After a few motivation problems, here the next update:
Yesterday, I began to build the frontwing. At first a overall view. As you can see, the whole part is covered with carbon-fibre textures. At the middle section, you can see two metal wires coming out of the wing. That's a new "invention" of me to reinforce the critical connection between nocecone and wing.
The side plates are a little work of art. As you can see, the top flap flows out of the sideplates. The side plate is a little bit thinner above the flaps, but more than 1mm (concerning the reglement). To built that without a visible cutting edge was very tricky, but it worked very well (after several hours of trying, thinking and so on
). For understanding of dimensions, the side plates hight is only 19mm, the width of the top flaps is 23mm.
A short comment to the underside: One baffle plate (i only know the german word exactly, but hope you kno what I mean) is missing.
With the beginning of the third plate I'm not very satisfied. Maybe I'll rebuild it.
First impressions with nosecone and wing fitted at the car:
To the end, a comparison with the RB6 wing. The RB7 is for sure more complicated but also more elegant...
That's it for the moment, thanks for watching.
