It was a Saturday afternoon at Bonaparte's place and for once I didn't feel like building a ship.
So I decided to build a windmill instead, as it was on my long to do list.
It has been made ready for a motor, which Boney didn't have (yes, an Afol with no motors :hmpf:) and some other parts are missing as well. I'd still say the model is about 85% finished.
Of course Boney is Belgian, so I had to make it extra Dutch with some red white and blue flowers and flags. :grin:

All in all it was a great weekend, as always. Here's the pictures;

I'll use parts of the design to create a mill for Greenville, I hope you like it.

Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

The build a frigate tutorail!

Very nice windmill indeed 'CGH', though it looks very castle era like ? :wink:
Unless it fits in with a modern rural landscape ? :wink:

Nice build. :thumbup:
I like the base of the windmill, smart use of parts in that. I may have to remember that for my own windmill.
You may want to change the scenery a bit since this type of windmill was most used to keep the polder dry. Or you just made the exception to the rule. :grin:

This looks great, especially for an afternoon build!
My favorite detail are the small windows in the base of the windmill.
