glScalef() not working with glCallList?

I have a model in a list which i display susing glcalllist function but as its too big i wanted to scale it down so i tried glscalef function but i got no effect its not possible to touch a compiled list then ??? i should either resize when im reading the data and passing to opengl or do it on the modeller ???
