finishing RB7s underbody

Today I finished the underbody. There’s not much to say about that. Fitting the plank, screws and glueing the heat shield at the rear. The guys at RB will swear about me, that I present all their aerodynamical secrets – okay, meanwhile, after Monza it’s not a secret any more (Although I built the floor long before Monza). When the car is finished I’ll add a little bit of wear to the plank for looking a bit more realistic.

I don't know exactly if the heat shield also covers the diffuser fins.

The fins at the diffuser are a little bit tilted, maybe I'll rebuild them.

At the front, you can see the break between the front and the rear part of the plank for the movable splitter - the so called T-Tray solution. I'll also add a little bit of wear to the plank.

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.
