Hi Mike - the prop will be attached to shaped timber block to look like a generator housing which connects to a circular tower similar to the real world wind turbine [I HOPE!!]. It will have a directional fin in the shape of mount Fuji. A timber chassis will support tower and mount Fuji and will rotate to align with the wind on a pin made from a nail ground to a point and bearing on the cruciform head of a cross head screw located in the chassis at the balance point [I HOPE!!].

Regards
dave
