Ha!  I found the French Wizard!  You know how I feel about this project because I'm sending you my unopened C.H.B Woodsman kit with saws, etc.

I am still looking for a very good solution for wire mesh fence. On a large scale, this is so simple, but unfortunately not in the model.

When I posted the last photo, I realised there was something missing on the bin floor. It looked like this floor was floating. Nothing for it to rest upon. So I added these joists. Looks much better I think. I still have to add a nbw here and there.

Also an opportunity to get a view from underneath.

Since the joists don't rest on the top of the piers, there needs to be some bracing to keep them and the floor from falling to the ground.

I think it is quite unlikely that they would use  that type of joints on a utilitarian structure like this.

So I think Lawvton has a point. 

I also think that on the whole this structure look a little unstable. There is no bracing on the long side under the chute, and the short sides have only one diagonal bracing, to have a stable building you need cross-bracing. But I guess you could find several examples of prototype buildings that suffer problems like this. Not all real-life craftsmen were first class!

This said, the model looks smashing and the modelwork is top-notch.
