my understanding was that 1/10 scale means the size scales down by a factor of ten, but the physics don't.
1/10 scale would be 1/10 of the total overall volume, not just 1/10 of the measurements. There is a formula for it, but my brain is far too fried right now to remember it. I've been fabbing sheet metal all day and the constant measuring and math have about shut me down. You could probably find it, or even a calculator online with a quick search.
