Import the model into your favorite 3D modeling package and scale then re-export...should be simple enough.

I'm not sure if this doesn't only work with 3ds max but...

Try clicking on the Scale button on the toolbar, then right-clicking on it. This pops up a dialog (in 3ds max, at least) where you can state the scaling factors (eg. 200%).

Did that work/help?

when you import it make sure you import it with the skeleton (if x-wings have them??)

to make it the size you want...dunno if this will help.
make a clone of the origional model, and then scale one of them in proportion to the other, then delete the one you dont want :)

bing an old gmax user, u cant do vehicles with it, it has no support for glms or xsi files, and u cant make it an md3 and then convert it with md3 view, cuz u loose the skeleton, so no gmax vehicles
