This is the 300SL engine, not 300D.


I had thought that, too, but the caption listed it as being the other. Just report it as I read it.

Thought I would put out a few aircraft pieces, since we seem to be back on a roll here. This is the Aviagraphica (Mike Badrocke) illustration of the Aeritalia G222 transport out of the April, 1977 issue of Air International.

Our second aircraft is another Air International piece, this one from June, 1975. John Weal's illustration of the Aermacchi MB326K trainer.

Here we have another of the Aermacchi trainers, the more advanced MB339 as illustrated under the Aviagraphic signature by Mike Badrocke in the June, 1978 issue of Air International.

We seem to be big on trainers in this little selection, and this is the Chezch (?) Aero L-39, first flown in 1973. The John Weal illustration appeared in Air International, June of 1975.

This will be the last of or little selection of aircraft for Wednesday; note that they are just at the beginning of the file names, and certainly have no other priority in my having done them
This is an unattributed piece, again out of Air International, February, 1976. The Aerospace Airtrainer CT-4 that first flew in 1959.
Keep the posting going, guys. Enjoying it.

The 300SL was such a distinctive engine, its easy to identify. The 45 degree cant, angled block deck, and direct injection (into the block rather than the head, no less!) really stand out.

Hello Peter,
The Modulo appeared first on page 288 of this forum. http://forums.autosp...a...t&p=5727314 The scan was made from Auto Zietung. I think the other site probably got it from here. So it has completed somewhat of a circuit. :)

Regarding the images within the posts that have been dropped, this is probably just a symptom of the recent changes/limits at Imageshack.

Regarding posts being deleted, and knocking things out of sync as it were, it might be an idea to contact the moderator, just to ascertain precisely which posts were deleted. It is probably quite innocent, I'm sure.

I'm a bit worried about Marc (Macoran) though, particularly regarding his health, I have sent him a couple of emails and I know that Ibsen has too, but no response, yet.

Best wishes,

Mark (wp) :up:


Thanks, Mark... I am surprised when I find something on that site that hasn't been here already, and was really surprised to find two - Now I understand why I found two - I got careless when checking the index and didn't see it had been listed as Modulo instead of 512s Modulo - shame on me. I've been traveling and haven't been keeping up as well as I would like. Thanks for other clarifications as well.

Thanks also to you for all the posts (and Tom and Ibsen as well) - I have come back to quite a bit of fun.

Still no word from Marc?

I confuse myself all the time, in the same way. Where I think I have scrutinized the list, but then I still have a habit of managing to miss certain key entries.

It probably would have helped if I had labelled it correctly in the first place though. As you did, the 512S Modulo.

Still no word from Marc.

Thought I would get a couple of more items for you this evening, so there will be three versions of the same aircraft, just for comparison.
The three items are the Bell P-39 Airacobra out of 1939. The first was unsigned under a Pilot Press copyright that appeared in Air Enthuisiast, August, 1971.

The third Airacobra is again the D-model from 1941, as illustrated by John Weal in Air Enthusiast. I pulled it from a Special Edition, not from the magazine.
Thought it would be interesting to give you guys a set of three like this, just for comparison.

I recently ran across some work by an illustrator who began many years ago using the physical media with which we are so accustomed, but now his works are completely digital. In this post and the one to follow several of his images will appear, all of which are copyrighted, but he has okayed their posting. As you will see, his subjects are diverse, ranging from automotive through aeronautical, railroad, and marine and even touch botanical (I am not posting any of that genre). His name is Donn Thorson, and he has been illustrating for over 45 years.

First is a 1959 Ford Thunderbird
Posted Image

Next is a Curtiss SOC Seagull, a catapult-launched scout plane first flown in 1934
Posted Image

Next is the Pratt & Whitney Wasp Major aircraft engine - 28-cylinder radial, 4360ci, up to 4300hp, from c.1944-55
Posted Image

Last for this post is the Union Pacific Big Boy locomotive, a 4-8-8-4 from c.1941

On a side note. The USS Constitution is set to sail on August 19 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of her victory over the British frigate HMS Guerriere in the War of 1812. It is the first time she has set sail on her own since 1997.A coincidence?

Just off the cuff, I would say so...
I know that I was unaware of the upcoming voyage, so, from at least my part in it, the two events are unrelated...
If we can be absolutely certain they didn't decide to sail her because they someknow knew that I would post the image... yeah, well then...

It would appear that neither side had prior knowledge of the other's intent or actions - I think that makes their occurring, though suspiciously juxtaposed, just a coincidence. That conclusion is a bit difficult for me, because I'm really not sure that coincidences are a naturally occurring phenomena.

Just an update on Marc (Macoran).

He is well and in good health and has just returned from holiday. Though he is currently suffering the heat and humidity in Holland.

Hopefully he will be back posting and identifying the various artists and drawing styles again soon.

Here is another cutaway from the pages of Flying magazine from the early 1950's:
Posted Image the Douglas DC-7, drawn by Robert S. Wallace. I am not aware of other examples of his work.
This airplane was a contemporary of the Comet 1, posted above. As indicated by the registration number on its right wing, American Airlines was its first operator. While it was one of the best of an obsolesing technology, the Comet was the harbinger of what was to come in commercial air travel.

The real car was slightly odd looking (still, one of the few VWs I like). This is very odd looking. :well:
There is a signature in front of the rear wheel. The scan is unfortunately not good enough to read.

It looks as if this is a rather soft printed image, and probably a bit small, but the signature appears as if it could be our old friend Herbert Schlenzig. The script is very similar, but I have nothing this modern that appears to have been done my Mr. Schlenzig. Anyone else think this could be correct? Very much open to suggestions.

Thought that things had slowed down a bit again, so pulled a couple of more automotive illustrations to flavor things for a Sunday night. All are Alfa Romeos by Bruno Betti. The first is the classic early champion of the modern Formula 1 series, the Alfa-Romeo. 159 from 1951. It was taken from a copy of Milleruote dedicated to Alfa history.
