Just like the big wind turbines...


You will need some super glue and some basic plastic soldering skills.

Glue tower pieces together. Top and bottom may need a little shaving.

Heat up blade pins with a lighter (do not set it on fire!) and press them into the three blade sockets on the hub.

With tin snips cut a trim nail down to around 1" including the head.

Heat up the head of the nail with a lighter. When hot, press it into the bottom hole on the hub and sort of carve out a little cavity for the head to sit in.

While plastic is still malleable press in on the plastic around the nail neck to keep the nail head inside the hub. Make sure the hub spins freely on the nail.

Heat up other side of the nail and place it into the forward hole on the nacelle. Hold steady until plastic cools.

Heat up the ends of the tower to place in bottom of hub and base.
