Thanks for this image, Ibsen... I have two others of it, but not as large or clear. The artist isn't technically unknown, as both of my images have a signature. It is missing on the one you posted and the one on page 45 is too small to be clear. The signature is a circled P - does anyone know who that is?

Just for reference, the only other illustration that I have seen with that Circle-P signature was the Skirrow Special, and interesting little V-Twin Kart looking thing that was posted by 'werks, on page 248. I had never seen it before, but have it saved under that name. It would be nice to put a name to this artist. It seems like you need to establish your reputation in a particular field before you can go with the one-letter thing.

Thought I would put this up instead of saving it for more to go with it. This is a piece from Aerei magazine out of Italy, as printed in a special cutaway edition. This is Alfonso Rigato's rendition of the Lockheed F-94B Starfire out of 1949. Another of the early jet fighters that I told you would be coming along.

Gang, for those of you who are either aircraft fans, or just general cutaway fans, I just got teh fifth edition of Aeroplane Collectors' Archive, the Golden Age of Flying-boats
You can tell that this one is an earlier era, as there are not nearly as many of the aircraft covered by cutaways as in the previous editions.
It does have some interesting photo coverage on a number of flying boats from the 30s, with cutaways of the following ...
Short S.17 Kent - Unsigned - brush illustrated b&w print.
Short S.17 Kent - Unsigned - color piece that looks like it could have been a promotional piece.
Short S.19 Singapore III - Unsigned - B&W line illustration.
Supermarine Southampton Mk. II - by Lyndon Jones - B&W Line illustration.
Supermarine Walrus - Unsigned - brush illustrated b&w print.
Supermarine Scapa - Unsigned - brush illustrated b&w print.
Supermarine Stranraer - by M.A. Barnes - B&W Line Illustration.
Bristol Pegasus X Radial - by James H. Clark - B&W Line Illustration.
I saw a listing of future titles for this series a while ago, and it seemed like they were going to get into a bit more modern subjects, still sounded like they were sticking with British aircraft yet, but it also sounded like there would be better coverage with the cutaways.
Just wanted you to know this was available.

747-100 Side Cutaway

It's above my skillset, but those able stitchers amongst you might be interested in a large, colour, side-view cutaway of Air France's 747-100 that is available on the Airchive website here.

Seeing that has reminded me that I did a similar illustration for Air New Zealand, via Saatchi and Saatchi. It went right to left, but was otherwise identical. I have never seen this one, I wonder if they were done at the sae time. Mine, I think, was wheels-up...

Wow! No, nearly perfect. I was trying to eliminate those breaks, but you've done a lot better. The reconstruction of the rear landing gear bogie and the interior seating is remarkable, as is the resolution. Congratulations on your work. :clap:

As I reread these posts it seems to me that my comments about the annoying stripes could be taken as a criticism of what Jian10 posted - they were not meant as such! I was thrilled by his posting, which perfectly aligned and spaced the four segments and greatly reduced the effort of filling in the blanks.

My comments about voids left between the pieces of multiple page images is a general sense of loss for me - it seems like most of the time when an image is spread across multiple pages such a gap is created even when the person scanning the pages takes the book/magazine apart and scans them separately because of less than perfect alignment of the originals. I guess I shouldn't grouse - it gives me something to do in my dotage.

(ps... thanks for the kind comments)
Peter

A variety for today - cars and boats and planes, oh my...
First, a luxury car seldom driven by the masses (and virtually never seen in this country), the Tatra 613 by Kral.
Posted Image

Next, a French flying boat from 1931, the Latécoère Late 300 - a civilized means of transportation for those who could afford it - later used by the military. Artist unidentified.
Posted Image

Next, the luxury liner SS United States - A bit slower, possibly more civilized means of transportation 20 years later. She was operated by United States Lines from 1951-69 and was built to capture the Atlantic crossing record. Drawn by Rolf Klep.
Posted Image

Next, a more rapid means of transport for business or pleasure for those with the means - Cessna Citation XL (also known as the 560XL) from 1996 - a joint effort by Mike Badrocke, Giuseppe Picarella, & Tim Brown.
Posted Image

Last, something that was not so much a means of transportation as a means of adventure, the Lunar Landing Module from 1969, drawn by Frank Munger.

I am far from an expert on this subject, but there was something rather Lagonda looking about the grille, and the emblem. I looked some things up on the Internet, and it appears that it might be a Lagonda Rapier from the late 30s. Is that possible as the subject. I know that some of Mr. Crosby's other work involved Rapier projects.

Occasionally, the large aircraft manufacturers required a cutaway illustration to show some particular engineering feature. Here is such an illustration done by an F. Johnson for the McDonnell Douglas Aircraft Corporation, which shows the size and complexity required integrate the DC-10 Series 10 No. 2 engine and inlet duct into the vertical tail support structure. A bit of humor is added by having a flight attendant (or stewardess as they were referred to back then) standing in the duct and providing some scale to the structure. The real purpose of this illustration is open to speculation, as it seems to be dated to 1977, while the Series 10 airplane had made its first flight nearly seven years earlier.
Posted Image
As a reminder of what the rest of the airplane looked like, here is one of John Marsden and Frank Munger’s exhaustive cutaways of the DC-10 Series 30 done for the 13 March 1969 issue of Flight International. Curiously, this not only appeared a year before the first flight of the Series 10 version, but three years before that of the Series 30. A higher resolution version of this cutaway can be purchased at www.flightglobalimages.com/.../boeing-dc-10-30-published-13-03-69.html, but their reproductions of earlier cutaways omit the details and numbered notations. I like to know what are all those little bits that the illustrator has bother to show, so I have included the key.

I just looked up your Talbot 14/45, and it seems to show up as a Weymann Coupe of 1929. Better than my Lagonda-Rapier guess, i can tell you that ...
