neilth is on a distinguished road
The first model I have created is a course model of the air flowing over the solid rotor. The second model I have created is of one vane (i.e. 1/72 of the complete rotor) of the rotor and the air inside it. Both of the models work successfully independantly. How should I go about combining the two?

You could replace the solid rotor with the hollow rotor you have already generated. Join them using GGI interfaces and you will hopefully be able to reuse the existing meshes.
