[MOC] Sweet red mill

Recommended Posts

This moc is inspired by an old typical Dutch mill called Kikkermolen (frogmill). Dated from 1747.

Always when I passes the mill on my bike I thought, what a sweet tiny beautiful red mill. Let's recreate it with bricks :-).

Maybe the white stud could be replaced with a red one, but otherwise very stunning build!

Looks really nice! :)

What is the X-shaped thing the lego figure is holding?

A crank to turn the mill towards (or away) from wind direction. These mills were used to 'keep dry feet' in lower places, so they are essentially wind-powered waterpumps.

Thanks.

I have to admit that it is not possible to turn the mill in a circle of 360 degrees (although technically it is possible). Because there is too much "landscape" such as water, fences and the vegetable garden it is not possible. In my lego world the landcape goes before practical issues :classic:

A re-creation to be proud of. It comes pretty close to the real world mill. And the landscaping is superb. I especially like how you managed the corner slopes of the mill's base.
Are the blades turnable?
