Scale along a particular axis

Is it possible to scale a model on the screen along a particular axis? I want to scale the model “hbar” only along the x axis. How do I do this?

health = loader.loadModel(“hbar”)
health.setPos(Vec3(-1.2,0,0.9))
health.setScale(0.2)
health.reparentTo(aspect2d)
[/code]

not 100%shure… but how about trying
health.setScale(1,1,1.2)
or
health.setScale(1,1.2,1)
?

NodePaths have setSx, setSy, and setSz methods that scale the model along only those axes while preserving the other scale values.
