connecting RS27 with RB7 monocoque

Today, I mounted the Renault V8 engine. I’m not very satisfied with the engine mounting points. But there are no pictures of them, so nobody can say something bad about them.

The Monocoque with fixed engine.

The mounting of the Renault motor is not 100% original. To get an adequate stability, I had to do the fixing with metall wire. On the gold foil, the glue wouldn’t be enough strong to give the engine the needful hold. But I add that fixing that low, that you couldn’t see it anymore.

Engine and monocoque are waiting for connection.

The watercooler is also connected to the RS27. Of the oil-circuit, there are no usefull pictures of the attachment of the engine. I will improvise them…


About paulsf1

My name is Paul Bischof. I’m a student in mechanical engineering at the Technical University of Graz in Austria, expected finishing in February 2016. Since I was eight years old, I am building model planes out of paperboard. Since 2004 I scratch (that means building without an assembling set) Formula 1 and sportscars in 1:10th scale. The average time I need for such a car is around 400 to 700 hours within 4 to 8 months. One car has around 3500 up to 5000 single components. On this blog, you can take a look on my work and later, after my studies, hopefully you can see me in Formula 1.
