fixing airbox and more electronic equipment

Today I’ve fixed the airbox.

The fully laminated airbox.

The fuel injection system will be complete covered by the airbox. If you are a dentist, you maybe could look at it with your stomatoscope through the airbox inlet. 🙂

The mounted airbox. You also can see the electronic line for the camera above the airbox coming out of the air inlet.

The vanes in front of the sidepods are also finished and pre-assembled.

The picture is bluffing. These vanes are only 42mm long.

In real, they are fixed inseparable with the underbody. I will fit them later, because, I'll maybe damage them, when i'm working on the car.

The right hand sidepod is now as well as the left one filled with its electonic components.

Behind the radiator, you can see the support to the underbody. The car need that, to assure, that the underbody will not flex too much in the race.

I also mounted the first parts of the rear suspension assembly. More precisely the torsion bar spring with its housing and the deflexion lever. But they are too small and too well packed between the underbody and the gearbox, that I couldn’t take a well focused photo.

Finally, here are two pictures of the complete car.

The car seem to look very well. But there are still missing very much parts, for example the exhaust system, front and rear suspension, the whole hydraulic lines, rear wing, nose, engine cover or cockpit interior equipment.

Good shoot from above.

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.
