Copy the image to paint, click on “image” and select stretch/skew and change the horizontal and vertical values to 200% (or more, just do it evenly).

Then look at the print preview, is that what you want?

Make it bigger until it does and then print it out and line up the image and you will have it on four sheets.

If the one in post 7 is 4 times bigger than the one from post 4, why does it need to go on 4 sheets

You may have to play with it a little and enlarge the individual sections until each one does fill a sheet.

That is of course if you don’t need each piece to fit the same scale.
