I see no blood, how is it a vein?

My wife is always telling me off about my spellin, lol
it should read 'weathervane'
I had a few beers before I posted, but I would have got it wrong regardless..
It lights up in the dark tho...

Lights up so the wind knows if it's going the right direction at night?

Looks great! What did you make the vein out of?

All the letters and arrow are made from an old car numberplate, that's why it reflects in the dark, the spinny bit is an old gearbox shaft on a roller bearing, you can guess what the base is ?

Cheers for looking, I'll post a pic of it in the dark..
