dual dimensions

Is there a way of scaling a dual dimension?

For example, I have a scale model I am building and I want the actaul model dimension to be the primary one and the dual dimension to be the primary X5.

Any help appreciated.

Steve, If it's just the odd dimension, then the following method might do....

In the sketch where the relevant dimension is, add a construction line and dimension its length. Use an equation to make its length 5x the original.

In the drawing, insert the model dimensions which will show the 1:1 and 5:1 dimensions. Create a note and select the 5:1 dimension to be embedded ( if that's the right word) in the note. Group this note with the 1:1 dimension so that it moves with it as the dual dimension. Now hide the 5:1 dimension.
