Since I am new to modeling and scratchd building. I want to build a wisdom tornado and Go gator. I was wondering if anybody could help me with approx. W/H they should be. I want them to fit in with the IHC models that I have ordered. Is there anyway I can fig make ure real W/H to into HO size? Also I am goin to make some food and game trailers what are the HO sizes that everybody is making? Any Help I can get would be awesome.

IHC isn't really up to HO Scale. Most of us use HO Scale 1/87

Just go to you local hobby shop and buy a scale rule, either metal or plastic but I prefer a metal one.

Also, in a pinch you can go to a office supply shop and either buy an architectural scale. You can use 1/8" scale (1:96) and that is pretty close to HO (1:87) just slightly smaller.
It is what you learn, after you know it all, that counts.
