Any of the office stores can do that for you. Be aware though that stock sizes don't necessarily scale up the same. If the original model called for 1/4 inch spar strips for example, 1/2 inch strips may not be appropriate for the bigger plane.

The advantage to using Dennis,"HemiKiller", is he can scan the plans and re-arrange
the components to fit on either 36" wide or 42 " wide paper. Whereas going to a print shop
they will just scan then and enlarge to the size paper they have and you will not get a very
good image and also when they turn the plan to enlarge the side that didn't print, there could
be a very slight difference in scaling. If you want a first class job, at a reasonable cost I highly
recommend Dennis, he is not only an expert at printing plans, he is also a model builder.
