RS27 in progess and an insight of my method of operating
It’s looking that the RS27 will be finished tomorrow. Only the oil pump and the ignition system are missing. The big carbon fiber tube at the front is the oil tank.
Here are a few drawings, with a little description to show you my method of operating
At first, a two-part a3 general drawing of the RB6. I generated it in may 2010 for building the RB6. The drawing shows the car in it’s presentation configuration with old RB5 front wing and top side lying exhausts. I draw this with help of the FIA technical regulations (you could download them at http://www.fia.com, in regulations block) and a few pictures – and surely a little bit of know-how.
Here you could see the gearbox of the RB6 with suggested diffuser and beam wing in 1:10. At the rear the rear light housing is visible. Around the gearbox drawing there are a few hand adumbrations. For example at the right middle, you could see the front bulkhead of the engine without dimensioning. In manufacturing such a car, i draw about 800 to 1000 such pictures, maybe more. You have to remember, that such a car has around 3500 parts – plus minus a few hundret.
The next was the first drawing, i made for the RB7. It shows the single monocoque in 1:10th scale. That drawing is the most important of the whole car, because, later everything will be addicted to the monocoque. If there is a mistake somwhere in this drawing, like at my RB6, the whole car is unserviceable.
On this picture, i calculated the cross section of the engine – with help of a Renault publiced picture of the [url=http://www.autoevolution.com/images/news/fia-to-announce-new-f1-engine-rules-next-week-27689_1.jpg]RS27-2008[/url]. Around that, you could see again some smalll drawings and calculations.
At the end, a typical working sheet of me. It’s full of small drawings of individual phasouted parts. Certainly there is nothing conforming to any drawing standard, all these sheets I throw away after a day.
