XF8U-3 "Crusader III" Cutaway, the best fighter that I have ever tasted failed U.S. Navy "Navy" (something similar happened to the Grumman F11F-2 Supertiger), this draft board game lost to another project and would later become a legend the McDonnell F4H-2 Phantom, in those years represented the morning while the Vought XF8-U was considered a mere evolution of the F-8 Crusader II already serving in the Navy, but was a new aircraft, with a fuselage with a deeper offset nose and stuffy train on the right, a new engine from Pratt & Whitney J75 J57 replacing the rider on the F-8 and as many armed fighters and the USAF, this power was almost 13 tons which gave a brilliant performance, did not exceed Mach 2.2 only for fear that their plexiglass cover is deformed by heat and was only using just over 60% of the power at that time, estimated that easily surpass Mach 2.8 and had a limit optimistic about Mach 3 at full power, kept his wing rear pivot system and two hydraulic jacks to facilitate landing and takeoff in turn had a new wing was a prodigy engineering because its thickness was reduced to only 5% in the socket and 4% in the marginal edges, also had two large folding fins much improved flight control at high speeds, however this system was a real pain head by continuous faults present hydraulic folding system, taking its pilots to land with flaps deployed, if something needs to be highlighted is the ability of the test pilots who managed to land without causing major damage to the aircraft, as we said lost to F4H-2 Phantom of the reasons given by the Navy for this was riding a radar with a range greater than 70 km while the XF8U-3 only reached 50 Km with APQ-74 radar This was housed in a new radome much more pointed and bulky pointing up (it made her look unattractive) its air intake lip extended to allow more air flow due to the increased needs of the new engine, turn this curious design allowed effective control of supersonic shock waves, had two doors on the sides to increase the volume of air at high angles of attack, in which these maneuvers was not very bright, on the other hand the McDonnell fighter pilot and two crew had a radar operator, something much appreciated Navy for long patrols fleet defense, while the tandem of the Crusader III was only a project no further than ink on paper, in speed lifting and maneuvering the fighter Vought was superior, should be armed in the final model with four 20 mm cannons (not present in this schematic section for lack of data on your location) as fixed armament, three AIM-7 Sparrow radar-guided and four AIM-9B infrared guide or AIM-9C guidance for semi-active radar defense missions fleet to surface missile attacks on radio guided AGM-12 Bullpup, unguided rockets and bombs fall Suni free, author Aviagraphica and modified by Motocar to recreate the schematic section of this game and uploaded to Flickr.

North American FJ-4 "Fury" Cutaway, the latest model of the F-86 in its naval version, this game had undergone so many modifications that fall into the category of a completely different plane that originated, their wings with a larger surface , folding wing and larger arrow to re-probe in-flight refueling under the left wing, the fuselage bigger and deeper with a fairing that ran from the cabin (now higher) to drift, this in turn had greater height and total area, its undercarriage track wider and lever shocks with a longer nose gear nose this uplifting takeoff facilitated by increasing the angle of attack when being catapulted its air intake was larger and square section, about the same were distributed four 20mm cannon that made his arms fixed, rather than a schematic is a general provision of unidentified author of the book taken FJ-4 Fury and come up with Flickr.

Ilyushin Il-54 bomber / torpedo Cutaway, Soviet supersonic designed as a substitute for the first series of Ilyushin Il-28 bombers with their centrifugal engines, this new proposal from the Ilyushin design bureau had new engines Lyulka Al-7 without afterburner and 8607 lbs of thrust, which allowed maximum speed performance close to Mach 1.25 these were very aerodynamic containers mounted under the wings of strong arrow of 45 degrees to a third of the rope and a thin profile, with stabilizing wheels in the marginal edges for stability on track since it used a retractable landing gear bicyclo with large wheels, this model lost to other twin-engine bomber Yakovlev Yak-25 on by the belief that bombers would soon be replaced by missiles, only two prototypes were built and the first had serious problems when taking off and landing, requiring very long runways, this defect was corrected by increasing the length of the train nose which could take off in shorter distances, because now the wing would have an angle of incidence of 10 degrees, few flights were made with the kind and soon the entire project was abandoned, however soon NATO assigned the name "blowlamp", its dimensions were 28.96 and 17.65 meters in length wingspan and a maximum weight of 41,600 kg and 2,050 kms of range at a height of 13,630 meters, with a maximum load of 6,000 kgs of weapons or the most normal of 3,000 kgs plus two-Rikher Nudelman cannon 23 mm for self-defense, author Aviagraphica and modified by Motocar to recreate the Ilyushin Il-54 up with Flickr, it is noteworthy that there are many images at most a photo is the only known, nor profiles cutaway help with this, sorry some elements are purely speculative in the absence of data.

