What a haul! Scored 4 old Danbury Mint pieces from the British Monarchy Collection for super cheap. Here's the 3 that work roughly for regular Btech. Hampton Court and Kensington Palace are about mech-scale. Windsor Castle is a little small but works in a pinch. Balmoral Castle is just about N-scale and is hiding out in my layout. I'll get pictures of it later.

Those are nice.  You're not thinking of battle-damaging those, are you?

Are you?   ???

OK, now those are cool.

I don't set an example for others. I make examples of them.

Awesome.  Are you going to use these as game terrain too?

I would take a saw to them, carefully.  Rejoin sections into smaller usable terrain pieces with street room between.  Mount the sections on plasticard turning the card edges into half roads and you end up with a modular street plan of 'retro' design buildings for Davionistas to defend.  All you then need is a load of Wobbies or Dracs (or Taurians?) to try and take them off you.

I suggest you look for 'lilliput lane" buildings. o ebay or elsewhere. Most of them are about the same scale, and have similar architecture (based off old buildings, pubs cottages, mils etc in England)

My only question is... Are those mechs allowed to move, or even cack a grin if you make funny faces at them?

In light of this, that terrain could be canon!
At any rate, I thought it was funny you got this when you did.

Might work better for Battleforce scale.  Lovely detail in those though!

I have a big ben in this scale. It does have some battledamage from a fall and like you I thought I would one day build it into a layout.  Those larger buildings are going to look great for you.  I was thinking of using it in an alternative "Future Planet of the Apes". On a beach section you would have half of big ben sticking out, rather than the statue of liberty.

This is the big ben model:
