Well, the Sears Tower is 225 feet wide, with each module being 75 feet wide. The others I'm not too sure, though I might be able to dig up Taipei 101's dimensions.

For my models, I just eyeball it. It's not generally important. You can be off by 5 feet and no one can notice, 10 feet off and 99% of people won't notice.

My Chicago Model:

Each tower of the Petronas, at the main shaft, before any setbacks, is 55.5 metres wide. The Taipei 101 is approximately 52 metres for the main shaft.
