RB7s underbody under progress

The work on the underbody is going on. It’s more work behind it, as you may expect. The reason for that is certainly, that I want to make the underbody as original as possible. There is still much work in front of me. When I began to built it, I thought, I won’t finish the underbody with a clear lacquer, because on pictures, it appears very beamless. Now, when I fitted it on the car, I thought, it may be better to do it.

About half of work is done now on the underbody.

The exhaust end pipes are already fitted. I also try to imitate the burning on it. I burned them with a lighter. It looks not bad. I’ll also try this on heat shieldings and the main exhaust.

The famous exhaust system, which blows the diffuser - also at my car.

I also started and finished the work on the diffuser today. There's not much to say about it. The RB6 diffuser was much more interessting to built. The flat underbody with the diffuser begining at the rear axle center line.

On this shot, the vanes and the starter slot, which is also blown by two air ducts at the top side of the underbody, are visible.

At the end, a rear view with fitted underbody.

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.
