I must say that I try to maintain a balance between these two genres of interest. Tough crossover, but I try.

Brockbank contemplates the cutaway genre!

Hello, it was nice to see Frank's drawing of the Morgan. I have a high quality scan of this drawing taken from the original, which was drawn on Bristol board. The copyright for this image is owned by Flightline Arts and Frank's daughter. There is no problem with showing this image. I'm sure that Frank would have been chuffed to see it. The date on the drawing is 1950. My interest is in where it was published. Can you help?

Thanks Tim. I thought it must be a rarity. It is unusual to find a work in which the cutaway artist is illustrating their own project/vehicle.

The date on the drawing is 1950. My interest is in where it was published. Can you help?
Tim Hall

Yes, Edit: according to the 'Morgan Three Wheeler Gold Portfolio, first published in 'Light Car', Dec 30th, 1932. (But then that doesn't tally with the 1950 date, so I assume 1932 is wrong). And then very definitely published among the collected articles included in the 'Morgan Three Wheeler Gold Portfolio 1910- 1952', on Page 54. I hope that is helpful.

The MG reminds me some of a unfinished project (with cutaways) called the Wasp that someone was building in "Sports Car Graphic" magazine in the 60s'. I believe the builder may have passed away before the project was finished. Does anyone know anything about the Wasp?

Great memory ... June, 1964 issue of Sports Car Graphic. It does have a similarity to this one, but I like this better. I have the pieces scanned to put the drawing together, but it was one of those overlay things with red for the body and the shapes with black for the chassis ... did not look at it closely, but it appeared to be one of those typical print jobs like that where registration closer than 1/4" is considered to be just fine. Will see what I can do with it ... but ...
I am going to put up three pieces that I played with over the last couple of days. All aircraft out of Blackburn.
The first of these pieces is the interesting Blackburn Firebrand TF Mk IV out of 1942. The illustration is a Pilot Press copyright under Aviagraphica/Mike Badrocke in the July, 1978 issue of Air International.

My second illustration for the afternoon is a rather iconic attack aircraft in the British inventory, the Blackburn Hawker Siddeley Buccaneer S2B from 1996. This one is over a Mike Badrocke signature in the March, 2007 issue of Air International.

The last one today is one of those aircraft that seemed to come out of Britain between the war; rather looking like the same people designed these as designed London Cabs, but very British looking. This is the Blackburn Skua from 1937. They did fly from a few of the carriers, but were mainly used for training after a brief time. This is a John Weal piece out of Air Enthusiast, November, 1977.

Hello Tom, Certainly interesting. Earlier this week I made some comments on Frank Mungers Morgan drawing. Some years ago I worked for a small technical publications company in the South of England. One of the blokes I worked with was called Trevor Seymour and he was a Morgan enthusiast, who owned a Morgan three wheeler. When the Morgan bulletin came in he would read it at work with engineering authographic drawings piled up so that the boss could not see him reading the publication. We all knew this was happening as there were often comments of "Rubbish" and worse.
So what is the link with the Skua. Well his father "Horse" Seymour was the first airman in Britain during the Second World War to shoot down an enemy aircraft. He was a Petty Officer telegraphist/gunner in a Skua and shot down a Dornier Do 18 on the 26th Sept 1939. The ship he was flying from was the Ark Royal.
There was a later version of this aircraft built called the Roc, which had a turret behind the pilot.

Tim,
You actually had me fascinated to see how you were going to bring that around, and you did it very nicely. I just pulled a couple of items that I caught from the little block of copy that scanned with part of the image, so beyond that tiny hole looking through the fence, I know nothing about the Skua. I just thought that there were a lot of those "British" looking aircraft at that time. You would generally not look at this and think it could have been anything else but British.
By the way, what the hell is a Skua I assume that is is some sort of attack seabird ... always reminds me of John Cleese selling albatross in the movie theatre ... or gannet on a stick.
Can we expect to see much new in the way of cutaway work from your group? Some good stuff, and much appreciated.
Tom West

OK, enough of this bleedin' seabird flavor ...
How about a couple of cars again? Seems, somehow, appropriate. I moved out of alphabetic order to dig into a few old magazine scans, with a few more to come after this little group. These are all Gordon Bruce pieces out of the early 1960s, starting with his BRM V8 Formula 1 from Car and Driver, September, 1962. Sorry for the callouts, but will leave them in there anyway ...

Last Gordon Bruce piece for the moment, this is the Cooper Type 72 out of Sports Car Graphic, October, 1964. There are a few more of these sitting in pieces that I will do before going back to the aircraft.
Also thought I would take the opportunity to change the avatar .. been a while.

Hello Tom,
Yep still 'Burning and Turning'. Just completed the 747-8 and now on the International Space Station - Big is'nt the word.
Keep up the good work.

p.s. the Space Shuttle drawing shown on the Ibsenop page is definitely John Marsdens.

Thought I would complete a couple of images for you that have been sort of stuck in my process. Both are a bit of a pain because the printing isn't exactly the best ... looks less like offset printing than it does sponge printing, especially when you bring it up large to be able to dig into it a bit. The first is not exactly one of my favorites, but it is certainly a bit of a classic subject from Gordon Bruce. This is a Lotus 24 out of the September, 1962 issue of Sports Car Graphic. Between the paper and the printing, this one took quite a while to clean up, and I can't say it will ever be the most pleasant rendition of a Lotus that you will ever see. At least it is something different for you.

And ... speaking of something different, this is something that might bring a bit of a grin. On occasion, the magazines will allow those boring artists to run off on their own accord and have some fun with their artwork. This would have to be deemed one of those for Gordon Bruce, who created this early 1960s Japanese Formula 1 entrant. I think this is more typical of what folks would have expected from a Japanese builder at the time than the Honda, which actually did work. There is a whole story built around the heritage of the car, along with the callouts for the technical aspects of the car, which you might find to be a bit of fun. This is the Kogato Mark II Formula 1 car from the June, 1963 issue of Sports Car Graphic.

I put a bit more time into a couple of pieces from my to-be-completed files, both by Cavara from the Italian Automobile Club publication that I have worked with previously. They are related pieces, starting with the 1961 Ferrari 156, with the 120° V6 engine.

The second Cavara Italian Auto Club piece is the Ferrari 120° V engine used in the Ferrari 156 Formula 1 car out of 1961.
Just a bit different. It is interesting to see how dinged up these pieces have gotten, and how relatively crude they are in the first place when you take them up large to clean up.

And thank you for the Space Shuttle by John Marsden.


Isn't that funny... as I was posting it I was thinking how much like the 906 the image appeared - but it was labeled 380-II so I didn't look further - pretty obvious if you look at the rear end or engine compartment. Thanks for correcting the labeling on one of my images (now I just have to figure out how it got so labeled). oops...

Thought I would post another thing that I salvaged out of the August, 2005 issue of MotorSport. I was picking these up because they had a series that they were running about historic cars, and built around a cutaway. The magazine seemed to be mainly car sales, so I pulled the articles, scanned and tossed the rest of the magazine. There were a couple of interesting things in there, however, including this Paolo D'Alessio piece on the 1979 Fittipaldi F6 Formula 1 car. It looks like the illustration might have been taken from the layout of another magazine when it was run in 2005, so another one that does not have the best of original source material here. Still interesting to see this stuff, I hope ... adds to the database anyway.
