Default Scaling up a Pietenpol Aircamper, or Pober Junior Ace


I would like to build one of these, but I'm a big fella. 6'2, 250#. I require more useful load. I am generally from the school of "Don't mess with a good thing", and would like a well proven design, with a relatively low build time.

I have looked far and wide, and what I want is a Piet, but just a little bigger. My thoughts are to get a set of plans, transliterate them into CAD, and then scale the whole thing by 1.125 making a 1 1/8th scaled Piet.

What are the hazards of such and endeavor?
