DON'T scale your title blocks!

Set your title block to be the right size when plotted on that size paper.

Create your drawings in "free space" (no title block) and draw at 1:1.

When it's time to create final drawing use XREF on titleblock and scale drawing at that point.

Lettering on titleblock will still be "normal .125" size and everything will be lovely. Additionally if you update the "free space" drawing the scaled titleblock drawing will update automagically.

Draw *everything* at 1:1. When you start to combine drawings all the piece parts will *FIT*.
