Marcus:

How can I get a set from Mr. Federico?

You're doing quite well.

WOW, epic. And yes, I second that request for a "set" of those bits if possible. That aside, isn't this similar to
the Minidelta kit? I thought the radiator they have is also PE, it surely looks similar. I have thought about a
similar approach to the cooling fins on the 917 cylinders. Just build it up from layers of PE. I mean essentially
you can build everything up like that, which in the end, is a different way to get an "STL" type result ;)

My obvious choice for vibrating bits is usually either the dismantled vibration alarm of a former cell phone
or the rumble pack of former game controllers. As for sorting, pffff. One wire with the big slices, one with
the small slices. I would look for something like a sliding tray with the height of just one individual slice at
the bottom.
Say, take a sheet of styrene the height of a slice, cut two strips from it and place them in such a way that
you leave a channel inbetween slightly wider than the width of the diameter of the bigger slice. Cut another
strip of that same styrene, make it the width of the channel. File the leading edge into a wedge shape, lip
forward at the bottom. Cut two holes in that strip, one with the diameter of the smaller slice, one with the
diameter of the bigger one. Place the two rods with the slices in such a way, that they rest with the bottom
tip in the channel (maybe make a very very very shallow "pinprick" in the floor, so the rods allign and build
some jig to hold them vertical (U-shape styrene with holes for the upper rod ends).
Now place a third rod somewhere at the end of the channel, but with its top end just underneath the "floor"
of the channel.
Of course, the rods with the slice should be placed something like that (sliding left to right):
left: rod with big slice, right: rod with small slice, far right: deposit rod

The slots in the slider should be:
left: hole for small slice, right: hole for big slice

Now slice that wedge thing towards the rods with the slices. Small hole passes under big slices, can't pick
one up, move on to big slice, AH! fits, pick one up. Meanwhile at the back, big hole slides past big slices
and picks one up, then moves passed small slices, doesn't pick one up as slot is already filled. BINGO!

Mwahahahaha. Should be easy to do, I guess. Small amount of preparation big result. Now do I get a set
of them radiator bits for this bit of ingenuity? (*please*) :P
Cheers,
Roman

Thanks guys!

@Roman: thanks for your great explanation.Sorry for my late reaction.. I've been on a little business trip the past few days, be home late tonight, and I'll attend the Spa Classic at the Francorchamps circuit all weekend starting tomorrow morning. I'll get back to you next week!

Very nice work. The details are top quality. Your oil cooler reminds me of the Mini Delta P3 oil cooler.

Oil cooler finished! A lot of work but worth it, because it is a very distinctive feature of the car and it will be visible even with all the bodywork in place.

Despite of Roman's detailed explanation ;) I decided to merge both strands (big & small discs) manually, by picking them up with a pair of tweezers and rearranging them on a single wire. Roughly 3.000 discs + 1 second per disc = 1 hour of work. Turned out to be a little more than that... 3 hours :mrgreen:

And a few pics with the part in the chassis:

Thanks for watching!
