I think 2010 had an upgrade or plugin which allowed you to open sketchup files which I believe is what the format for those 3d models are. 2011/2012 has that plugin built in.
I think it was called connection extension.

You could try this.
If it's just buildings, check the Google warehouse, it has most of the models from Google Earth.

A KML is just a map reference. You need the .SKP file!

did some quick searching, you can easily import from google earth to sketchup
and then you do this:
can you tell me what model you want ?

Got it working, skip previous :
- download sketchup & install
- in sketchup: File > 3D warehouse > Get models...
- choose your model and download direct into sketchup
- File, save as...
- save as sketchup 7 file
- go to max and import sketchup file.
