Yeah, I have to set things up in a spread sheet. Run a column of STA dimensions, then to a column of the deltas (differences). Then I add a column with the deltas multiplied by the model scale factor.

It's crazy when the "0" station isn't the bottom or the tip of the nose, but you just account for in your dimension table.

Edit: here is an example of a V2...note for some dimensions I used STA 0, others, like some fin dimensions I use the top of the fin root so drawing the fin is easier. My weird scale is for a BT-101 body. This is an xlsx file, had to zip it to upload it.
