Been a while since I actually posted any new material, but I have been trying to catch up on some other things. Just got one of the pieces done, the Bristol Blenheim Mk. IVA from Aviagraphica ... Mike Badrocke. This was out of the RAF Yearbook 1978.
Will try to keep this going more regularly, but no promises ...

Thanks Tom. When I was a small boy aircraft were as important to me as cars, if not more so, and all these older aircraft bring back a lot of memories. The Blenheim is obviously before my time, at least memory-wise, but 'planes from the 1950s and '60s I find fascinating. The rate of progress was fast, and you still had a mix of jet and piston engined and turbojet propeller-driven aircraft.

In fact, thanks to everyone who spends time scanning, stitching and cleaning cutaways to post here, it is a time-consuming, and sometimes tiring process, especially when there are other pressing issues!

I am going to step back in time a bit with this Aviagraphica (Mike Badrocke) piece on the classic World War I Brisfit, the two seat fighter. The Bristol F2B was published in the RAF Yearbook 1985.

Another in the sequence across time from Bristol Aircraft is this Bulldog IIA Fighter from the '30s. This is a John Weal illustration that came from the RAF Yearbook 1978.
Just trying to clear a couple of things out of the file, so will have to dig back and assemble a few more for ya'll.

Tony,

How about a heart pump?
I used to love our two weeks of research trip down to North Carolina. I would start out with one of those big Southern Breakfasts the first day ... then not touch it again the rest of the time. The research shows that the population of New Orleans is the most overweight in the US ... and you can start to see why.
Hope you have enjoyed some of the new material that I added recently to the Albums on Facebook.

Goodyear FG-1A Corsair Cutaway, the U.S. naval fighter version of the Chance Vought F4 Corsair, built as sub-contractor by Goodyear which I believe their own versions, including this model FG-1A deck cabin bubble that provided maximum visibility at all angles, but arrived late on the scene of the Pacific, and had been built only 5 copies delivered in August 1945, later re-built motorized versions with an engine more powerful Pratt and Whitney R-4360, called Super-Corsair, had a speed of about 700 km / h, including aerodynamic changes as derived from new design and larger area, the model represented here is the version that used the same engine Pratt and Whitney R2800 of 2000 horse power, many were subsequently sold as war surplus and purchased for use in air races, leaving a great brand, author Weal, as amended by Motocar to create the Goodyear FG-1A and uploaded by ImageShack.us

For those who like to examine drawings to see the differences, here is the Yak 28 (artist unknown) before modification by Motocar
Posted Image

Mike Badrocke's Bell X1 (the drawing modified by Motocar to illustrate the X1b) has already been posted on page 225, post 8961.

Mike Badrocke's AviaGraphica F9 original is included below for comparison to the modified trainer.
Posted Image

John Weal's MiG19 original (modified for the Shenyang JT6 trainer) is, I believe, somewhere in this thread, but the index doesn't have a page indicated, so it is attached for comparison.
Posted Image

Some of the drawings were taken from other publications than those illustrated above, as evidenced by reversed views, but examinations of the legends (or numbers for legends) will verify the parentage. Enjoy (or, if seeking differences is not your thing, ignore).

Peter

Greetings simplebrother, this interesting comparisons to the original schematic cut and modified by me, I look is created from the magnificent work of professional illustrators new cuts "Cutaways" versions of aircraft or models exist, with the spirit of expanding the base available from "Cutaways".

Greetings and success for you from Maracay, Venezuela

Let's look at a few from the aviation industry this morning...
The first is the Aérospatiale-BAC Concorde SST by Mike Badrocke that first flew in 1969 and was in service from 1976 to 2003.
Posted Image

The second is another by Mike Badrocke, the Lockheed U2 Dragon Lady reconnaissance plane that first flew in 1955, went into service in 1957, and is still in active service.
Posted Image

The third is another by Mike Badrocke, this time an oddity, the Westland Hill Pterodactyl 5, a fighter prototype from 1933.
Posted Image

The last is by an artist I believe unseen by the forum, Neil M Douma. (The first name is Neil - for some reason the bold italic font makes it appear as Nell.) His subject, though captioned as Grumman/Northrop's F119 Khukri, is in fact fictional, a product of the artist's creative mind.

