repairing and pre finishing the engine cover

After the presentation of the new RB8, tomorrow we’ll get a first indication if he’s as quick like the 7, my own RB7 goes on straight to the finish line.

Beside manufacturing a new rear part for my engine cover, I’ve add a few labels, screws and so on. Now missing are only three sponsor/partner labels (RENAULT, SIEMENS, Platform Computing) and the wheels with their nuts.

Manufacturing the bulls label was a very ropy work.

But the work paid off for it.

Looks nice. Only the bulls head is a bit bumpy. 😀

The final brake covers are also fitted.

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.
