Windmills originated in the 12th century in Europe and were initially designed to harness the energy from the wind to power the grinding stones in grain mills. The energy harnessed is said to be so effective that it took until the industrial era to replicate the power generated by the windmills.
The Metal Earth series are amazing 3D models to build from laser cut steel sheets.
As a souvenir with a difference (or inspiration to save for a world trip!), a reminder of family history or just a beautiful object with the satisfaction of knowing you built it yourself, why not start a collection? Incredibly detailed, these fascinating models are definitely a challenge to build. Care and patience are required, but the results are well worth the effort. Long-nosed pliers are also recommended (not included). This one is of medium difficulty and takes about an hour to complete.
Recommended for ages 14 years and over. Due to their small size, Metal Earth models should be kept out of the reach of children under three years of age.
