37mm / 48  = .77

Go with a #104 or #105 to be be a bit under

EDIT #69! Small order of magnitude error  Stick out tongue

Cool site - http://www.custompartnet.com/drill-size-chart

 

 

Thanks,

John

If actual 1mm is scale 48mm, and actual .5mm is scale 24mm, .75mm is 36mm in 1/48 scale...

go here: http://www.scalemodelersworld.com/online-scale-converter-tool.html

and then go here: https://drillsandcutters.com/conversion-chart/

 

37mm = .77mm in 1/48th scale.  Closest drill bit is just under 1/32 inch.

I realise the question is already answered, but here is a drill size chart for small drills.

FWIW, your math is 37 / 25.4 / 48 = .0303"
