What scale are scale buildings?

In response to the question "When gaming a city fight, do you all try to match the scale/size of the scenery to your miniature troops:"

A true scale creates overpowering buildings and the combatants are very greatly diminished. So a smaller scale for buildings with regard to their volume, but not their floor plan, removes this diminishment. I have not tried this, but you could use the Disney World trick of reducing the height of each floor above the ground floor. See Forced Perspective.

Hence why plasticville buildings work well for 28mm.. they look fine until you open them up and try to detail the interior, when you realize they're really tiny..
