Took a while to get these two done, but finally did it. These were really messed up from the printing ... looks like maybe a bit of bad statwork, too.
Anyway, one of the classic Cavara pieces from the Italian Auto Club book, this being the 1960 Ferrari 156 Formula 1 with the 65° V6 engine. Interesting that they ran the two engine configurations that year.

I want to mix up the subjects a bit for everyone, so here are a couple of Boeing bomber projects for the evening. The first is the Boeing 299, the B-17G Flying Fortress, as illustrated by Alfonso Rigato.

The second is also a B-17, but this is the earlier B-17C Flying Fortress out of 1940. This is the John Weal illustration out of Air International, December, 1974 issue.

A couple of very minor nitpicks here:

This is the F2 car as raced in a couple of F2 races and the Italian GP in 1960. It only ever used the 65° V6 engine. The famous F1 'Sharknose' from 1961 used both the 65° and 120° versions of the V6 engine, in a rather different chassis.

McLaren used the TAG-Porsche engined MP4-3 in 1987. The Honda-engined MP4-4 raced in 1988, famously winning 15 out of 16 of that year's F1 GP races.

It's a Case IH Axial-Flow 8120 combine harvester. Build from 2010-2012. You can say that's a pretty big lawnmower.

Tim, Not going to defend the descriptions here, as they came directly from the publications where they were pulled. I really don't make up the captions ... that is why I have kept all the magazines and books. Means I don't have to remember all this type of stuff for myself. Don't tell me that I now have to remember it anyway???

No reflection on you at all, Tom - I know you wouldn't knowingly post duff gen. But it's always a good idea to get things right IMHO, so that Ibsen's index is correct, for example. :)

It's nice to see aircraft cutaways from sources other than Air International and Air Enthusiast. In that vein here is a web find that adds to the collection of cutaways from the Das brothers that I have previously posted. It is the Douglas DC-7C and illustrated from a somewhat unusual angle. I don't know which brother (or, perhaps, both) is the responsible artist:

The cutaway doesn't quite carry the visual impact of this car. One enters by opening the windshield/windscreen. It is currently on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, as an example of the work of Italian design houses, in this case Bertone. I don't think Mr. Betti has captured the exterior color of the car, either:

Mikoyan Guerevich I-360 cutaway, this was the game that gave birth to the rear of the successful MiG-19, which was built in both the Soviet Union and the Republic of China under license initially, after breaking relations for ideological reasons, was built in much greater numbers than in their home country, where he erred obsolete, something that Vietnam would demonstrate his total worth trying with their heavy guns of 30 mm and exceptional maneuverability, the first prototype began his career in 1951 as a MiG-17 cell modified to accept two Mikulin AM-5 engines was known as I-340, these engines were axial flow and had a small frontal area, which is necessary if they were to the new fighter was supersonic in level flight, he quickly built a version with wings strongly aflechadas with 55 degrees of deflection and aerodynamic guide brackets "Fences" lower than those used in the final model, which is called I-360 remember that the model I-350 was a big game on one engine, this game had horizontal surfaces on top of the tail drift known as "T", this arrangement soon proved inefficient at high angles of attack at suffered extensive re-design that positioned in the upper fuselage design corrected this deficiency, yet reached a top speed of Mach 1.04 in level flight, the airbrakes kept very close to the nozzle as the MiG-17, the final model had an increase in the area of drift and change to one piece stabilizers hence the name MiG-19S, is re-positioned the brakes to the rear wing was added and also a ventral airbrake, original author WEAL Motocar modified to recreate this prototype version of MiG I-360, uploaded with ImageShack.us

But as it isn't a cutaway and is from an unhelpful angle it doesn't show what's going on at all well.
I'm sure someone did a better drawing once.

Yep, I agree. It's a shame. There must be better out there.

In its defense, I think it is merely an illustration of the external modifications, the switch from welding to bolts. A torsion anti-roll bar now linking the front springs, etc.

There's a photo in Peter Browning's "Profile" No 71 looking inwards from threequarter front which shows it well. Can't be doing with photo host sites so can't post it here.

This rather colorful rendition of a Douglas DC-8 is interesting for a couple of reasons other than its yellow sky. It is the cover of Popular Science magazine, I believe the April 1958 issue. I used to subscribe to this magazine, and I think this is the only time its cover consisted of a four-page foldout. It is typical of the way, more than 50 years ago, that cutaways were used to promote technology and air travel. Many airlines used cutaways in their advertisements to promote the features of their airliners. (Although I have to chuckle at the area where the label for the "Tourist" section appears... talk about lack of amenities!) The artist of this cutaway I believe to be Robert McCall. If so, this must be one of very few that he had done. He was an artist for Life magazine, illustrating their serialization of Walter Lord's book, Day of Infamy. He later became a well-known artist of aerospace subjects. A large mural of his greets visitors the the National Air and Space Museum in Washington, D.C.

Here are cutaways of aircraft that are rarely seen, done by less-well-known illustrators. The first is a web-find, the Douglas C-133 Cargomaster by Robert Wallace:
Posted Image I've encountered Mr. Wallace's work only once before on the Douglas DC-7 I posted earlier. From the information that accompanied this illustration Mr. Wallace was a technical illustrator for Douglas Aircraft. From these two examples I would speculate that he was employed at their Long Beach division. I wonder if, somewhere, there are other cutaways by him, of other Long Beach products such as the C-124 and the DC-9, Series10. The original of this illustration hangs in the museum of Travis Air Force Base in northern California, where the West-coast squadron that operated this aircraft was based. As a cargo hauler this airplane didn't get much attention. It was used to deliver Atlas and Titan ballistc missiles to their bases in the U.S. and, after its military service, a couple of examples passed into civilian hands and wound up in Alaska hauling oil field equipment. When I was a youngster I always thought that it looked rather like a flying Weinermobile.
Another cargo aircraft that saw a lot of service during the Vietnam era and after was the Lockheed C-141A Starlifter. This illustration comes from the Flying Review, Vol. 19, No. 4. The cutaway carries no attribution, but as the four-view that accompanied the article was by Endsleigh Castle, I assume that this was done by him, also.
Posted Image

Posted Image Finally, we have the rarely seen Convair 990 Coronado. This illustration was done by J. F. Wixey, who may have been employed by Convair, and comes from a research report in the Winter 1978 issue of the Journal of the American Aviation Historical Society. Unfortunately, no key referring to the numbered features accompanied the illustration.
The aircraft is rarely seen as only 37 of this version were produced. This airplane had a couple of interesting features, as can be noted on the cutaway. It was promoted for its speed, able to reach Mach 0.91. This was due in part to a thin wing. However, the supersonic flow over the wing caused drag-inducing trailing edge flow separation when it slowed to subsonic speed through a shock wave. Those canoe-shaped fairings at the trailing edge weakened the shock and reduced the drag. The airplane encountered other drag-related problems during testing which delayed the delivery of airplanes that could meet the speed guarantees to airlines, causing cancellations and a lack of further orders. The 990 was powered by a civil version of the General Electric J-79 engine which featured a turbofan located at the aft end of the engine. This unusual configuration was not seen again until the "unducted fan" proposals of the late '80s.
