      Fantastic looking structures, outstanding very well built Log Cabin, and that turntable is the best constructed and weathered turntable around!

        Thank you Louis, but it’s a lot of work for one person, especially on this scale.

          Hello to you

          Today I undertake the construction of an 1880 US wind mill.

          The set is made of Samba, coffee and balsa twirls and measures 18x18 at the base and 60cm high.I specify that I did not try to make some prototypical, but a coherent thing Now I will start making the blades.

          To be continued

            Nice looking tower build. Now I'm interested in how you will be making the blades.

              In order to satisfy Louis' curiosity, here is the manufacture of the blades

              Manufacturing of the "spider" support for the blades

              A 4mm axle, two 25mm diameter washers and 16 tubes, 2mm, length 62mm.

              I first welded the tubes on a washer with its axis according to my template, then inserted the second washer and heated everything at the gas camp so that the weld is distributed everywhere






              Welding of the blades cut from a 0.5mm brass sheet. The set has a diameter of 16cm

                  Good morning all

                  Continuation of the program with the assembly of the rotary assembly, the photos speak better than a big speech but if you have questions, I will answer them

                      Wow, that is fabulous looking. What a great job with that. Drilling those holes after the blades were in place must of been tough to do.

                        Outstanding.

                        I went back to page 1 and noticed the beams in your roof. They are quite unique and very interesting construction.

                          Very nice work on all of your structures and turntable. I don't see any toilet paper in the privy! Must be bought out by the hoarders.. or maybe you could use a phone book.. soft pages...

                            Thank you Louis, Frank and Rich

                            The rest of the rotary assembly, I did not do anything prototypical (too bad for purists) because despite the docs, I did not understand how this bazaar of the time could work with chains, rods and the like. I therefore contented myself with a more simplified representation.
