Your model is larger so should roll comparatively easier and not nose over. Also if your wing loading is a bit lower you may be able to land at a higher AoA which effectively moves the CG further behind the wheels.
This model won't be exactly scale... enough so that it will look the part, stand off ish, anyway. The plans indicate the cg to be behind the wheels enough, the Aerodrome RC wheels are a bit larger than scale. which ought to have her roll along easier.
What is AoA?
