Greetings to all…

I’ve made a few windmills in the past…probably about 5 or 6 in all…but nothing like this one…

I found the inspiration for this windmill on the internet while searching for toy train “lackkie” houses to build…the original is a tin piece that was made in Germany…it has so much character…and I knew I had to build my version out of cardboard…

I’ll post progress photos and details for the blades, steps and other details later…so…take a look at the early construction photos…and download the free pattern sheets via the PDFs…please note that I am providing the patterns for your own personal, non-commercial use…thank you…

Stay tuned…

Howard…

This is a delightful design. I love the two story part of the windmill.
