With care and a lot of measuring, yes. Any incorrect measurements on the kit will be exaggerated by a factor of about 6.

You could build from plans and upscale them to your desired size. https://www.taubmansonline.com/PT%20...lans%20FDD.htm

Using the Taub plans sounds like a good idea - until you realize that you’d have to scale them up sixteen times. The chances for error/distortion would be pretty great, I doubt that Kinkos would be the way to go. Careful measurement and zero math errors required.
