Wind Mill Water Pump (Climax) – Etched Brass Kit (N)
‘Making-A-Scene Etched’ kits are created from finely etched brass components that have been designed for ease of assembly which is assisted by illustrated instructions. Assembly usually takes less than an hour and no soldering or special tools are required… just snip, fold and glue !
Wind powered water pumps have been a feature of the American Mid-West for well over a century. The earliest examples were made of wood which were eventually replaced by the mass produced steel prototype represented in this kit. Nearly 6 million of this prototype were manufactured by the Climax Corporation. This all brass kit includes the well sleeve and piping shown. The completed model measures 3” high, 1/4” x 1/4” at the base and 3/4” x 1 1/4” at the top.
