Turn Wheel (like one on a submarine door)

Im getting creative, and I would like to know if it is possible to create a rotatable wheel that will zoom in/out on a movieclip. Basically I would like to make a wheel somewhat like one on a submarine/ship door. The user would turn the wheel by clicking it and draging the mouse in a circle motion…the turning motion would zoom the target mc in or out depending on the direction of the rotation…is this possible? I think it would be cool to implement…any links to something like this would be greatly appreciated too
