fitting front brake cooling ducts and begin with manufacturing of the head protection

Today I’ve only a very small update, but the list of missing parts gets smaller and smaller…

As you can see, the head protection is fitted and the not finished engine heat shield also.

The front brake ducts are finished. Not perfectly but they're okay.

The seat with its straps is competed.

As you can see, after a few stop-goes, I managed it to make the seat removable.

If there's somebody, what I can't believe, who haven't seen a Formula 1 seat from behind, here is one. 😉

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.
