Opening a .pdf in GIMP. A question of scale.
I have a .pdf of a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter papercraft (it's 1:33 scale). I want to scale it up and use it as a prop for my 1:6 dolls/figures, so I want to open the file as images in GIMP and scale them up 550%, edit, and print.

My question is, if I open the .pdf as images in GIMP, will they be the exact same size they were on the .pdf? I need to make sure it's the exact same size it was on the .pdf so when I scale it up 550% it will still be the exact proportions of a 1:6 Blackhawk.
