Actually, if you want exact HO scale (3.5 mm. = 1 foot) from exact O
scale (0.25 in. = 1 foot), you would multiply the O scale dimension
(That's 3.5 mm/ft divided by 25.4 mm/in divided by 0.25 in/ft.)
HO scale is really 1/87.085714 scale ratio. Some folks use 1/87,
and some use 1/87.1, but if you want to be accurate ....
Yours for accuracy where you can find it,
