Just set the mesh''s world transform to have a scaling in it as well. That should do the trick. The following is an example of how to scale a mesh to be twice as big as it is originally and to render it at position (x,y,z):

D3DMATRIXA16 matWorld, matTranslate, matScale;
D3DXMatrixScaling( &matScale, 2.0f, 2.0f, 2.0f );
D3DXMatrixTranslation( &matTranslate, x, y, z );
matWorld = matScale * matTranslate;
m_pd3dDevice->SetTransform( D3DTS_WORLD, &matWorld );

Hope this helps,

Scale Mesh for:
Visual Basic .NET (VB.NET) language.

' HOWTO Use:
' Create object from class to manipulate our mesh.
Dim objMeshUtilities As New DxUtilities.Mesh
' Scale mesh 2.5 times.
objMeshUtilities.MeshScale(objMyMesh, 2.5)
' Scale mesh 0.3 times.
objMeshUtilities.MeshScale(objMyOtherMesh, 0.3)

Create Class: DxEnumerations

Imports DirectX = Microsoft.DirectX
Imports Direct3D = Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D
Public Class DxEnumerations

' Custom D3D vertex format used by the vertex buffer
Public Structure MeshVertex
' Vertex position.
Public p As DirectX.Vector3
' Vertex Normal.
Public n As DirectX.Vector3
' Texture (u,v) co-ordinates.
Public tu, tv As Single
Public Const Format As Direct3D.VertexFormats = Direct3D.VertexFormats.Position Or Direct3D.VertexFormats.Normal Or Direct3D.VertexFormats.Texture1
End Structure 'MeshVertex

End Class

Create class: DxUtilities.Mesh
Imports DirectX = Microsoft.DirectX
Imports Direct3D = Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D
Namespace DxUtilities
Public Class Mesh

' Function to rescale mesh.
Public Sub MeshScale(ByRef objValMesh As Direct3D.Mesh, ByVal sngValScale As Single)
' Get access to the mesh vertices.
Dim objVertexBuffer As Direct3D.VertexBuffer
objVertexBuffer = objValMesh.VertexBuffer
' Get number of Vertices inside mesh.
Dim intVertices As Integer = objValMesh.NumberVertices
' Declare array to store mesh verticles.
Dim arrMeshVertices() As DxEnumerations.MeshVertex
' Get verticles from the mesh.
Dim typMeshVertex As Type = GetType(DxEnumerations.MeshVertex)
arrMeshVertices = objVertexBuffer.Lock(0, typMeshVertex, 0, intVertices)
' Route thru verticles and scale them (ajust coordinates).
Dim intIndex As Integer
For intIndex = 0 To intVertices - 1
' ReScale Vertex position.
arrMeshVertices(intIndex).p.X *= sngValScale
arrMeshVertices(intIndex).p.Y *= sngValScale
arrMeshVertices(intIndex).p.Z *= sngValScale
' ReScale Vertex normal.
arrMeshVertices(intIndex).n.X *= sngValScale
arrMeshVertices(intIndex).n.Y *= sngValScale
arrMeshVertices(intIndex).n.Z *= sngValScale
Next intIndex
End Sub

End Class
End Namespace
