carbon-fibre coating the monocoque

After I’ve finished the cockpit, I started coating the whole shape of the monocoque with the carbon-fibre texture. Almost the whole monocoque is unpainted, so later you’ll see a hell lot of CF. Only the front roll over structure and the top are painted. I also started with the underbody, I need that for dimensioning the engine (-block).

Carbon fiber acts! This looks insanely good. At the front roll over structure you can see the cuttings for the door hinges.

Viewed from the rear. For sure the whole holes for diverse wires, fuel system, engine mounting points and so on are missing.

A short close-up view in the cockpit with the mounted headrest.

First picture with the underbody. That car gets insane wide…

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.
