manufacturing start of the turbo charger

The cylinder block and the cylinder heads are more or less finished. A few small details are still missing. Yesterday I started with the manufacturing of the turbo charger system. The air collectors are almost finished – they lie in the paint shop at the mo, waiting for the final lacquer layer. The exhaust turbine is also finished.

The two carbon fibre air collectors, which are going to feed the cylinders with the compressed air, laying in the paint shop.

The exhaust turbine. The heat shield isn’t perfect but I’ve to live with it. The shield itself is out of aluminium foil.

The engine block in the current state.

The engine will grow a bit in height due to the turbocharger system, but the main dimensions will stay like this.

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.
