Scale conversion question

Hi all,
Need help: I saw a model on Ebay that is supposedly in 3/8 scale. Does
3/8 convert into any more conventional modeling scale? Like 1/35,
1/48?
Math is not my strong point. Thanks in advance.

I'm assuming that this means 3/8"=1' (like the practice of calling 1/48 "quarter scale" when 1/4"=1').
That would make it 1/32.

They probably meant 3/8 inch scale. That means 3/8 of an inch of the model kit equals 12" of the real thing
3 3 --- = 12" which translates to --- or 1/32nd scale. 8 96
If not, 3/8 scale translates to 1/2.67 scale. Odd scale and HUGE.
