2019 Formula 1 car - 42096 B Model




This 42096 B model has the correct proportions of a 2019 Formula 1 car according to the official FIA 2019 F1 regulations in terms of total width, bodywork width, bodywork height, rear wing height, front wing overhang and rear wing overhang in scale 1:9.444. The scale is based on the diameter of the tires. The wheel base corresponds to the Mercedes F1 W10 car which is a whopping 49 studs!

  • Steering in Ackerman geometry with working steering wheel
  • 4 wheel independent suspension.
  • Tiltable engine cover
  • Working fake engine

  • Length 59.5 cm (23.4 inches)
  • Width 22.3 cm (8.8 inches)
  • Height 13.5 cm (5.3 inches)
  • Weight 1.09 kg (2.4 lb)

The professional building instructions consisting of 330 steps in 204 pages are created with Bricklink Stud.io 2.0, here is an example of how the instructions look like:

I have spent a couple of 100's of hours on the design of the model and an additional +100 hours in creating the instructions. Hence, if you purchase the instructions I kindly request you not to share them. The set price is low so anybody that would like to build this model can afford to buy the instructions. Thank you.


Bonus model
This model is designed solely with bricks available in the 42096-1 Porsche 911 RSR set but is prepared to be easily motorized. Additional bonus instructions for motorization consisting of 31 steps in 31 pages are included at the end of the instructions document.
The motorized model weight is 1.33 kg (2.9 lb) and is geared up 3:1 so it is quite fast! The following additional parts are required for the motorization:

  1. Two  36 tooth gears
  2. 2 XL motors
  3. 1 servo motor
  4. 2 IR receivers
  5. 1 battery box
  6. 1 remote control

Bonus model functions

  • Remote steering in Ackerman geometry with working steering wheel
  • Remote forward and reverse propulsion
  • 4 wheel independent suspension.
  • Tiltable engine cover
  • Working high RPM fake engine

The motorized model is designed so it is very simple to exchange the batteries without having to disassemble the car as seen on this video:

The inventory includes all parts required regardless of which version you build (with exception of the motorization list above). This means that you will have parts over when building any of the two versions which is nothing to worry about.

    Great build, attaching the nose is tricky. I have some comments for the instructions:
    * Step 25: It is easy to forget the second black pin (needed in step 293!
    * Step 218: The black/white/black bars must be turned 180 degrees to have two holes on the outside. Not so clear. Maybe make mini step 1+2+3 so it is oriented properly?
    * Step 300: I am missing black pins (or glue) to make the red liftarm 3 attach!
    Idea: Could the antenna (step 306-309) be replaced by eg. a grey axle to provide hand-of-god steering?
    Otherwise a really nice build! Good job!

      Many thanks for your feedback, I really appreciate it!
      I will check these steps out and improve the instructions as needed.
      Thanks for your idea, will look into it for version 2. If you have a solution you are welcome to modify :-)

      Glad that you like the build!

      I have now gone throgh your feedback and to be frank I have no idea how I missed this when I tested to build with the instructions, in particular step 300.
      A new instructions document is being generated and will shortly be uploaded. As a reward for your excellent feedback you will get a discount on next MOC I put up for sale.
      Many THANKS!

    Very cool! But I think a gearbox would make it much better. Of cause then it were no alternate build any more, but isn´t a modification not good enough?
    • 1 week ago GeyserBricks (902) MOC Designer DESIGNER
      Thanks for the suggestion! However, I wanted to make this one as a "true" B model and there are not enough bricks in the 42096 set to add a gearbox.

      But stay tuned and I will return with another B-model for another set and that one will include a gearbox!

    Hello Aliosha,

    great MOC - used SBrick instead of IR and that works fine too!
    Would be interesting to see it powered with BuWizz... don't have one on hand at the moment..

    Really nice work - well done mate!

      Hello Thomas and many thanks for your feedback, feels great that you are happy with the build! Would love to see a MOC photo! 
      I have planned to purchase a BuWizz sometime in the future, when that happens I will integrate it and provide additional instructions.

      Cheers, Aliosha

    Great job!! I think this is the best f1 I've seen so far. Any plans for a video to show the motorization performance?

      Many thanks!
      I spent a really long time in getting the proportions correct so I am glad to get this positive feedback! :-)

      Yes, I have planned to create a video during next week when I have got proper gear.
