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?


You are right, it won't come up well. i was talking about taking it down so it will work well here. I don't post huge files here from the "originals" that I find. I like to have them a bit tighter with the slightly smaller stuff. Even the Badrocke, Weal stuff from Air International comes down to about half the size of my original scans when I post them. The original on the B-17 is close to 11 meg, and is too much for Imageshack in that form.

OK, let's try that B-17 again, just a bit larger this time. This is the piece that I am guessing is out of Boeing during World War II, taken from a rather large print as a digital scan. Hope this is a little better.

Just to continue the 4-engined heavy bomber theme: I wish I could find a B-29 cutaway as good as that B-17G. I have some good cutaways of sections of the B-29 fuselage, but not the entire airplane. The best I could do is this somewhat simple Douglas Rolfe cutaway of the Boeing B-50D Superfortress from the 1952/53 issue of Air Progress - History of Aviation:
Posted Image The B-50 was the last in the line of Boeing 4-engined heavy bombers that began with the XB-15, which is also illustrated in the cutaway. The "D" version pioneered the use of underwing fuel tanks, whch carried forward to the B-47 and B-52. Rolfe's annotations of the cutaway include some interesting items. Vertical and oblique cameras are shown located in the aft fuselage. This, together with the note about the range-extending bomb bay fuel tanks, makes me wonder if he picked up some information about the RB-50 version. These were used for shallow-penetration overflights of Soviet Siberian territory 60 years ago, and, of course, were very secret at that time.

I had a neighbor who served as a gunner on the strategic bomber version of the B-50. He told me that if it ever came of war, their crews knew that they were, in all probability, going on one-way missions into the Soviet Union. He must have looked back on his service with a bit of nostagia, as he purchased one of those sighting blisters, as surplus, and intalled it in a wall of his garden shed.

Good find! Thanks, Jian10. I should have realized that if a cutaway has been done of a airplane, Mike Badrocke or "Aviagraphica" has done it. He must be the most prolific aviation cutaway artist ever.

As a side comment, I note that the B-29 carried cameras in the aft fuselage, so they must be a standard BDA (Bomb Damage Assessment) fit. Next to them is the auxiliary power unit, the infamous item that caught fire on the "Kee Bird", when it was being recovered from the Greenland ice cap a decade or so ago. The entire plane was consumed.

Two earlier versions of the Peugeot 905 Group C racecar by E.T.A.I. have been posted (see posts 9,568 and 10,021), but I believe this to be the final version, memorializing Peugeot's 1992 Le Mans victory:
Posted Image
This was from Vol 2 No 4 of Racecar Engineering. The cutaway is curiously lacking in much detail and differs from one of the previous images in adding material to the top of the radiator duct to provide space for the winning drivers' names. This would ordinarily be the location of the door, but, controversialy, Peugeot interpreted the ACO rules to allow a hatch in the side window to qualify as a door. This image also fails to show the engine exhaust ahead of the rear-wheel cutout and deletes the word "Peugeot" from the lower plane of the rear wing and sponsor's names from the top plane, which photos of the winning car show.

Here's a very special Tony Matthews cutaway at Mac's Motor City Garage.com.

This is a seldom-seen, one year-only engine, the Ilmor 265B, and it's still in progress, so Tony is showing his work, as it were. Look at the drawing section below. I could study this stuff all day... oh wait, I do.

Hino Samurai by Takashi Jufuku.

Posted Image

.
Sorry, I can't let this one pass without some commentary for those who might wonder, what is a "Hino Samurai"? This was a one-off concept car that was designed in 1967 by Peter Brock and built in Culver City, California by Troutman and Barnes. It was done for the Japanese Hino car company and powered by a modified 1,293 cc Hino Contessa engine and produced about 110 BHP. When completed it was sent to Japan to compete in the '67 Japanese GP at Fuji raceway. There seems to be some confusion as to why it did not compete in that race although it generated a lot of local press attention for its advanced design, featuring an integral movable rear wing. Brock says the car did not progress any further after Hino's president died and the company was taken over by Toyota. The car returned to the United States and competed in the SCCA C-Sports Racing class. This picture was taken about 1970 at Willow Springs raceway in Southern California:

I have four more pieces for you this evening, following up on some of the earlier Betti pieces out of that Milleruote monograph on Alfa Romeo.
We start with the Alfa Romeo Giulietta Coupe, that ran from 1955 through 1964, by Bruno Betti under the Quatroruote copyright.

I had forgotten this one yesterday when I posted all the Betti Alfa illustrations, so thought I would get this in to complete the waiting pieces from our Italian brothers.
This is Giulio Betti's illustration of the Aston Martin Virage V8 from the November, 1991 issue of Quattroruote. I can speak highly of their use of the cutaway art, just not overly happy about the way they printed, or the binding that tends to butcher the illustrations when you try to assemble them. Still comes out OK if you put a little work into them ... more would help smooth out the pitted printing.

To accompany it is Yoshihiro Inomoto's sort of exploded cutaway of the engine that powered it, the Honda RA122E/B V12.

This car/engine combination did reasonably well during the 1992 season, winning five of the sixteen GP races (three for Senna, two for Berger), but was up against the formidable Williams FW14B.

Here are a couple of Lotus engines, the first is Vic Berris's rendition of the Lotus Twincam, the early version of 1,499 cc. It appears that this has been posted but is no longer available. The original was printed in the Autocar, 12 October 1962:
Posted ImageThis was the engine of the Elan, the Lotus 23B, the Ford Cortina-Lotus, and later versions of the Europa.
The second is the Lotus LV240 by Barber from the Motor of September 6, 1969:
Posted ImageThis was the racing version (note the Tecaemit-Jackson fuel injection) of the Vauxhall-based engine that was first used in the Jensen Healey, later in Lotus's own Esprit, Elite (Type 75), and Eclat.

Continuing with a Lotus theme, here are a couple of (not too detailed) images from an Autocar Special Report of 20 September 1979:
Posted Image The Lotus Elite (Lotus 75) of 1974 by Hostler.
Posted Image The Lotus 78 Formula 1 car of 1977-1978. This illustration is unattributed, but I believe it may also be from Hostler, as he seemed to be a regular contributor to Autocar during this period. This car began the "ground effects" era of Formula 1 racing, but the drawing doesn't reveal any secrets as to how it was achieved. Even the skirt along the edge of the sidepod is only hinted and the underwing shape is obscured.
