Audi R18 TDI underbody finally finished

The last two days I was busy with lacquering the underbody. The fact, that my big last paint job (the monocoque) dates back somewhere in June 2012, was responsable, that the underbody didn’t got perfect because I was a bit too less patient. A few times, the lacquer runed away a bit and made a bit an irregular surface. But not much.

If someone detects a difference between this and the real underbody (except the size) the person should tell me. ;)

Regarding the heat shieldings I have almost no reference. In my opinion, also the area under the radiators should be heat protected, but at my pics of the engine cover, there is no heat shielding at the radiators area.

With the heat shields I covered the area under the engine and the lower line to the water radiator.

About paulsf1

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.
