cylinder block on the home straight

The last days I spent with detailing the cylinder block. It was more work than I expected. I’ve orientated on the Audi V10TDI from the R15. There are no pics or drawings from the current engine block in the net. So I can say, that I’ll finish the cylinder block the next two or three days before starting the cylinder heads. And on the end of this or the start of the next week I hope I can finish the complete engine block.

Here’s an indication how big or small (that depends on your point of view) the cylinder block is.

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.
