Here's a cutaway of Northrop F-89D by John Weal. Unfortunately the keys are in Russian. It would be nice if someone would come up with the English version.

Well ... I am embarrassed to realize that I missed the switch to page 258.  I was trying to figure out why nobody had posted in so long, only to find out there are some pretty unique things on here. Thanks for doing that, as I get a big present of this material all at one time.
I was figuring that I could add a few things of hopeful interest that I had sitting in my file. I had to clean them up a bit, as always ... some more successfully than others.

I am going to start with a William Moore piece of one of the American Sports Specials out of the mid-1960s. This is Jack Nethercutt's Mirage Special, as published in the February, 1966 issue of Sports Car Graphic. I really wish that they did not think the color overlays were helpful, as the registration and color matching between signatures on the press run was never very good back then, so it is difficult to make it work so well ... at least with the skills that I can bring to bear on the matter. Still rather cool, and not the most common of subjects.

The second piece for today is not strictly a cutaway, but more of a concept based on the description of a new Fuel Dragster concept from 1988.  This is a piece by tech artist Michael Schwartz, and based upon a conversation with Dale Armstrong, possibly one of the more innovative designers and tuners in the history of drag racing.  I would guess that it was based on artwork from a Revell-Monogram Funny Car modelkit, combined with the description of what Dale was thinking would be a much quicker and faster design for a fuel dragster. Considering that the front engine design is not allowed at the top levels anymore, this was a bit of a step out of line for this concept. A lot of the features have been worked into the front-engined nostalgia dragsters, so the thoughts have been proven to work pretty well.

This is a piece by Bob Temple of a typical Sports Car Club of America Corvette Road Racer of the early 1960s, the McDonald Corvette Special. These were typical of a very popular class of car from back in the day, and was featured in Sports Car Graphic's March, 1962 issue.

This is a strange little piece from Bob Thatcher out of Sports Car Graphic from June, 1960. This is a little Devin D-bodied roadster with a Volkswagen engine in the back. I believe this was a kit car, typical of such things around this time, so it was a good subject to work into SCG at the time.

I am calling this a Bob Thatcher illustration, but I remember somewhere in the back of my mind a conversation about that "Darling" id that is built into the piece, so if anyone has a better thought, please let me know.  This piece came from the August, 1962 edition of Sports Car Graphic, and features the early Shelby AC Cobra with the little 260 Ford engine. This car was very nicely balanced and seemed to work very nicely as a well-handling road and track car, actually much better than the later 427 Cobra which was just not as well balanced and way overpowered for the tires and suspension of the day.  Nice little fill-in for the story here, however.

Last one for today.

How do you find images in this thread.  It’s so big and unwieldy that even the first page with the index take minuets to load and scrolls slowly and jerkily.  I find what I’m looking for on that page:

 

85B F3000 by artist unknown (Jean-Jacques François?) - page 280

89D F3000 1989 by Jean-Jacques François - page 163-262 (B&W)

 

Only to find the thread finished at page 258 so there is no 280 or 262  and that page 163 does not have the 89D

Unfortunately, last month's forum software upgrade altered the default number of posts per page from 40 to 50, thus ruining the index. At the moment the only solution is to multiply the page number shown in the index by 0.8 to get the approximate current page where the cutaway you're looking for can be found. You might well need to check one page either side to be sure of locating the drawing.

GRID Plaza Group C Sport Car cutaway, This car was one of losmás advanced among the designs presented in 1982 to participate in the newly created category Group C sports car, with its particular rules that allowed the use of the "Venturi" effect under the car, but was to have a completely flat surface of over 1 square meter, many of the advances seen in this car were seen many years later incorporated in cars, including the front wing, nose separate fenders as well as its lowest rear deck area the engine and rear fenders very aerodynamic which covered the rear wheels, this part in the 24 Hours of Lemans 1982, which among others was led by Emilio de Villota pilot and where he retired in a cloud of smoke from its engine failure, defective yapresuradamente prepared, suffered from lack of resources and adequate sponsorship to allow him better in the races in which I participate. author Virtua_LM Junior Team member HarryCS render darwing site:

Roger, that Stilltime site has been mentioned here previously, and they have some interesting illustrations in the collection. The farm equipment is especially unique, at least in my own collection.  Of course, they are relatively small and low res, since they are trying to sell the images.  I would hope that the larger scans are more cleaned up, as these look like they were scanned directly from artwork. They clean up to varying levels from what I have been able to do, but some of the subjects are certainly of interest. Thanks for bringing them to our attention again.

Tom, I know we have had the main Stilltime site discussed before on another thread, and I thought we had had the Stilltime cutaway site before as I have previously queried this cutaway as being of the RGS Atalanta Sports car, perhaps based on a pre WW2 design. The horizontal springs, in tension or compression?, caught my eye, as you can imagine if you recall my interest in the Vapordine which you were kind enough to end me in hi-res, and its springs.
Picture_073_RGS_Atalanta_sports_1954.jpg
I am now sure it is of that car, as here is my shot of the rear end of the 1954 RGS Atalanta Aston Martin Sports at last month’s Revival meeting

Roger, et al,

I am sending an update on the Scarab illustration that you found online. This originally appeared in the June, 1958 issue of Sports Car Illustrated, just for reference.  I have to editorialized a bit here to say that this was really a great looking car, and very well built. With the Revlon money behind him, and an amazing team creating this car, is was really quite an amazing piece at the time.  I know that one of them has been showing up at car shows out here in fully restored condition ... wish I could get it out in the open to shoot a complete "feature" on the thing.  The illustration is by Clarence LaTourette.

