Wonderful! I've never seen it before. I wonder if the 2/3 black, 1/3 white background is contemporary - I think it must be, but it looks so 'modern'.

The drawing is arising from "Science et vie" 1950,but i don't know if the background is by the author or by the publisher

I have a piece of original artwork of a Rochdale Olympic sportscar drawn by Lofthouse (of the 'Motor' magazine). Can anyone tell me about Lofthouse?

I can't tell you much about Tony Lofthouse, even though I have 36 of his drawings (digitally - no original). Most of what I have (25) are part of the World Reactor Series, but I also have some cars (mostly Lotus, but also the Green Monster LSR and Ferguson F1), motorcycles (BSA engines and a Scorpion, and a couple versions of the Rochdale Olympic). From my selection of drawings he seems to have preferred monochromatic pen and ink - all of the non-reactor drawings I have are that variety, but he did use color portions in a mostly inked drawing for some of the reactors, and the last several were full color.

I also would like to know more of him, when he worked (his last reactor drawing was c.1985), etc.

Marc - thanks for mentioning the signature - I meant to do that and forgot. I have another drawing of his signed Max A Millar, but it is similar to the two-line, block letter signature which is so familiar, but on a single line. I have several others that are single line, but typical block lettering. None of my other nearly 100 drawings by him have a cursive signature like this. I have a couple of his (presumably early) drawings that use a more cursive style lettering for labeling all the parts, but they are either unsigned or have the typical two-line block letter signature.

Hi All,

I've been spending a bit more time reading back through the Technical Illustrator's website and found a post from January 2010 titled 'Warplane Cutaways' that in turn links to an Italian thread Aerei Militari full of cutaways. The contributors aren't great at referencing sources and the quality is variable, but I thought I'd bring it to your attention in case you fancied a browse. The site's Italian so translation is best left to Google. Some of the backgrounds to the cutaways are quite colorful and, in my opinion, pretty decent.

We have another Boeing product out of the 30s. This was pretty advanced stuff at the time, and before Boeing became the primary of larger aircraft. This is the P-26A Peashooter as drawn by Mike Badrocke. This was published in the April, 1995 issue of Air International.

A bit different, but still a Boeing-Vertol product as illustrated by Mike Badrocke under his Aviagraphica signature, this is the HCMK1 Chinook helicopter, as published in the 1980 RAF Annual out of Pilot Press.

Posted Image Here's James A. Allington's illustration of the beautiful Ferrari 330/P4, again. This has been posted several times before, but I cannot find the latest posting on page 192. This was photographed from the poster set made available by Shell Oil Company from their magazine advertisements. Here is a scan of the original advertisement:

It's missing a bit down the middle, but adds some interesting information about the components so wonderfully shown in the cutaway. And, yes, in the lower left corner it offers three large prints for one dollar.

Just lucky ... it was in the Boeing part of my scanned stuff, and would have been coming along anyway, since I am working into the things in File name order; I name the aircraft by Aircraft, then year, then artist in the actual file name. Somehow, I changed it from my automotive naming system, which is by artist, then car, then year.
There are many more 707 files in there, but no telling when they might come up .. I have something close to 1000 just Badrocke-Aviagraphica images in the collection, so may take a bit to get to them .. considering I am not exactly getting to do many of them in a week ...

QUOTE (Catalina Park @ Jan 21 2012, 05:19)
I have played around with VWs and there is not much strength in the floors at all. The backbone does not get any strength from the floors. The suspension loads are taken through the backbone and not the floors.
You can remove and replace the floors without hurting the structure.


This may or may not help. Visit the Cutaway thread for a better version.

A correction for the index, the James Ibusuki drawing on page 132 titled Sonic Arrow should read Spirit of America Formula Shell LSRV.
This is the early Breedlove car with a small stabilising fin and short wheel fairings, you cannot see these on page 132 so I have posted a very poor image showing them, after testing at the Black Rock desert a larger fin was added and the wheel fairings redesigned, after the car was sold to Steve Fosset he made a number of changes including lowering the height of the wheel fairings, completely removing the stabilising fin and renaming the car Spirit of America Sonic Arrow.

Here is another Max Millar - typical signature, but atypical subject matter - HMS Indomitable (pennant number 92), an Illustrious class aircraft carrier launched in 1940 (sold for scrap in 1955).
Posted Image

The next was originally identified as a1930 Ford Model A, but as Christanus pointed out (post 10897), it has a L6 engine - other other oddities are noted in post 10899, so until a determination is made, call this an undetermined c1930s sedan by an unknown artist.

Hello, everybody!

Very good point - I didn't look closely at the engine and just used the identification on the image where I found it on the web. Since Ford didn't use a L6 between 1908 and 1941 something is obviously errant. Looking at the engine, the radiator cap resembles that of Pontiac; the placement of the radiator hose connection to the block (2/3 of the way back instead of near the front) is not typical of any of the L6s of the day with which I am familiar, and allows the unique placement of the generator front and center above the block instead of along the lower side of the engine; wheels appear to be knock-off hubs rather than bolt-on wheels with hubcaps.

So... what is it? Obviously at least part of the initial caption is inaccurate.

The reason I posted this is because the person who created the aluminium bodied Toyota 2000GT on the "Backbone thread" is none other than Shin Yoshikawa the cutaway artist--apparently he can cutaway steel also...

It is not a Ford of any sort, for the even more fundamental reason that it has proper semi-elliptic suspension where Ford was dedicated to their transverse system from 1908 Model T to 1959 Popular!
It also has open prop-shaft not torque tube and as said above, knock-on wheels not bolt-on.
Oh and it's right-hand drive so an unidentified saloon, not sedan please!
