I have the week off from work, and yesterday I built Gustav's Mill -- the Archistories Windmill 'Marienfehn' in Z scale (1:220).
The kit went together easily since the parts are so accurate. The instructions are clear with good drawings.
The motor does work with a 3V battery holder. There are two diodes included to slow down the revolutions per minute (from 33rpm to 15 rpm according to the instructions). Those will be added later once I get the display table built for it. The motor has a quiet wind-up toy sound that's rather satisfying. I plan to make a modest landscape for the display, too.
There's a movie of it in action on my blog.
