor.

THEN.. redraw one square at a time.

You need a much bigger one than that. You can do it, but it is much less accurate if the picture is smaller. A easy and the most accurate method is via the fingerboard. You must know what the length of the real size fingerboard though. Like say you have a 25.5 inch scale guitar in your model. Measure the length to the tenth of a millimeter of your neck. The neck of a 25.5 inch scale guitar is 648mm. Do the division 648 / X and then you have your multiplication factor. Then you measure everything and multiply it.

Okay here is what i do to upscale a small drawing. You get your picture printed on to a transluecency, the you put in on an overhead projector and you keep moving it around until the distance between the nut and bridge is the desired scale length, Say 25.5. It works everytime and anyone who dis-credits this does not know what they are talking about

Crap, I should have thought of that.

Listen to this man, he has the answer!

I had a drawing enlarged at a copying place. Cost me £1.50. If I was you I would redraw the drawing full size- I'm sorry but 3 inches?

Adobe illustrator. draw around the pic then with the rulers on scale it to the right size and get a printer company if they will print it on one sheet of paper for you. that's what I would do.

If he doesn't have Photoshop, then he won't have Illustrator.

major bump....

anyway, thanks for the ideas, but as for anything with the neck- its only a drawing of the body
judging by these responses, i might go to the nearest copy shop

considering i dont have access to an overhead F***in projecter, which really pisses me off

thanks for the help!

EDIT: oh yeah, be lookin out for this build over the summer!
