    I don't think so because if you resize a tick box in design view it does not get bigger.

    Use a image box as your check box and place a hidden check box beside it which is bound to your table field. size the image box to whatever you like. Set the image box 'SizeMode' to Stretch. In the click event of the Image box load in a BMP or WMF file that is your check mark (yes, you'll have to get creative).

    Private Sub Image1_Click()
    Dim DatabasePath As String
    DatabasePath = Application.GetOption("Default Database Directory")
    If Me.Image1.Picture = "(none)" Then
    Me.Image1.Picture = DatabasePath & "\CHECKMRK.bmp"
    Me.Check1.Value = True
    Else
    Me.Image1.Picture = ""
    Me.Check1.Value = False
    End If
    End Sub

    I'll attach a check mark for ya to. Use MS Paint to change the color if you want. Using this method, you can make your check box whatever size you want and you can determine what type of check mark you want to use. You can also incorprate this method into your reports if you like.
