assembling of Seb’s steering wheel

I welcome everybody to the new year and starting the first RB7 update in 2012.

The wheel hubs are mounted, the radio-and telemetry antennas are fitted and the steering wheel is attached. Look by yourself.

Somebody likes to do a test sitting session?

For sure, my steering wheel is demountable like as it is at the big original.

As you can see, the steering wheel has a diameter of around 28mm. The wheel itself consists out of 73 parts. Stupidly I've had no more space for the last button on each side - so the driver couldn't drink and has also no reverse gear (okay he has a gear, but no operation device :)).

I've disclaimed to do a modelling of threads for the nuts at the hubs.

The rear covers weren't that difficult as I've expected it. The shape is not 100% right and the openings for the lower wishbones are both too big. But I'm satisfied with the covers though, because they mostly disapear more or less under the suspension arms.

My car won't be finished before the presentation of the new RB8. I expect a closing -off somewhere in march.

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.
