I have found a way to enlarge a small 1 page model to a 2 page one. I print out the small one page model on plane paper and cut into two sections. Then I scan both and use a program called Irfan View to enlarge them. I did it on the P-40 Flying Tiger small model and it came out OK.

Was there a lot of pixelation? Sometimes that can happen if the base file is a lower resolution.

Since he's scanned the image first I doubt pixelation would occur, even if the base file were at some low resolution. The scan would be its own, presumably high resolution, and the software magnifying it would use an interpolation algorithm to maintain that resolution. My two cents.
