The six wheeled Tyrrell P34 was the first F1 model I built back in 2006, using a mix of Technic and System LEGO parts. Since then, I have made several F1 cars covering about three decades, from late 60s to early 90s, all in 1:8 scale. Due to the small front wheels of the P34, the compact front suspension of the first model was working, but was not as accurate as I would have liked. That’s why last year I decided to evaluate the possibility of building a detailed and fully working front suspension for this iconic car, taking advantage of all newest parts introduced by LEGO, as well as old and discontinued ones to reproduce this state of the art model in a bigger scale. In fact, the 22969 rims and 32296 big tires that I’ve always used as rear wheels in all previous models, in this case are acting as the “small” front wheels, in a fully independent double front suspension. There is a single central anti-roll bar that reacts to the displacement of the two front axles. At the same time, the steering rack is directly acting on the front axis, while the movement is then transferred to the second axis through a pivot and levers. As a result, the overall model scale went up to 1:5, and this lead to a completely brick built rear wheel concept, with an internal rigid frame to keep the cylindrical shape and support the model weight without distortion, and an outer layer of rubber elements. In such a large model, I decided to also include some RC features: XL-motor for driving, servo-motor for shifting, M-motor for steering. All of them are controlled with a powerful BuWizz unit. The compact 4 speed gearbox is a reinforced mod of Paul J Boratko III’s solution with the new rotary selector, while the shift drum is based on the concept MK II of P-LEGO, adapted to stay within the side prismatic fuel reservoir. Obviously, inside the cockpit, the steering wheel rotates while steering, and the shift lever moves as well while shifting. Other features are the various brake cooling systems (through NACA intakes and hoses for the front axis, and dedicated ducts for intermediate and rear wheels), a 90 degree V8 fake engine with 0.5 stud pitch between banks, air intake cones, two side water cooling radiators, three oil cooling radiators (two paired with water ones, one on the rear wing support), rear suspension with big 11.5L shock absorbers and stabilizing bar, side windows in the cockpit, and more.

This is my first official commissionary project where the request was to build a replica of the Renault Sport F1 2027 visionary concept. It was designed and built in a little over a week in my spare time due to a very tight deadline. There was a good chance that this model would be produced in small numbers so I couldn't use extremely rare parts that were hard to get and expensive. Because it has been exclusively designed for this commissionary project I'm not allowed to share any type of instructions.

NZ Studio. Projects, ideas, developments. Greetings to all the techies! I decided to create a topic in which I will share projects on which work, as well as ideas and technical solutions. At the moment I am working on the project of the Formula-1 Bolide. The decision to build it appeared after the creation of the V8 engine with working valves https://youtu.be/TpeWs-SnaRc as well as after seeing the latest innovations in formula 1. Based on the concept of modern cars with hybrid, turbocharged V6 engines. This is the first car from the technique that I build. Unfortunately, not all ideas can be realized, and there will also be some inconsistencies with real prototypes. The main task was the technical saturation and similarity both externally and internally with real prototypes. During the creation was the idea to make a steering wheel with clutch controls and gear changes, but due to the large size of the switches, it's not possible to implement the lego. It was very cool, if a micro switch was developed to accommodate which there was enough room in 1 stud with a micro connector for laying the wire. At the moment, about half of the work is completed. I started building about a year ago. Development is proceeding slowly. Many nodes will be altered. The exterior design and front end are still rough sketche. The model will implement: 1) Control from the console or from the model itself. 2) Working suspensions with anti-nod shock absorbers. 3) Brake fluid system on all wheels. 4) Working clutch. 5) engine 24 valve V6 turbo. 6) DRS system. 7) Rear light signal + light bulbs on the steering wheel and cockpit + imitation heating brake discs. 8) Transmission 4 steps 9) Differential lock. 10) Removable steering wheel And other interesting chips Gradually I will share reviews of ready-made nodes and elements. I present some old photos and some photos of the creation of the bolid. Now I finish the instruction on the plane https://youtu.be/-06_VufU2V8 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20161009_231236 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170425_224347 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170503_152539 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170620_065704 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170622_230526 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170622_230608 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170623_224657 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170623_224732 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170623_224742 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170623_224812 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170623_224920 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170623_224935 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr IMG_20170703_180434 by Nikolay Zubov, on Flickr