A couple of images by John Batchelor this evening...

First, the venerable Douglas DC-3, first flown in 1935. This aircraft revolutionized air traffic in the 1930s and '40s. The civilian version had both overnight-berth and day-time variants (14 berths and 21 seats respectively, plus two crew members). 607 civilian variants were built. The military version, the C-47 Skytrain, was used extensively by the US government, 10,048 examplars being built. Another 4,937 were built under license in Russia by Lisunov, and 487 more were built under license in Japan by Mitsubishi. After the war, many of the military versions were converted to passenger or freight-carrying versions.
Posted Image

Next, the Curtiss Wright Cyclone 18 GR-3350, a 2-row, 18-cylinder supercharged radial engine of 3347 cubic inch capacity. During WWII four of these engines powered each of the B-29 Superfortress bombers and the Martin Mars flying boats (planned as maritime bomber, but ultimately used as transport/cargo). The former was widely used, 3,970 planes built; the latter very minimally, with only 2 prototypes and 5 production planes being built.

Sorry if I have been a little quiet lately, but there have been a few events going on over the last little while that have created some photo work to complete.
Thought I would step into my files and put out up there that is a little different, Sidney Allard's early-60s Chrysler dragster. This is a Gordon Bruce piece out of the December, 1961 Car and Driver, as part of a comparison article between the state-of-the-art in drag racing between the UK and the US. The US car represented was the short-lived Jocko Johnson rear-engined streamliner. The car was pretty spectacular for the time, and did forecast the rear-engined dragster by about ten years, but the technology of the aero body at the time was not allowing any of those experiments to actually work. I am still not really aware of one where a complete body design was ever really successful in drag racing, as almost all of them ran faster and quickly witout the bodies than with.
However, the Allard car was the early challenger out of UK, and was the host for the first US Drag Team that went to England around that time.
The dragster is being rebuilt in England at the moment, and is supposed to be completed this year from what I hear. I sent them scans of the article, and a high-res version of this illustration to use in the process, but I am really anticipating a color cutaway illustration from Eddie Wimble which is supposed to be getting done on the car. Eddie is an amazingly talented hot rod designer and illustrator who has done a handful of cutaways in the past, some pretty cool stuff.

It's a Betti drawing. I have it as a poster. Need to check who of the two did it. I think it was Bruno.

Edited to add: I just checked: the artist is Gulio Betti

Going to post a couple of car illustrations for you this evening, ot of that Italian Auto Club collection from Giovanni Cavara. These things were pretty scratched up and seem like they have seen a bit of rough play over the years before they were reproduced in this book.
I am starting with the 1958 illustration of the Formula 1 Ferrari 246.

Heinkel He-178V1 Cutaway, the first jet that flew around the world, thanks to the development of an effective and viable Hes-3 engine designed by Hans von Ohain, who was fortunate to be sponsored by Ernest Heinkel, the engine would evolve to be the Hes-8 that powered the twin-engine fighter failed project I-280, however this model demonstrator propulsive jet technologies (for those years also tested the rocket plane Heinkel He-176) your engine like the one designed by English engineer Frank Whittle centrifugal compressor using a robust, but that's where the similarities because the Hes-3 had an annular combustion chamber while the Whittle used a radial array camera reverse flow (as is known the annular end by winning jet engines until today) full metal construction aircraft with retractable landing gear with tail wheel classic, with a first prototype with short span wings (shown in this drawing) with the cockpit well advanced, its air intake was ahead and ran the conduit below the pilot's seat (this datum unspecified) its engine was centrally located and had a long nozzle to discharge the gases that ended in a rare departure rectangular , its tail surfaces were classic, autonomy was relatively short flight of only 10 minutes, this due to the small size of its fuel tank located just behind the front cockpit and engine, made its first flight piloted by Erich Warsitz on August 27, 1939 just days before the start of World War II, this aircraft did not survive the war after a bombing raid in 1943 which destroyed the Berlin Air Museum luck running like I-176 rocket plane, in recent years built a fairly faithful replica of this pioneer of aviation jet of two photos and their profile cutaway accompany this recreated by Motocar and uploaded to Flickr.

Just for comparison purposes illustrative drawings

Gloster E28/39 cutaway second aircraft jet world's (Heinkel He 178 was first) built by the British firm Gloster, to study the feasibility of the new motor plant and designed by Frank Whittle built by Jet Powers Ltd. Initially with a thrust of only 390 kg of Power Jets W.1 allowed off the prototype in just 1800 feet, then re-W.2 motorized with more powerful evolution with a push de798 kg, arming thought with four 7.7 mm Browning machine guns, although this not installed, two units were built, one of which was lost in a test flight without consequences for the rider who skydive, it's funny when we review the technique of this small plane rather simple construction with a few frames and ribs attached to its metal coating, I fail to occur in series but paved the way for more complete aircraft and more serious demeanor as the Gloster Meteor.

