About this creation




































Here's a video showing the windmill in action. Well, "action" might be a bit of a stretch. Here's a video of the windmill lazily whirling along.



Despite its size, this was a rather whimsical build. More of a surreal tablescrap than anything. Still, I enjoyed building it, and I finally got some more use out of my Power Functions. Thanks for viewing, and let me know what you think!

umm where is the farmers face? besides that (slightly disturbing) fact, its a very good build, and has some realism to it like the windmill having a engine to maitnence.

This is insane! I'm loving the whole idea of putting a farm in space. I suppose it not far fetched but still! Also, I would love to here your thoughts on an idea of mine. I appreciate it Cody! http://mocpages.com/moc.php/312579

Quoting Steve The Squid What sort of secondhand store is this that you keep referencing? I've always had trouble finding cheap legos.
Goodwill mostly. St. Vincent De Paul's has some occasionally too. And for new legos that are cheap, try TJ Maxx. Their selection isn't good at all, but they almost always have a few sets for cheap.

I love all of the little details! I love how the power functions adds to the look as well as motorizing the creation, it fits in really well.

Quoting Steve The Squid Lol, I see some aweful childhood sticker application on those solar panels :D Great job, the detailing is fantastic!
I can at least say it wasn't me who put the stickers on. I got the pieces at a secondhand store. :p
Quoting El Barto ! Nicely done! I'm assuming there's a stash of spam and ammo in the basement...
Oh, that goes without saying!

Epic! This looks awesome! Even without the cliff you were planning it looks awesome! The windmill design is great and the overall look of this diorama is boss! Not too sure I like the face of the farmer but really other then that I have nothing bad to say about this! Nice work ;)

Nice! I like the many stylizations you put in; such as the curvy windmill blades and the minifigure's head

Nice work. It would be interesting to breakdown all the electricity/energy creating sources the farm used.

Quoting Jake Almondy Very neat, i'm definitely liking your motorcycle vehicle. Can the windmill blow over the mini-figure when it's power function is turned on?
Unfortunately, no. The windmill doesn't really disrupt the air that much, considering its shape and slow speed. Plus there's a stud on the roof that holds the figure on. ;)

Quoting Deus Otiosus Well, the tablescrap aspect is again noticable, with the hardly organized architecture. Clean buildings are generally better.
True, but I wasn't about to go bricklink forty or so macaroni bricks. :p

Quoting LEGO Family Well, it is what it is ... Really those are functional solar panels ? ... Where do one get those ? ... Overall a steady build there ! :)
Thanks! The "solar panels" come from an old Mars Mission set, I think. They aren't functional, but they certainly look it, don't they? :) The windmill is powered by a battery box that is housed in the light gray building.

Interesting build and theme, and a somewhat original looking windmill. The farmer doesn't look too healthy though ;)

Awesome! I like how you included power functions, and the textures and colours on the buildings are superb. Great work!

Now just incorporate my (prototype) power supply and you'll have INFINITE POWER!!!

Awesome. What if there's no wind or solar rays, would there be enough power stored up to last a while?

Nice! The windmill blades are elegant and there is a quaintness about the entire build. Good job! This is certainly better than the average table-scrap.

Very nice! I like the blades and the bedroom floor!
  February 22, 2012
Wow, what a great theme! Yes, it's whimsical too! But... ah... was that a power company vehicle I saw in the background? Just kidding! Oh, and the architecture is very much like the experimental self sufficient houses/complexes you see out west and at some universities whose engineering departments are studying alternative power! :)
