A very successful modelling year, with a publication of my work in F1 Racing magazine takes its end. I want to say thank you to all my followers on paulsf1 and wish you a happy new year! Stay following!
The last update in 2011.
The brake discs are fitted, only the mounting bell is missing.
Also the barge boards are fitted to the monocoque.
The raw scaffolding of the steering wheel. It's width is only 28mm.
The shoulder straps. Per FIA definition they have to be 3 inches (76,2mm) width.
The seat is finished, but I'm waiting for the blue textile straps for finishing the FIA straps for removing the seat.
I have omited the padding, because I didn't find a adequate material (okay, I did not look for one). But the carbon fibre texture got that well at this non developable shape, that it don't disturb me.
The inserted seat.
At first, I wanted to make the seat removable, but it would be nearly impossible to get the belts through the holes in the seat. So i tend to mount the seat irremovable.
And again the seat.
