energy Cape Wind Project in Google Earth

There is now a data file available for Google Earth that shows details of the Cape Wind Project, an offshore windfarm planned off the coast of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The data includes 3d models of the turbines, though whether they are accurately modeled I rather doubt.

Update: The creator of the model contacted me to say that the model was as accurate as he could make it with the tools he could run on his computer. In particular the hub height and blade length were accurately represented, though the cylindrical tower had to be modelled as straight sided. The datasheet on the turbines, from GE Wind Energy, provides more information.
