Windmill Open Day

20 comments
It's open day at the old windmill!

This old post-mill has been renovated by the citizens of LEGO City and is now open to visitors.

Windmill Open Day comprises just under 3000 pieces and while not strictly modular, is built to true minifigures scale. It can stand alone as a fun model with huge playability value but would also complement any town layout, modular or not.

Although there are ten minifigures in the scene, it would easily work with fewer. I've included the Tripp family (who are having lots of fun visiting the attraction), the mill-owner and the farmer, the truck driver and his hired-hand delivering sacks of wheat, and the lady selling souvenir windmill models. There's also some guy who's got himself into a spot of trouble!

Features include:
  • Moveable sails, which turn the grindstones
  • Fully rotatable super-structure
  • Removable roof, revealing the upper workings
  • Side-opening wall revealing the grinding table and stones
  • Walls that open into the roundhouse below
  • A fan-tail that spins
  • A wind vane on the rooftop
  • An old farm truck
  • Stalls selling souvenirs, bags of flour and bread
