Plastic bottle windmills

Many years ago I made wire and tape windmills.
I started using plastic bottles for the blades so I could make them faster.

One day I thought, why have the wire, the bottles work on there own.

It was one of the lovely things you find.

Years ago my son Ewan made a film about how to make a plastic bottle windmill
