starting Sebastian Vettels cockpit

The last days I was very hard working on my RB7. The rear part is now completely finished. The four part outer bodywork is missing on each side. The front supension is also almost finished. Then I started today with the manufacturing of some cockpit parts such as Seat, windscreen, display, switch panel and so on. When I “laminated” the inside of the monocoque out with carbon fibre textures, a mischance happend. A small drop of glue got on the polished side pod surface – now there is a mark – that hurts.

Beam wing and suspension links are mounted.

The rear light.

At the bottom left, you can see the new heat shield.

The finished rear end.

The front suspension - the links are missing.

The inside of the monocoque, "laminated" with carbon fibre textures.

The shape of the drivers seat is there.


That really hurts.

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.
