1 ft = 12 inches, so to convert feet to inches, multiply feet by 12. Real size in ft Real size in inches Model size in inches 1,472 17,664 6 286 3,432 x The rario of real size to model size is 17,664/6. That must be equal to the ratio of th base 3,432/x. Set the ratios equal, and solve for x: 17,664/6 = 3,432/x Crossmultiply and solve for x.
