Does anyone know a source of plans for a working windmill? I would like to build one. I have just finished building a 7:5 " scale steam locomotive and need a new project. Thanks, John

Do you mean a windmill like this? http://www.aermotorwindmill.com/ . These are still being made in San Anselmo, Texas. That's a nice small city -- it has a small park with ponds containing water lilies from around the world. Worth a trip to see the lilies, and the windmill factory.

The Dutch are famous for their windmills:
Pity they also happen to speak Dutch...

Just how big of a model were you thinking of?
Windmills like this are used all over Alberta to pump water.

Chasing windmills, are we? :D :D
(Reference to Don Quixote, if you don't recognize above picture.)
Also, where are the pics of the locomotive? :rolleyes:
And lastly, not to ruin the atmosphere completely; welcome to the HSM forum!
We hope to hear more from you.
