Some of the FG buildings have a scale listed. Most I believe are in the 1:60 range to go along with the WSAM scale of the aircraft. Some where on this forum is a scale conversion chart. I think. I'll look around some.

Okay, so I couldn't find it on this forum, but I did find it on paper modelers. Of course, it requires you to know the scale of the building you're using, but you could probably get it pretty close.

Most of the FG buildings are done to HO scale, which I believe is 1/86.