That Porsche Panzer is an interesting piece, and I have only one other piece from the artist, and don't know where that originated.  His name is Sebastian Sauvadet, and this style is aparently his specialty. The only other thing that I have in my file on him is the Ferrari 312-T4 which was done in 1979. Considering that he is dealing with some rather high-visibility cars here, he must have done something between these two, as well as before and after.
Would love to have these in higher res version ... as with all of this type of thing.
Thanks for posting it, always good to have more from an artist who does these things a little differently than the rest.
I find it interesting to look at this and see some of the things done with the design.  I did the modelkit pattern drawings for the Accurate Miniatures McLaren Mk. 8D, which might lay claim to being the most detailed 1/24-25 scale car ever produced, so I lived with this kind of thing on that car for a while.  Interesting comparison between the dominant car in that series, until this one came along.

While I have your attention, I thought I would put up a couple of other pieces that I recently salvaged from the horrid printing of the time. Think these might have been up here before, but in a smaller file, so hopefully these will improve the collection ... and I was going to do the bigger scans anyway  ...

The first is the Clarence LaTourette illustration of the rather Batmobiley Lotus Mk. IX. This appeared in a centerspread feature in the August, 1956 edition of Sports Car Illustrated.

Sorry if Batmobiley isn't a real word, but you know what I mean ...

This is another that I got somewhere online in a smaller version, but still wanted to scan since I had picked up the original magazine. This is another Clarence LaTourette piece on the little OSCA 1100 Sports Racer. This was from the February, 1959 issue of Sports Car Illustrated. Too bad they won't reuse that magazine name again now, as it would almost force the publisher to use new cutaways.  Not exactly a big market if you take out the GM stuff that is being done here and in Europe. Very happy that Kimble and Parsons are staying busy with it, but would love to see Tony Matthews work starting again after all this time.

Next up is a scan of one of Tony Matthews pieces as it appeared in Circle Track, January of 1983.  I hate seeing his beautiful work scanned up from a printed piece, as all the detail can get lost in the seperation process.  I try to take out all the magaazine artwork and layout magic in the back and just show the piece itself, as in the rest of my scans that you have seen.
This is the Gould-sponsored Penske PC-10 Indy car from 1983.
I have a bit of a Gould story ... when Aurora was shut down, my soon-to-be wife (and future ex-wife) and I were laid off (made redundant).  I was looking for jobs in the industry, and she was just looking to find something tied to her Purchasing experience. She got an interview at a Gould Electronics division about 20 miles east of us on Long Island, and it was supposed to be at 10 the following morning.  Overnight, we ended up with probably a 2-foot snowstorm that pretty much closed much of Long Island, although they plow the major highways very quickly. She wanted to call and reschedule, but I told her to hold the appointment and I would get her there.  I picked her up, which took probably 4 times as long as normal, maybe more, and we headed out the one plowed lane on the Southern Parkway, only to find that the exit we needed was completely buried in snow, uncleared.  I had to go past it a couple of exits, and we called the guy to tell him she would be there maybe 20 minutes late. We finally got there, to see his car in the lot, and no others. There were supposed to be 25 interviewees, and it turned out that all of them bailed, so she got the job just because of her determination in getting there.  It seemed that I should have had the job ... maybe that is just becaue we are now ex-s.

Sorry for the little sidetrip down memory lane.

This is another one of Tony Matthews' wonderful Indy Car illustrations, as printed in Circle Track, January, 1984.  Another of those disappointing scans from a separated and printed image of one of Tony's great and highly detailed illustrations, but this is the way we get them out here ... and I still love these things.  I have a couple of more of these that I will poist shortly. 

The piece is another of the very successful Penske cars out of that era, this being the Pennzoil sponsored Penske PC11 of 1984.

That's all, folks ... for today. With apologies to Warner Brothers for stealing their line.

Thanks Tom and Ibsen. :up:

Google spit out his website: http://sebastien-sauvadet.com with lots of pictures.

Looks like an motorsport artist that does everything from 'serious' art to cartoons.

The man did also a Ford GT40 and an Alpine (?) lemans car.

That Porsche Panzer is an interesting piece, and I have only one other piece from the artist, and don't know where that originated.

If anyone needs to see the reason this site has been around and active for so long, this latest little thread explains it. When you can ask a question and get this kind of response from such a knowledgeable group, along with futher samples of an artists work, that is really pretty cool, don't you think.
Thanks to all, as usual, for the expansion to our information.

This is a relatively small, but cleaned up, version of that original '63 Split-window Corvette illustration by Clarence LaTourette.  I had posted it here long ago ... took a while to find it again. These are rather fun to see, looking back at those 50s and 60s pieces that were probably what caught us up in the Cutaway-fever in the first place.
Besides, this Corvette came out about the same time as the E-type.  It was a toss-up in some ways between the snarky and batmobile looks of the Corvette and the smooth sophistication of the XK-E.  I really loved them both, but would probably take the XK-E now if given the chance at it ... not that I expect that to be an option ...
