Edit: Really nice stuff. They look a bit like collectable cigarette cards.



All from 1952 editions of the Eagle.

And two aircraft by Arthur Bowbeer

Boeing B-52 Stratofortress (pencil drawing)

Viscount Vickers 745D

Thanks for posting the drawings. My Bowbeer folio is now pretty much complete. The 52 is the only cutaway of a tall tail
model I've ever seen, spent a few years in and around the beast back in the 60's. The Viscount is a neat drawing in a style
that seemed to go out of fashion at Flight in the late 50's.
One final request, if I may. Frank Munger's Vulcan. Great artist, iconic aircraft.

Here are two Vuclan cutaways by Frank. The quality is not so good. Hope someone would upload better ones.

Picked up a copy of 'Burt Rutan's Race To Space' and, apart from being a good read, had a cutaway of his VariViggen design in there that I've not seen here before.

I shan't post the cutaway itself because it's a new (2011) book.

Great. Juuuust great. Happened to click into the online archive of 'Flight' magazine and pretty much lost a few hrs of my life. Some cracking things to be seen there.

My apologies to the car-only lovers of this thread, but I could not go without highlighting some illustrations from my travels.....

For example, there's a Palmer cutaway of the Viscount available here and here

Posted Image Posted Image

I am absolutely loving these old-fashioned cutaways where one can see almost every pencil stroke of the artists.

Not only will you find 'official' cutaways, but there's countless 'casual' illustrations that are remarkable for their general loveliness:-

I'm trying to educate some slot racers about the suspension!

It is,
I posted a Nestola Alfa Guilia on page 119, and following discussions delivered following info.

QUOTE (Manel Baró @ May 5 2010, 13:08)
The drawing is signed by Bruno Nestola, without doubt one of the most talented Italian illustrators and journalists of 60's and 70's, director for years of the iconic "Auto Italiana" weekly and mentor of Giorgio Piola as he mentioned in one interview."...The only one aid I had came from a colleague who was fantastic Bruno Nestola, (Unfortunately he is not longer with us), who was the director of "Auto Italiana " and drew very, very well. In that kind of drawings I immodestly consider the one that was more talented than me."·
His large quickly-made vivid free-hand sketches of new protos and cutaways were and still are, IMO, second to none.

Prototype Cooper Mark III. Artist, Theo Page.

more specifically, the i4 dohc 2L F1 Cooper T45 from 1958, sometimes called T45 MkIII, but the Cooper's Type Reference (http://www.race-cars...ity/cooperr.htm) does not include any such reference - there the only MkIIIs are the 1949 500cc car and the 1962 T59 Formula Junior MKIII

Not to be confused with the prototype 1947 T3 which was powered by a 500cc JAP single or the MkIII from 1949, with a similar engine; the T3 is shown below.

Greetings IrishMariner thanks for that contribution, in particular took years looking for this cut schematic and the Long Eze VariEze and both creations after VariViggen engineer Burt Rutan.

Rutan VariViggen cutaway, the first airplane designed and built by the great engineer Burt Rutan, built mostly in plywood, two-seater of the canard, fully retractable landing gear, with a Lycoming four-cylinder and 100 horsepower to the rear , who moved an impeller, the canard wing warned of entries lost, had two drifts on the planes and rudders, this was the one who started the lmuy long and fruitful career as a designer of airplanes, as we see quite modest by Indeed, with a plane of the planes were sold to those who were owners build, this model was followed by another canard VeriEze lighter but even better, faster and simpler to build, with a construction technique of composite materials, basically one-directional fibers bonded with epoxy resin to a polyurethane foam core only 2 cm thick, today it is preserved in a museum, Burt Rutan has among its successes having built the first circumnavigated the earth plane in December 1986sin land or re-refuel, then different aircraft design was tested and all unorthodox something new, like a plane asymmetric, another rotated oblique wing on the fuselage, wings two-engine aircraft landing gear tanden which drove in one point in the race to it to shorten the takeoff run, culminating in the SpaceShip One, the first initiative that manages to take a pilot and two passengers equivalent ballast to win the "X Prize" with a flight more sub-orbital height of 100 km, a lifetime of achievement without the fear of the new and willing to overcome obstacles with great ingenuity and creativity, today its developments are carried out in Composite Space Company Inc. now your company works in construction and testing of the first rocket to the SpaceShipTwo space tourism "together with the investor Richard Branson and his company" Virgin Galactic "which incidentally is already receiving orders for a short but exciting sub-orbital flight, for a sum not now down to one hundred thousand dollars, and performed the same test flights and recently inaugurated the Spaceport where the tourists will leave their adventure.

How about a couple of more pieces for this evening ... morning, wherever the hell you are as you read this ...
Sorry, but we will start with a couple of aircraft, certainly a disappointment to a few of you, I am sure. This is the Mike Badrocke illustration of the Dassault Rafale B, as published in the June, 1997 issue of Air International

Rather a contrast from the Rafale, this is the World War I era DeHavilland DH9A. Drawn by Mike Badrocke under the Aviagraphica signature and Pilot Press Copyright, this piece appeared in the 1978 RAF Yearbook.

