Werks,

Thanks for posting the 917/10 blueprints. I've been off this site for a little bit, and just found them.

THANKS!

Are you using Adobe 'illustrator' for these Ibsen?

Artist unknown, or at least forgotten, but coloured-in by yours truly with his little box of paints and squirrel-hair smudger, in a few hours, just to keep the picture-editor for 'On Two Wheels' happy. I was hoping I'd never see it again, but there you go...

Came across this rather odd post in 10/10ths (is it?). Dunno who the guy is but it doesn't read quite right. The only cutaway Jim did for FAV was the GT40, and I should think the fee was probably in the low three figures. When I started working for him he was paid £30 for a cutaway by R&T, C&D. My time was charged out at 10/- (50p for our younger readers) an hour! I was appalled when I found out 'cos it meant he wouldn't be able to pay me even £20 for a 40 hour week! That's when I started gently pressurising him to up his rate...

"I used to work with Jim Allington. It was a while before I found out just who he was!
He was doing the parts catalogue illustrations for Ford, as it paid the bills. He made a LOT of money with cutaways for Ford SVE in the GT40 days, but when I met him in the 80s that had all gone away. I still have one of his prints, a cutaway of his own 275GTB Ferrari, as a memento of visiting him with the family one day. Lovely man."

It is Porsche 953, the winner of Dakar 1984.
It would be nice to find the same in better resolution.

...here goes a moot promise...as Xmas(Humbug!) is coming up, must stir myself into some action and scan the two volumes of Laurence Pomeroy's "The Grand Prix Car", has some lovely cutaways and detail sketches by L. C. Cresswell...also a couple of aero engine books, on the Allison and on the Merlyn, seeing as we have had some good engines here...LKJ Setrights two books also has a lot of cutaways, must see the ones already posted...but don't hold me to it, they are rather big and I only have A4 size scanners...(any volunteers to sew them together?)

RDV,
I have the later verion of The Grand Prix Car by Setright, but was never able to get the earlier Pomeroy book, which is a real classic. I ended up being able to copy pages from it at the Taledega Museum ... which is the NASCAR Superspeedway in Alabama. Very strange place to be getting classi Grand Prix reference The copies weren't all that effective, so I will, for one, look forward to seeing your better scans of those cutaways in the book. From past experience in this group, please don't worry about getting them assembled, as there are always folks who will jump in and do a great job with it. Just give a decent enough scan, and make sure to overlap so there is room to work with the splicing.
You supply the pieces and the tailor will go to work for you.
Take a number at the door .. although I think you will have number 1 for this stuff.
Thanks for the efforts.
Tom West

Funny thing.......I sold those off a few years ago for a good amount to a fellow TNFer.
Once you've owned them for nearly 30 years I found them wearing off...... and they actually stopped impressing me as good works.
Maybe one day I'll be ploughing through e-bay and what not to get copies again, but for now... I know I had them
but I don't feel missing them.

But wait: there's more! The Salmson-Moineau SM-1 with 9 cylinder watercooled radial engine "buried" in the fuselage driving the airscrews via shaft and bevel gears.
There are, of course, several/many other examples of shafts "doing things" in aircraft - B36, P39, P63, XB35 ... etc. but the SM-1 is probably my favourite. :eek:

With regard to the Pomeroy & Setright books, I have all of them, and I can start scanning and assembling. By the way, I use Adobe Photoshop CS4, which has a great automated routine called photomerge that does a perfect job of splicing together multi-part cutaway scans. I know Photoshop is usually very expensive, but Adobe seems to deeply discount the previous version when they release a new one. I paid $100 for CS4 when CS5 came out.

Great stuff!...looks like I've been liberated from my rash promise...much better scan than I've been able to achieve, and as in in the process of designing our 2011 car means a bit more time for her indoors! ;)
Edit-Anyway, over Xmas can do the Allison stuff...

Guys,
I have been grateful for this group for quite a while, since finding it a bit over a year ago. This has been wonderful to see that there are other whackos out there who enjoy this art form that we deal with.
So, along with the Colonists' quaint tradition, first proclaimed by that rebel leader, George Washington, I acknowledge all of you by wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving Day, whether you celebrate it directly or not. Thanks for everyone's contributions (except that one guy who gave Tony a bunch of shit earlier this year). It has been a real pleasure being involved here.
