Initial sketches to visualize the concept and explore different ways to hold the turbine.

In order to be taken seriously as a project, at least one 3-D rendering must be present.

Detail of the coils that make up the stator. The splicing method employed is known as the "Western Union Splice," in case you were wondering.

A photo from an early testing stage of wind turbine construction to make sure everything works as planned. The stator has not been created at this stage and is therefore not pictured.
