Thanks in advance

Make two viewports, then set the scale for each one.  You can pick once on the viewport border and change the scale in Properties or go into the viewport and use the viewport toolbar to set it, or use the annotative scale at the bottom of the screen to the right, or even type it in using the zoom command.

If something I wrote can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, I meant the other one.

...and once you have them set, lock those viewports, so you don't accidentally throw the scale off by zooming inside them!
