working on R18 electronics

After a long time without building, now here’s the new update. What’s new? I began working on the cars electronics and other items in the cockpit area.

The car is closed now.

Here you can see the dashboard panel. It has 110 parts. For comparison, here’s a picture of the real one: Click
Beneath you can see an electronic unit. I guess it’s the ECU (Engine Control Unit).

A pipe of the ventilation system.

The first parts are fitted inside the cockpit. Battery, toolbox, ECU and the dashboard panel.

A few from the drivers side.

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.
