progress on the AUDIs monocoque

The last days I did the first paint jobs on the R18s monocoque. Also the door hinges I added. Now, the most difficult thing on the monocoque is pending: the windscreen. Why the windscreen is so difficult? Because it is bent in two directions. It’s upper part (the grey one), where you can read Audi Vorsprung durch Technik (progress through technology) is something like an ellipsoid. The lower one, which is clear, has a cylindric shape and should be no problem.

At the front roll over structure, you can see the door hinges.

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.
