Since I posted the bit on the gin pole(in the old format)  I've not posted much but have been busy in the shop.  So I thought I'd add a bit about the tool shed and the shelter that are in the works. All are in 7/8ths.
Here's the finished Gin pole.


The tool shed.


And now the shelter. The shelter is going to be painted tomorrow and then the floor boards and roofing will go on.

Fantastic. Nice to see the crane thing again, your shed, and the progress on the new shelter. 
Nice to work in a scale where wood is wood, nails are nails, and tweezers are for best left in the bathroom eh? ;)

I wonder if you need to explain what 7/8ths is, in case newer members don't know.

Richard,
They will indeed go outside.  The buildings are strong enough.
Pete, perhahs you are right.
Here's a picture of a 1:20.3 person next to a 1:13.7 person (7/8ths)  7/8ths makes the 45mm track gauge scale out to 2 foot gauge.
