[quote name='macoran' date='May 12 2012, 04:45' post='5708056']
In 1952 the brothers started a technical illustrations office. 1953 saw the brothers gain international recognition when they presented very detailed cutaways of the British Royal Air Force’s Supermarine Swift. The drawings, published in the international Swiss aircraft publication Interavia kicked up a big stink and stir, but the youngsters explained that they had done nothing illicit other than extrapolate on known information of previous aircraft models which they had gleaned from earlier publications.

Here is that Supermarine Swift rendering from the 1953/54 edition of Air Progress History of Aviation. Given the complexity of the brothers' drawings of the commercial airliners that they had earlier produced, it is not too much of a stretch of believe that they could infer the rather simpler structure and systems of the Swift from its external appearance.

This is the Lotus 25 Indy car from that year


While the Fairlane-powered Lotus Indy car of 1963 was based on the Lotus 25 chassis and suspension layout, it was officially known as a Lotus 29.

I was basing the comment and the ID on the article that mentioned the Lotus 29. Thought the 29 was actually the DOHC Ford car, not the pushrod Fairlane-engined car. So be it.

An easy mistake to make, Tom. The 4-cam car was the 34.

Seems like I should know that. I did a drawing of that car for a diecast design with Carousel. A friend of ours had completed a restoration of one of those cars, so i did the research from that car. Later that year, I think, it did end up at Goodwood. Pretty decent reviews of the restoration, it appears.
The owner at Carousel was very nervous about sending the drawings, as Lotus was evidently giving everyone doing replicas fits with changes and corrections, so he was pretty antsy, although I told him not to worry. Turned out, he got an approval back almost immediately with no revisions being asked. Guess I can copy crap with the best of them ...
Just to make conversation for a bit, I have to say that between the chance to do the cutaways with the drag racing and hot rod guys, which got me into the modelkit business, and then into diecast, I have gotten to do most of the car types that I could ever want. Started with a drag racing project for Aurora, then ran the marketing for MPC and Revell, but got to specify and direct the development of the products. Then did some interesting modelkits for Precision Miniatures and Galaxie, then into new diecast with a huge push at Action Performance, and then with my own business. I have been able to get inside so many interesting cars, and aircraft and other categories of product over the years that it has really been a blast. i am, however, completely jealous of Tony and the guys who had the chance to do Formula 1. That is probably the only major class of racing that I have not approached .. but I probably have almost all the American types covered.
Sorry, just a little drift for the morning.

You can't beat a little drift in the morning every now and then, Tom! I would have liked to cut away some of the earlier - earlier to me - Indy cars, but the earliest was the Penske PC6. I used to look forward to the very brief reports of the Indy 500, and the two- or three pages with a colour photograph in "Automobile Year". It all seemed so colourful and glamorous compared with F1 - that's a bit like telling a retired RAF pilot that you think the FW 190 is a great-looking 'plane! It was always nice to do something different, but mainly I just regret that I did so few cutaways, and I envy you the modeling side, as I always thought of my illustrations as 2D models, and still hanker after a bit of model making...

next, a 1951 Renault 4cv by Riche

and last, a couple of twin-shaft aviation turbofans from Rolls Royce -

the first is the AE2100a used to power military and civilian turboprop planes such as the SAAB 2000 (produced 1994-1999 but 90% still in service).

the last is the BR-710, used in the Gulfstream V (1997), the Bombardier Global Express (1998), and the Gulfstream G550 (2003).

I am trying to clean out some of the long-sitting scans that I did a while back, and came up with two for the next. This particular one has been posted here previously, but his is a bit larger rendition of the Gordon Bruce illustration of the Lotus Elan. Pulled from the pages of the September, 1963 edition of Sports Car Graphic. Always love the precise registration on these things.
Note that this has been previously posted, but this is a bit larger file, for you other OCD types out there ...

The second piece from me for the day is Brian Hatton's Brabham Formula 1 out of the September, 1963 Road & Track. This was part of a Grand Prix update article, which also included a Hatton illustration of the Cooper ... to follow at some point.

Are there any known cutaways of those two as well?

Yep, It would be interesting to see a cutaway of the Stratos 0 or the Carabo. Just to see how 'exotic' they really are internally. I definitely prefer Bertone to the Pininfarina concepts.
I can't help with either though, I'm afraid.

I can tie up an old loose end regarding the 612 CanAm Ferrari though. It's a Betti!

I googled around as well and found some Ferrari cutaways in a brazilian blog.
Here is one of them:

I think it's an either/or scenario, 1512 or 512 F1, Marc?

Well, I won at pitch and putt today, which doesn't happen very often, I don't know what the weather is like in Holland right now, but the weather down on the South Coast of England is scorching. Cider weather I think.

Mark, Quattroruote named this cutaway "Ferrari 512"

On the book "Ferrari" - by Hans Tanner and Doug Nye - Sixth Edition this Ferrari is named 1512.

I've always believed that '1512' was the correct designation as it continued the sequence:

156 - 1.5 litre 6 cylinder
158 - 1.5 litre 8 cylinder
1512 - 1.5 litre 12 cylinder

but this may be wrong.

The above sequence makes sense.

Could the '512 F1' designation have been used instead as a shorthand for the engine specification/type?

Yep, it's a funny one, Marc. :up:

I'm sure 1512 is correct, however right or wrong, both the 1512 and 512/F1 seem to be used in an either/or way.

The original source of the cutaway for example used the 512/F1.

Appendix 17 of the Hans Tanner/Doug Nye book (page 646) Ferrari engine specifications, attaches 512/F1 to the engine type (Correct me someone if I have misunderstood this, hence my previous comment regarding it perhaps being a shorthand for engine spec/type).

Then as Ibsen says, on page 605, Appendix 4A relating to specifications of Grand Prix cars, we are given Type 1512.

Again Appendix 3 (Is this starting to sound like the Leveson Inquiry?) Engine specifications 1946 -1972 (From official Ferrari record book) we are given a type 512/F1.

So is it a step too far to say perhaps 1512 (car type), 512/F1 (engine type)?

Anyone want to see a colour 312 F1? :)
