188. Sorry, doesn't prove a thing either way.
Everything depends on properties of the buildings that are not trivial to reproduce in a scale model. Not that it's impossible, but it is not trivial.

It doesn't look like you made much effort to accurately reproduce the buildings' strength, loads etc.

All that you prove is that it's possible to create a scale model that does not collapse. Likewise it would be possible to create a scale model that does collapse.

In fact it would be possible to build a complete building that would collapse due to damage and fire. Not that it would make any sense to do so, but your scale model doesn't prove that the buildings would not collapse under those circumstances.
