[BUILD LOG] Speed Hybrid - Formula 1 Racing Wing Scratch Build.
Hello! And welcome to my latest project.
After the success of the Jack Daniel's build i done last year, this year i wanted to do something much closed to home.
Myself and my partner are both huge F1 fans, having visited several races and tracks, it's time i brought my love/passion to my other love/passion.
What is the idea?
Basically, re-design and create a formula 1 front wing, with a PC inside!
I've sunk a good fortune into this build so far and the vast majority will be done by hand.
I do have a laser cutter, however that's a 1 shot deal and i'm not confident enough to risk the acrylic sheets.
Is it team related?
Yes! It's Based on the Aston Martin F1 Congnizant F1 team. And my fav driver, Sebastian Vettel.
So far, i've cut the plastics needed, which is 5mm thick.
Set it all together using UV glues and hot glues.
Then i primed and painted the wing.
Currently i'm adding decals and next up, it'll be working on the internals!
Color(s): Black Green White
RGB Lighting? Yes
Cooling: AIO Cooling
Type: General Build
have made a descision on cables.
There were many greens to choose from with cablemod, but ultimately felt that a solid green worked best and allows me to re-use them in another build should things change in the future.
Special thanks to my long long time partners cablemod for their support.
Finished the outside
External looks, fins, paintwork and decals are somewhat finished.
I have reached out to AM for a real Aston Martin badge (don't fancy paying over £100 for one)
Where the tape was at the edges, i removed that and tested black using electric tape.. didn't like it. Pulled that off and blended the paint to create a nice flush shine. Really makes it look 1 peice.
Cablemod cables are ordered, and they will arrive soon.
Still have lots of images of the hardware to go up.
And finally, i need to figure out how i'm squeezing all this inside the wing.
SOme parts *Cough GPU cough* are bigger than planned (Bare in mind this was being build before the new series of cards came out)
Will update soon
Thanks for looking
Finished external looks
Spent the majority of lastnight planning how on earth everything will fit inside the nosecone.
Eventually found a solution.
I give you, The Janky Redneck GPU mount :rock:
Half in, Half out.
Surprising, it fits, and does a great job.
The black back is hindged at the bottom to allow me to open the wing for access.
WIll be picking up some magnets or a latch today. to make sure it stays closed.
After that it's out to the shed to trim down and make flush :)
ALl i got so far today OH EXCEPT!!!! The motherboard is in there, but i'll show you that later ;)
Thanks for looking
