I have decided to design a Vestas V100 wind turbine in 1/50 scale as there is a windfarm close to where i live with over 30 turbines. The tower height of the turbines is 80 meters and the length of the blades are 49 meters. In 1/50 scale terms the tower height would be 1.60 meters tall and the blades 98cm in length. The overall height of the turbine when errected will be 2.58 meters.
Here are some of the images of the designed model. Printing of the model will begin in the new year.
hu postete Wow -- great work! You plan for a Windpark?! ...as you already designed 3 machine houses!

Thank you. Currently no as i just have enough space for 1 turbine. The left nacelle was the first design, made a couple of alterations made the 2nd, more alterations and the right nacelle is the final design.
Shackles that connect the ropes to the lifting yoke are 3d printed and surprisingly strong. Nacelle has been suspended from the crane for the day while I was at work. Weight of the Nacelle and Hub is 335 grams.
