We haven't had a nautical or Eagle cutaway for some time - this HMS Warspite by J Walkden Fisher fills both - it was in the January 3, 1958 edition

Here is a little-known plane by an artist I don't believe we have seen before.

Caproni Ca.331 Raffica was an Italian plane built for two purposes - the first, Ca.331A, or Ca.331OA (Osservazione Area) first flew in August of 1940 as an observational prototype. Though praised, it never went into production.
Ca.331B or Ca.331CN (Caccia Notturno - Night Fighter) first flew in the summer of 1942. The addition of armament and several modifications took many months, but what actually prevented it from going into production before the Italian surrender to the Allies in September of 1943 is uncertain. A second prototype was started but not completed before the surrender and never flew. Both planes were dismantled.

The artist is Robert Pietracha.

Well, we've had a quiz here before - spot the difference, anyway. As to the Escort, I cannot think, but as soon as the correct answer is posted - unless it is a unique, one-off - I will, as usual, say "Of course!"

Actually, you are probably the most likely to get it. That is, you may kick yourself, if you don't. (Pay little heed to the number of *'s though).

It isn't the G4 Xtrac Escort Rallycross car, Marc. Although that is close. I can't really say anymore than that, without completely giving the game away. :up:

:) Correct, byrkus! :up:

Escort RS1700T, Fords first Group B project, code named 'Columbia'. Front engine/rear transmission and drive conversion of the Escort MK III. Unveiled in 1981 and cancelled in 1983.

(And, Marc, I mentioned that you were close, because I believe the car in the article that you linked to, contained donor RS1700T parts, I couldn't mention that though!) :up:

Thought I recognized some stuff in the cutaway.
Martin Schanke rallycrossed the Xtrac in the Euroseries at the Valkenswaard events
When I was doing my thing in the 2CV cross at the same meetings I even did some spannerwork for him

I see two bottles right behind the front axle in the GTS, that are not present in the 904.

Additionally...
* the battery is shaded on the GTS,
* both ends of the front axle proper are drawn similarly on the GTS, which is not the case on the 904.
* There is some minor differences in shading under the right side of the windshield, GTS being stippled, the 904 being crosshatched (or perhaps it is just a difference in the quality of scan).
* The side air duct is shown (just in front of the rear shock) on the GTS, but is not depicted on the drawing of the 904.
* There are also several areas where lines appear more emphasized in the GTS drawing than they were on the 904 (but this again may be due to the scans, not the originals).

And there may be more...

Correct, helioseism. :up: Two additonal fluid reservoirs.

Correct, Peter. :up:

But, additionally, your eye has picked up on much more than eye did initially. (Accepting as you say, the potential difference between scans and between the scans and the original). :up:

A peek at the past - the General Motors 1951 concept car - LeSabre
Posted Image

This vehicle introduced wrap-around windshields and tail fins. The body, made of aluminum, magnesium, and fiberglass, had a power top with sensors that lifted it automatically when rain was detected, electric lifting jacks built into the chassis, concealed headlights (behind the center oval jet intake), front bumper dagmars, heated seats, and a 12-volt electrical system. Power from the supercharged 215 ci v8 (that could run on gasoline or methanol) was sent to the wheels through a rear-mounted automatic transmission. It wasn't just a conceptual shell - it was used for two years after the show circuit as his personal car by the designer, Harley Earl, who is also credited with designing the '27 LaSalle, '38 Y-Job (first concept car), '40 GM Futurliner tour bus, '53 Corvette, '53 Firebird I, '56 Firebird II, '57 Olds F-88, '58 Firebird III, and from this concept, the '59 Buick LeSabre.

But with fewer labels and a slightly different orientation. Does anyone know who the artist may be?

I am sorry to say that it is, Frank - my apologies - I didn't mean to be redundant. When I checked to see if it had been posted I didn't remember seeing the earlier post and I didn't think to look under Buick (the LeSabre name wasn't used by Buick until '59). I presume the artist was part of his design team, but the only listing of those individuals that I have been able to find is several years later so I can shed no light on his (or her) name.

Peter -- don't be sorry! The two versions are pretty different so it's good to have both! Mine came from the latest Automobile Quarterly, but obviously a reprint from a 50's magazine other than your version from Science & Mechanics. There must have been some unsung anonymous artists doing these at the time, and it would be good to try to identify them.

In the late 30's Max Millar believed that the motor industry was building cars based on style and fashion rather than function, so he designed this car.

Cyrstal clear scans, Ibsen. :up:

I reckon today, all those wedgy angles would probably go down quite well. (Albeit as something a bit cynically retro).

And to think, legendary Gruppo Bertone are or were, recently on the verge of bankruptcy. :eek:

:up: It reminds me of some of the other semi-obscure 'mini thinking' concepts of that era. (Only because I have been reading about them recently). The Rover Scarab, Pomeroy's Mini Motor. The Hillman Little Jim, and even the later Rover M1.
