Lovely miniature version of a windmill steeped in history
This lovely looking windmill model is based on a 17th century windmill - the Chesterton windmill, which was built between the years 1632 and 1633 in the county of Warwickshire. As you would expect from the manufacturer's high-quality wooden models, a great deal of attention to detail has also gone into this model, which can be seen from the first glance at the finished end product.
Whether on the desk, in the display cabinet or in the closet: this windmill proves to be a real eye-catcher and provides additional entertainment for young and old thanks to its rotating wings.
Manually or mechanically rotating blades
The blades of the windmill can be set in motion either by the built-in rubber band motor or manually - for example by blowing lightly on them or with the active support of a fan.
If you opt for the mechanical drive, a double planetary gearbox with differently shaped gears contributes to the required speed, which can deliver a lot of wind depending on the strength.
Such a complete chain drive, which, like all the other individual parts of the windmill, is made solely of plywood, is a real special feature of this .
Since the wings of the windmill also set the transparent interior of the windmill in motion, it is just great fun to watch this imposing structure at work.