Not sure how much this will satisfy your need for cars, as it is certainly not among the more memorable illustrations, or vehicles, of all time. This David Kimble piece for haynes is the Geo Storm from 1993.

Another David Kimble piece for Haynes, this is the 1994 Saturn, part of the now defunct GM division that was intended to establish a new way to manufacture cars in the US ... did not really seem to accomplish that goal from what I saw.
More to come ... just found some new Betti pieces, and am trying to decide whether to pull a book apart to get to them ... think I will do that, as I would rather have the images than the book to be honest. The Betti brothers illustrations in question are the McLaren MP4/2B, the Ferrari 156/85 F1 car, and the Porsche 962C, plus the 1984 Peugeot 205 Turbo and a few more Rally cars from other sources. Well worth the structural sacrifice of the Quattroruote Speciale Sport Edition out of 1985.
What do you think?

Although I am a book person - prefer holding a book to reading on a screen, even a Kindle or Nook, I often purchase books to take them apart for the cutaways, because they can be viewed much better on a screen, especially my large monitor, and if I want to examine detail I can blow it up as large as the pixel count will allow. When the image covers multiple pages you cannot get a full image without doing it. That said, I don't take them all apart - for example, I scanned the images from the new Kimble book without dismantling it (but they were all single page, fortunately). Just one point of view - I am sure you will hear others.

Today' offerings are maritime, not automotive, illustrations. All are oceanliners, all are in color. The first two are unsigned, found on multiple sites while surfing the web, but each was attributed to Kevin Hulsey in at least one site.

The first is Brilliance of the Seas, launched in 2002
Posted Image

Second is Empress of the Seas, launched in 2004
Posted Image

Third is Freedom of the Seas, launched in 2006 - I have not seen any attribution of this image, but is has the style of the first two and is also a Royal Caribbian vessel.
Posted Image

The last is the Queen Mary II, launched in 2004 - no attribution, but differing in style from the above.

Schematic Court of the Mercedes C111-IV, modified from the C111-III, 1978, a car very aerodynamic with a drag coefficient of 0.183 with 5-cylinder diesel engine turbo, which won a record average speed for sustained for more than 500 miles (320.788 km / h) and 1000 miles (319.091 km / h) on the Nardo circuit in Italy circular, now with a V-8 turbo 4.82-liter C111-IV was released to the race for speed record on May 5, 1979 leaving the mark above the 403 978 km / h and is now more streamlined and with the installation of additional fins to keep it glued to the track and stable at such speeds, this court is based on folklore work G. Betti's Mercedes C111-III and modified by Motocar to create the C111-IV, is not of great quality but if my first work with cars, airplanes had worked with before.

Maritime files are among my scantiest - only about 200 images. I only have a couple of cargo, and most aren't of sufficient detail to really be called cutaways. Here are two cargo cutaways, but there isn't much detail in either.
The first is a prototype Quantum9000 from Det Norske Veritas of Finland - LPGfueled
Posted Image

The second is the MV.Tønsberg, built by the Wilhelmsen Group (Norway) in March, 2011.
Posted Image

I also have a few from Eagle Comics, all by L Ashwell Wood - sort of fun, but not detailed like the oceanliners (but more so than the cargo ships above) -
first is the Antarctic ship Tottan
Posted Image

next is a refrigerated cargo ship
Posted Image

next is the Velutina (1950), Britain's largest oil tanker when launched
Posted Image

next is a tramp diesel cargo ship
Posted Image

last is the Beavercove (1947), a turbo-electric cargo ship
Posted Image

I ran accros a book (which you may have) called Cargo & Container Ships of which it is said "Each spread includes a large, full-color, cutaway illustration of a ship, with simple text pointing out important features. Fact boxes and color photographs of the ship in action add further interest." The book is actually designed for reluctant reading students, but purportedly has good drawings (I have not seen them). It retails at $26US but can be obtained for less - $15.41US plus shipping at http://product.half....cpid=1379594223. It only has 32 pages, so it isn't large, but it might be of interest.

sorry I can't be of more help - perhaps others have some decent cutaways for you...

Thank you Peter, that was quite a lot of stuff, and very nice too, in particular the Eagle Comics drawings. They make things look very tidy and orderly though - once you see the loading plans drawn up by the mate (by hand, of course) you realise how difficult it is to get such a ship filled with its very diverse cargo.

Love the penguins attentively studying the Antarctic ship ...

I did a few new car scans, just to keep the automotive content quotient a bit higher. We seem to be on a run of amazing work, very mixed in style and subject, so let's get back to the cars for a couple of minutes. There are a few more scanned, but the main ones will take some effort because I had to pull the pages from the book, and it was the old glued-spine binding, so there are chunks missing along the gutter. The book is the Quattroruote Speciale Sport, 1985 edition, just to give full credit.
We start with a bit cleaner piece from Giorgio Alisi, a relatively simple illustration of the mid-engined 1985 World Rally Championship Audi Quattro Sport. It certainly shows the layout of this interesting effort.
