i saw Paul B's RB6 and 7 and the guy inspired me to actually make the F1 car i designed. now please remember people that this is the first time i'v played with cardboard and glue since i was in junior school about 15 years ago lol. anyways people hope you enjoy looking at the picture and follow the progress of it and i'd love to hear what you think good or bad.

Looking good! That's pretty small, must be very fiddly.
I've found a way of ducting exhaust right to the diffuser edge like in 2011 and created a new wheel fastener that could allow sub 2 second pitstops see them here --> My 2013 F1 Concept Project

with the second picture you can see the basic shape the body is going to take on. i'v got the exhaust position drawn up and cant wait to see it all finished :D

a few more pics with the engine cover on, it needs a few tweeks to neaten it up and the top bit of where the helmet rests needs finishing

heres a little bit blury view of the sidepod

Image

and finally the new rear wing endplates, i had to remake the rear wing as i made the last one too small, so heres the endplates. i was thinking of making the beam wing a funky shape but i havn't drawn it up yet.

Very nice man! Interesting to see you built something i had discussed in the RB8 thread of using U pods with exhaust mounted at the end of the pods aimed over the tires to try and force air away from the spining tires.