I think this is the 'First jet that flew' rather than 'First jet that flew around the world' which would mean the 'First jet to circumnavigate the world' which, I understand, was a DH Comet in 1955

Thanks for the comment. I was trying to stick with that selection of early jets, but figure this really is supposed to be more of a car site than an aircraft site, so I will try to keep moving through the Cavara material. Have a few pieces to assemble before I need to scan again ... next up will be the engine cutaway for the 290 and the 335 MM.
Also, changing out the Profile pic again for you ...

Hi gents, I have a friend who a couple of years ago bought a Lotus 101 F1 car in the yellow camel livery plus a spare JUDD engine. he is soon to strip down the oldest engine and I will pop along to photograph the event.

Do any of you know if a JUDD engine in the Lotus 101 has ever been illustrated .

I have asked Engineering Developments who I think built it but no answer as some blue rpints of any kind would be helpfull. After all it's an old engine now so no secrets.

many thanks

Roy,
Like the work, but it presents a little large when you include it in the post as you did. I went to your site and pulled them down to my site, to add to the collection here, but you may want to downsize a bit if you are going to add them to your post, or use ImageShack or one of those things so you just carry the link with the Post.
Like the work, and assume they were done on the computer. What are you working in for a Program? Mac or PC? Not that I want to start doing computer drawings ... still have one started that has been a real pain and still sits.
As to your Judd question, I thought it deserved a response. I was thinking that I had some Judd illustrations, but I was thinking of the Hart Turbo engines instead, sorry. I find no reference anywhere to a Judd illustration.
Maybe someone else has something that I missed.

Many thanks for the comments Tony and Tom, I will in future keep the image smaller on the website.
As to the JUDD Lotus 101 engine, I will keep looking but may just have to use photos.
Yes all work done on a pc, drawing board got sold off years ago. It is mainly glorified tracing but using eng drawings when available to get accuracy when photos are lacking clarity. I had access for a short while to all the BTCC NGTC drawings while working for Welch motorsport then BTCC changed from dropbox to another system and the end for me on that project.

I like that very much, the high res version at full size shows some detail and I suppose if it is for a PR piece at A4 print then looks good. 3DMax type software I am guessing not airbrush / photoshop.

Just a reminer that the archives of 'Flight' magazine contains a wealth of illustration over and above those highlighted thus far.

My tip is to pick a year from an era that interests you (Pre-Wright Bros, WWI, WWII, Cold-War Jet-Age, etc) and browse through it. The scans have been done with OCR so you can search for specific terms (like 'Sketch', 'Drawing', 'Artist', etc)

Apart from the whole-aircraft drawings, there's a ton of fine illustrations that accompany articles in the magazine. For example:-

(L-R: 1912, 2x1936, 1942)

During my browsing thus far, I've stumbled across these nuggets:-
"As a matter of interest, the first cut-away drawing to appear in our columns was that of a D.H. Puss Moth, in the issue of December 15, 1932. It was the copyright of our associated journal The Motor Cycle, which periodically apprised its readers of technical developments in other fields."

and, upon the occasion of Max Millar's retirement in 1961:
"..The most notable of Mr Millar's aeronautical drawings were, perhaps, those produced during the late war, among which he regards that of the Rolls-Royce Merlin as his best."

I hope you don't mind my playing around with your post, but I have always liked these exploded view drawings of Giorgio Piola. I think they explain a lot, but I would also like to see them done as a cutaway. Your post of the McLaren MP4-2C got me to consider this again, and I thought I would take a shot and see if they might be made into a cutaway ... besides, it fits more to the theme of the board. Just fulfilling something I have looked at for a while here.
This isn't the greatest way to do this, as a relatively low res image sort of clogs up anyway, so when you start layering pieces, it gets worse. I think that I might simplify a bit if I try this again ... and I am tempted.
Something fresh from old produce here ...

I have looked up my file on Antonio Eiras, and his McLaren illustrations from that time (the MP4 series of cars) does not look like this. Even translating them to b&w from the color, they would look different. I checked out all of my McLaren stuff, and cannot find anything that looks like these, but I would like to be able to give attribution to these pieces, as well.

Urbane or urban? Or both?

Very definitely 'Urbane', that is, relative to its predecessor.

Apparently these were deliberately toned down so as not to attract too much undesirable attention.

However, they were still 'nicked' in equal numbers.

Get-away drivers, or 'motor men' in common parlance, it seems also appreciated the low-profile high performance package. :)
