I tried converting .BGL files and extracting models from it about a year
ago, without much luck. I had some success with simple buildings like flats
and hangars, but as soon as it got a little complicated, it failed. Don't
remember exactly which tools I used, but you might have a look at SCASM,
SCDIS and ppe IIRC.

I mailed one of the authors of a 3rd-party MSFS scenery if he could just
mail me the 3D models and textures. He refused because he didn't want the
plain models to be spread around (?!?). But anyway, you could try the same.
Maybe somebody else doesn't mind as long as he gets proper credit and it's
put under the GPL.
