I am quite interested in architecture and skyscrapers, and I would make my own if Technic wasn't my main focus. I still made this
Personally I would like to see a range of skyscrapers and other structures like towers, statues, etc. all to scale, so that it would be possible to make a city with proper skyscrapers. at minifig scale (very roughly 1:50), the Chrysler building would be 6.4 metres high, which is huge!
1 stud per metre would be a scale of 1:125. this would still be quite large, even though it would be quite convenient.
1:500 sounds good, so the Chrysler building would be 64cm high. The Eiffel Tower model was 1:300 scale, which is actually bigger, but it is mostly hollow.
the only problem with this scale would be that it would be difficult to put in a lot of the floor by floor detail, each floor would be about 2 plates high, so I'm not sure what scale would be not ridiculously big, but big enough that you can still get a good amount of detail in.
I think the current ones are far too small, and they are all different scales as well. I don't own any, but might think about making some of my own once I leave uni and actually have a lot of money to spend.
