51. Perhaps you should read up on wind tunnel testing.
I don't think you understand exactly how building designers go about properly testing scale models in order to approximate the behavior of the proposed building. I suggest learning about dimensionless numbers as a starting point. The Reynolds number is one of the most useful, but the most well-known is probably the Mach number.

Fascinating stuff, and helpful when designing experiments like the one in the OP.
