Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
a model airplane has a scale factor of 1:48
this means that
length of model plane/ length of actual plane =1/48
8inches/ wingspan of actual plane = 1/48
wingspan of actual plane = 8inches/(1/48)
wingspan of actual plane = 8inches*48 = 384inches
