In this week’s featured designs, you’ll find two brand new RC car releases from Brett Turnage as well as functional models from Adafruit and Jobsmolders! For a deeper dive on Brett’s new RC cars, check out this week’s featured blog.
The Mazda 787B was the winner of the 1991, 24 Hours of Lemans, and has been a long-time favorite of Brett. The low slung look, sizable rear wing, deep dish Volk rims, and iconic Renown Livery, inspired Brett to turn this car into a functional 3D model.
The second of Brett’s new designs is a Mclaren MP4/6; the car that Aryton Senna drove to the 1991 F1 Championship. An F1 fan reached out to Brett asking if he could re-create the design, and Brett was excited to take on the project.
This Mini Synthesizer by Adafruit requires only a few components and makes for a great beginner or intermediate electronics project. It does require one simple CNC fabricated component, and if you don’t have access to a machine, look into outsourcing.
