starting RB7s gearbox

At the moment I’m working at the gearbox housing. It took me several hours to get the approximately dimensions and the right shape. The rear crash sructure is also at work.

Later the gearbox and the crash structure will be fitted togehter and will form the rear of the RB7.

First test with gearbox for length and wheelbase of the car.

Yesterday, I read a question in a forum about my building scale. It’s 1:10th. At first it’s very easy to convert and it’s a bit unusual for modell building.

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.
