Gustav's Mill - introduction

by brae  

One of the reasons I cut new walls to make Watson Mill larger on the inside was to accommodate Gustav's hobby.  Turns out, in addition to avid reading, he's a miniaturist.  :D  In researching mini mills, I found this delightful Archistories Windmill "Marienfehn" in Z scale.

Here's a penny to show the size of the pieces.  There's excellent detailing as well.  The pieces seem to be made from some kind of chipboard material, and they recommend the use of wood glue.  There are 10 pages of illustrated instructions, but it seems fairly straightforward.

There's even a motor for it.  Yep, the sails go roundy roundy.  :D  It's a DC 3V motor, so this should work with a battery holder and switch.  I can build a work table to disguise the switch underneath.

For now, I have four of the parts sheets pressed flat since they curled a bit in the kit envelope.

I knew I’d like Gustav! Books and Minis!
So tiny…that the littlest windmill I’ve seen. I love that the sails will turn. :D
