DS9 has looked tha same size in all the shows until they put a bunch of CGI ships then the scales get messed up because CGI's don't have an acurate size in comparison to real models. The station was a real model.
actually the scales became more consistant after they switched to CGI, because they could render all the ships at once. Before, when they were using models, each ship had to be composited separately, so scales were very often inconsistent. The size of Deep Space Nine is one of those things that is constantly in flux, because the model is only five feet wide and the ship models are way bigger, whenever you see a ship docked on the station in the show it is a composite shot. The models are not physically connected. Even after they made the switch to CGI, they continued to use the physical station model.
