    Very nice. I assume that's 28mm. Will there be a 15mm one at any stage?

    Very nice. I could see me using this over the Tueden League Windmill :-)

    What is the construct on the opposite side of the mill from the sails?

    Hi
    here a little pic from the back of the windmill, this shows the steering wheel.
    The sails turn on magnets and the top turns so can be rotated.

    Thanks for the photo. I haven't seen a design like that before. Near me (Eastern England, and hence not too applicable to a World at War) , small post wibdmills have a simple tiller to be pushed round by hand. Larger mills (like this) either have a simple vertical sail or a rotating vane on the cap to automatically align the cap and sails to the wind. It is an interesting and different (from my perspective) though :-)
