im keeping an eye on this one too.
This is a small update on my first try to make the side intakes/skirts, Ferrari Enzo style. For now i only made 1 side to see how it comes out, I'm thinking of redoing it and try a slightly different shape
I used foam blocks and then shaped them with pneumatic rotary sander. Here are the working stages
Drawing the outlines of the intakes on the foam blocks
After cutting it to basic shape
This is more or less where i stopped
Since i didn't have any Enzo pics next to me i had to do it the way i remembered it and i guess that wasn't enough. In my opinion the rear intake came out too thin, I'll have to redo that in the upcoming days.
But now you get the basic idea on what I'm about to do. Tell me what you think
Nice work with the foam
This project looks to be very interesting
sweet! What do you do for a living?!
Aright fine, so i cant read. So sue me.
Same thing you said about the rear exhausts, but i dont think it warrents a redo (?)
thanks for the comments everyone.
olle: you could say i work in the aircraft industry and my specialization is composite materials
damouse: i guess u will just have to wait for more updates to see how it turns out
With all this said, I'm taking a risk at getting embarrassed here, but here's my 1st video worklog update. I made it pretty quickly, no fancy editing or whatsoever, but i hope to improve in the future.
Ssr love the movie. Nice to see your progress on this. it is inspiring to say the least
Time for another update guys. Been working on the front for the past 2 days. Also began working on the HDD custom made cage after giving up on finding the removable Lian Li one.
I began sculpting the lower front section using rohacell strips.
Finally threw in some foam pieces to fill in the large ares
Then came the shaping part. Weapons of choice :twisted: Pneumatic rotary sander with 40 grit sandpaper, some 80 grit sandpaper for shaping by hand and a cutting knife to cut off large chunks of material
Will continue with the front tomorrow...
Also as I've mentioned i began working on the HDD cage. The cage is designed to house 3 standard 3.5" drives and will be made of 2 parts. The internal supports and the external cage. Today i made the supports
Started off with a piece of glassepoxy (that stuff the PCB's are made from). Marked it out and cut the pieces using dremel with diamond disk attachement
After cutting and some sanding, i measured the holes placements and drilled them aswell
Testfitting... seems to be a nice fit
After cutting out the ventilation openings
Oh, yeah. The sculpting is starting to show the character of the car, now. That's looking great.
Got more work done on the front today. The sculpting is almost done. Trying to make it looks something like this...
So i started sculpting the hood.
Added some more rohacell to the lower section and started sanding it all together
And the more or less finished look. Doesn't look quite the same, sorry for that i'm not very good at this. But still looks pretty cool. kinda like some sort of transformer
Thats it for this week. Happy passover
niiiicee, great, an enzo case, just can't wait to see how will this look, great job so far
Can you get some more info on that rohacell stuff? Awesome for parts making like that, and I have an idea kicking around that it would work great for...
Hey Dima, this is coming our great. I love the sculpting work and the video update was very helpful in figuring out what is going on, videos might (or at least should be) a new trend. Good luck with the rest of it,
KayinBlack: Rohacell is a core material and it is used in wide range of applications, mostly as a sandwich material in some structures that require high strength to weight ratio. it comes in different grades and rated by KG/m^3. The ones i work with are rohacell 52, 71, 110, 170, 195. I use rohacell 52 for the sculpting, its density is very low and it sands extremely easily. rohacell can be quite expensive for someone who wants to use it for a private project
greensabbath: thanks dude . i really think you should come by and visit themodnation-forums.com, it's a new trend over there, to post video logs, tutorials and other stuff, and i just had to make one of my own to fit in
Nice video and nice progress. I have to agree with greensabbath that videos should be new trend...
looks good! nice one, althoug dont look nuthin like an enzo,
ferrari=red yours =blue
etc etc, but it looks good, scrap the ferrari enzo and continue this is a brill mod nice!
Where did you get "blue" from? And if you follow the log, it's looking less and less like a box.
Let him finish! I got a feeling it's gonna look a lot more like an enzo once he's finished.
Keep it up ssR, and I, too, like the video. Wish I had the gear to do one.
I think someone has been looking at pictures and not actually reading.
Looking good. Another ambitious project that is being done well.
