Default Scaling of dimensions

hi all,this is my first post.i do not know if this is the right place to post this or not but i am desperate for information and this forum looked really promising.

i was searching for designs for RC planes,most of them have wing span of 2-3 meters,but i want to build a 5-6 meter wingspan(yeah i know it is a lot).
the question is:is it normal just to multiply the dimension by the desired scale? i guess the answer is NO,due to change in Reynolds number and stuff but i need to know how can i do it , and what will change exactly after scaling the dimensions to a bigger scale?

Note:i checked some threads in this forum but i could not find an answer ,plz answer ...i do not want a 5-6 wingspan airplane to crash .
