According to France simulation they are, maybe it'll be fixed... would be a real pity otherwise. No?

It's always been that way. Just place the Reichstag or the Brandenburg Gate on the metric grid of the FMB to see the dimensions and compare to the real size. Aircraft have the correct measures, buildings generally don't.

You didn't notice this earlier? Then just forget about it. They won't redo hundreds of objects now.

Just flew my plane just beside a small house, they seem to be right in scale...

What are the dimensions of the the grids in Kilometers?

That depends on how far you zoom in. When you're fully zoomed in the grid is 10 x 10 metres. Place a stationary aircraft on the map to get an idea of the dimensions. Small fighters like the Bf-109 have a length and wing span of ~ 10 m.

You can't say that all buildings' dimensions in FB are completely wrong. But to give you an example: The Reichstag in IL2FB has a ground plan sized ~ 50 x 75 m. The real Reichstag building in Berlin is (estimated) ~ 90 x 135 m large.
