This is another John Weal piece out of Air International, July of 1974. The Avia B-534-I was the early 1934 version of the Czechoslovakian fighter that was to meet the Germans later after the beginning of hostilities.

This is the more advanced version of the Avia Czechoslovakian fighter from the 30s, the Avia B-534-IV from 1935. The comparison between the two illustrations by John Weal is rather interesting. This was also out of the July, 1974 issue of Air International.

Before the turn of the century, when there were a number of artists doing cutaways, a successful Formula 1 car attracted a lot of attention. So it was with the 1986 Williams FW11, which won ten GP's that year and the Constructor's Championship. A search of our index lists a number of FW11 illustrations, and here is another, from Paulo D'Alessio:

This is the innovative Arado Ar0234B-2 Blitz, the first operational German Jet Bomber of 1944.

For those who might be interested in what the Arado 234B-2 looks like from the other side, I found this unannotated and unattributed drawing in a scale modeling magazine a long time ago:

Here's the latest cutaway masterpiece by your own Tony Matthews at Mac's Motor City Garage.com: The 1994 Penske PC23, easily one of the most important Indy cars in history. Seven wins in a row and two 1-2-3 podium sweeps at Milwaukee and Portland... and was the vessel for the infamous Ilmor Mercedes 500I that tore up the Speedway rulebook. The story includes, as always, Tony's first-hand account.

Thank-you for posting this. I finally "liked" the page on Facebook, but should have done this before. I like hearing the background on the illustration, as there seems to always be some kind of story behind how these things get done. Hearing this from a guy who I consider to be one of the best to ever do this type of illustration makes this some pretty special background, and much different from all the car history presentations. We need that extra personality, so these accounts are wonderful for this forum. Always look forward to the new ones.

I finally finished assembling the Marsden and Hatchard illustration of the Airbus A319 Corporate Jet. This was one of the posters that they product, running in Flight International, the October 10, 2000 issue. This was a bit of a pain, as it had a blue background that I could not get to match between the scans. I guess I will have to shut off the automatic stuff next time, as I don't want to have to clean out all of that background stuff again. Would be a nice vehicle for cruising around the world a bit.

The other piece for today is the 1970s trainer and light ground attack aircraft, the BAC 167 Strikemaster Mark 88, first flown in 1970. This is John Weal's illustration of the aircraft out of Air Enthusiast, March, 1973 issue. I think I have another large Flight International piece on the Concorde coming up, and I have been putting it off ... maybe I need to do a few more cars first, just to build up some enthusiasm.

Wanted to finally clear this 4-part scan and get it out of the file. This illustration of the pre-operational BAC/Aerospatiale Concored was out of Air International, February, 1976, and was posted with a Pilot Press copyright, but no artist signature. If any of you have a reference on the artist, please pass it along.

I group my cutaway images according to automotive makes. When I came across a Terry Collins cutaway of the Benetton B192 in an early issue of Racecar Engineering, I checked my folders and found that I had downloaded this image from page 56 of this forum:

Posted Image

When I compared it with the image in the magazine I found that certain blank areas in the original posting of the racecar were, here, filled with a sponsor's advertising . . . cigarette advertising:
Posted Image
Now, my question is: Did the car participate in any GPs sans the Camel ads? And, if not, why would an illustration of that car have the "offending" ads erased?
Here is Paulo D'Alessio's drawing of the same car from a similar perspective:

Tobacco advertising was restricted at the British and German GPs. At these races the words 'Marlboro', 'Camel' etc were removed from the cars. The Camel-sponsored cars all still carried a number of images of the camel, including several on the rear wing of the B192. These don't appear on the Collins cutaway - I wonder why.

Edit: there are several photos of the B192 in the 1992 British GP on this page:

Thank you, Tim, for finding those fine photos of the Benetton B192. I notice that, back in '92, where the "Camel" wording was banned, more of the camel imagery replaced it on the front wing endplates and the lower rear wing. Interestingly, the cars running in the 2008 festivals had it both ways. That first photo shows that McLaren just replaced the word "Marlboro" in the upper rear wing with the team name.

Thought I would post my latest piece, just completed last Wednesday, digitally scanned around 11 that evening, and reworked to clean it up a bit on Thursday, then printed for an autograph sheet for the original owner and one of the Honorees at the California Hot Rod Reunion. At the time, this was one of the nastiest dragsters in Southern California. Blew up a lot of pieces, but would always run 10+ mph faster than almost everyone out there. The Brissette and Sutherland car was one of the first versions of the modern configuration for a front-engined dragster. This car, in particular, was one of those no-frills cars, although it did have paint on it, that was about as essential a car from the mid-60s that you will ever see.
The owner and builder is a modeler who was very well known for his highly accurate 1/25 scale models of dragsters, Roger Lee. Roger started to have eye problems in the small scale, so he moved up to 1/16 scale, and started having problems there as well, so he moved up and built this wonderful recreation at 1:1. I was kidding him that he needed to stay with the optometrist, or his next project would end up being 2:1 .. and he would have to buy a much larger trailer.
Not the best or most detailed piece ever, but it has been on the board for almost two years, so it felt like I was looking at it forever. Just not in the psychology to put the work in because of that torn up hip that i now have, so it has been tough to concentrate on things like this lately. This was a big step, and I have another going on the board tomorrow morning ... so this was, indeed, a big step.
Thanks for listening.
Tom West

Thanks, Tony. This is one of those clingers that one gets on occasion. The hip got to me a bit and really knocked down my ability to work on these things, so it felt really good to complete this one. Not my best, and there are couple of areas that I changed to show some things better .. not sure I like how that turned out, but the overall impression isn't bad, if I can say that.
Thanks for the support; really great from someone for whom I have such great respect. Thank-you.

I am not sure of the artist, but I just had this scanned while I was having that dragster done. Took a few days to finish up the cleanup. I am guessing that this is an internal piece from Boeing on the Boeing B-17 Super Fortress, thinking it is an F or G variant, but some of you may have another view. I had borrowed this 4-foot-long print from someone, so no idea of its source.
Anyone ever seen this previously?

That's a nice one, Tom. I had not seen this example before and I love seeing those original manufacturer's cutaways. With the chin turret it's a B-17G "Flying Fortress". The "Super Fortress" was the B-29. One question though: Why is the resolution so low?

Correct, I had been working on cleaning up this thing and dealing with a bunch of stuff after returning from the drag racing reuinion ... Thinking sort of the right thing, just not the correct details. Sorry about that.
I brought it down to something like 3500 pixels across, I think, the original scan was done at 40% and I brought it down from there. It should not look horrible if you take it up to 100% of what is left, I would think. i think that my scan is around 10.500 pixels across ... something like that

Perhaps I've been missing something here. How does one change the resolution of a download from ImageShack? Once the image contains 134 kilobytes of information, isn't that all you are going to see?
