Medieval Watermill With Power Function, France [LDD]

As such, this is not an actual idea, but a miniature reconstruction of a well-known bridge and watermill in the town of Moret-sur-Loing, located in the north of France. For practical reasons, only half a bridge and only one water turbine are included in the model.

The watermill is on two floors with the mill in the basement and an office at street level. Here the boss works. An old wife, an old man and a rider on horseback crossing the bridge.

The bridge is built using semicircular arches and dates from the twelve-hundredth century. Which also applies to the water mill.

This construction fits perfectly with 

If both models are built and put together, you get a fantastic medieval environment where everything fits together.
The model can also be combined with

Building technology:
SNOT technique has been used for the foundation. The bridge and foundations are constructed as units with which they can be put together in several different ways using Technique pins. The bridge is completed with a slope, which is also constructed using SNOT technique.
Several new Lego City Road plates have been used for the construction of the bridge's roadway.

The watermill wheel is built with two water wheels built inside each other. The wheel is driven by a motor and controlled using the Power Function. The Power Function can be switched on and off by opening door in the basement and pressing the green button on the battery box.

Number of elements are 2538 including 6 minifigs, as well as some different animals and butterflies.

The images are created in LDD, Lego Digital Designer, with the highest possible quality settings and with the highest possible resolution. All new tampon print decorations are my own creations and are created in Microsoft PowerPoint and adapted to LDD standard size.
