    I think yes, you can switch between feet and meters in the container manger, DP files are in meters

    I've done quite a few .DP files by combining ACM and DPed.

    Basicly, what I do is taking three captures of ACM from top, side and front views of the model at a scale of 0.10m (if it's a big plane might be 0.5m). Then, with a paint program, highlight every 1m with a different colour, to make distance counting easier. An example:

    Attachment 16150

    Now it's much easier to put all this numbers into DPed. The result:

    Attachment 16151

    This is the basic box placing part. Then comes the tedious job of assigning parts to every box (and possibly the proper effects) and the guns and loadouts.

    Hope this helps you.
