A 1/72nd scale "ship Mill" ...scratchbuilt. In common use from late roman to the 19th century but very common in the middle ages

Amazing work, I really like the details, looks very much like a plastic injection kit (and that in a good way). Where did you hear about this type of mill? this is the first one I have ever seen.

Thanks
I found it on the Low tech Magazine web site while looking for something entirely different
http://www.lowtechmagazine.com/2010/11/b...ging-mills.html

The design (of mine) is "generic" as there seems to have been a lot of different types but more or less all of them a boat with a house and a wheel attached. Medieval Ship mills in a painting from 1411, The Martyrdom of St Ursula at Cologne

Well no doubt that the idea is good and quite Unique that they made these type of floating devides during the medieval ages.