I was just removing pages from a Dutch magazine "Onschatbare Klassiekers" nr 3 2012 with this cutaway in it.
In the magazine it is unsigned and not credited, and I had a hunch it was by La Tourette.
How amazing that you happen to post it just as I was scanning it.

Well done, Embers! Superb editing. Any clues on how you did it? I am clueless in such matters.


After I save the image, I usually right click on it and open it in MS Picture It Premium 10. For pictures that have to be spliced, I straighten the image using some photo edge or printed straight line. There is a feature in "Picture It" called "Freehand Painting" that allows you to match a color, such as a background, then virtually spray paint out blemishes and such things as superflous text.

Once both sections to be spliced have been straightened and cleaned, I make use of MS paint and a template, kindly supplied by Macoran. After opening the template one selects the edit function and the "Paste from" selection. This allows you to paste the left side of the image to be spliced onto the template. Move the image to the left so that only a small section shows, then again select "paste from" and paste the right-hand section of the image. As long as you keep the cursor on the new section to be pasted you can move it to align with the right edge of the original image. Once you move it off the new section you are stuck with its position. You may find that you can't get the images to line up because of a gap, which you will later have to fill in, or because the images are of slightly different size. You can then go back into MS Picture It and resize the right-side image, usually by trial and error.

When a gap in the images exists, as happened with the scans from the RAF Flying Review, the fun begins. You have to decide whether or not enough information exists to bridge the gap. This can be done using both of the programs previously mentioned. "Picture It" permits one to crop out sections and reinsert them into the image, which helps to reproduce repetitive images such as structural elements. The "Freehand Painting" permits shading to be added, and the MS Paint program has functions to draw lines and curves of varying thickness.

Occassionally, one has to admit that the illustrator's original intent has been lost and you just have to do the best you can. My philosophy then is to tell myself that it is worthwhile to have the restored image, even with small areas of uncertainty.

Try it! You learn by doing, and good luck! And, by the way, Irish, happy St. Pat's Day.

A pretty reasonable conclusion - not sure who else it could be.
He has used a variety of signatures on his drawings (though I haven't seen PEC before your postings)

Interestingly, I took this, admittedly, poor phone image of the latter airplane about two weeks ago. This is a rare example, outside of Russia, of a Soviet "Great Patriotic War" combat veteran with 14 kill markings. It's about 2 1/2 km. from my home. I could also, literally, put my hands on a Raiden after about an hour's drive (in good traffic).

No it didn't, Marc.

I have a feeling you are right. I should really have included a question mark. (I didn't want to appear too demanding, like I am asking questions all the time).

Were you going to suggest, Terry Collins?

The source is the CLB Encyclopedia of Cars. And it is chock-a-block with the coloured versions of Davey's Haynes works. (But that is no excuse :) )

I'll correct the post then according to your suggestion, Marc.

Mitsubishi J2M3 Raiden Model 21 Cutaway, the fighter interceptor of the Japanese Navy, was involved in many battles against the B-29 bombers attacking the Japanese territory, its development was rather slow for an interceptor whose order was issued in 1938 by the Navy Imperial Japan, making its maiden flight on March 20, 1942, the backlog was due to the urgent demands of engines that made ​​it difficult choosing the right motor for this interceptor, with the result that the choice lay with the Mitsubishi Kasei 13 engine hp 1430, released as J2M1, as a curiosity its huge diameter forced to delay and prolong motor transmission shaft in order to reduce its diameter, the result is an aircraft that did not meet the requirements of speed and climb regime, this deficiency is remedied with the arrival of motor MK4R-A Kasei 23a hp 1820 entering production with the name J2M3 and officially called "Interception Game Raiden Model 11 Navy" entered service in late 1943, only rode a total of 476 fighters of all variants, went into action without much success at first but once gained experience with the type was present in the defense of Japanese metropolitan, author Hashimoto, took the job of uniting the two pictures already posted on the forum by IrishMariner
