Sort of enjoying this at the moment, so here are a set of five British WW2 Twin-engined fighter/bombers. Different artists, and different versions of these classic aircraft.
The first piece is from Air Enthusiast, January, 1`974.  Not sure why, but I have always liked this aircraft, the Bristol Beaufighter I from 1939.

This is the second piece for today, another Bristol Beaufighter TFX from 1942. This Mike Badrocke illustration was from the May, 2003 issue of FlyPast.

Maybe the top of the British light twin-engined fighters, and a very unique concept overall, the deHavilland DH-98 Mosquito B Mk. IV shown here was illustrated by Alfonso Rigato, out of Delta in Italy.  Would love to get my hands on a set of Aero magazine from the 60s and 70s to pull all of the artwork done in those magaazines.

This is another version of the deHavilland Mosquito, the B Mk. IV. This was a John Weal piece out of Pilot Press, as reprinted in the 1977 RAF Yearbook.

The last illustration in this short series is the third subject. This is the contemporary Aeroplane Magazine piece from James Clark on the deHavilland Hornet F Mk. I from 1944, as reprinted in Aeroplane, June, 2005.

Latecoere 631cutaway, the huge and beautiful hexa engine hydro-airplane French line, the design began just before World War II and the first aircraft was completed in 1942 only to be immediately confiscated by force of Nazi occupation, was unfortunately destroyed day after his arrival in Germany, the rest of the few units built flew one in 1943 and the rest in the post war, where they flew with Air Frace in its passenger service, unfortunately the era of the great flying boats was coming to an end and to top three units 631 crashed, the only survivor was scrapped in the mid-fifties., this drawing without being properly a cutaway is the only picture I have located for long web searches, author not identified and taken site:

Our friend Motorcar has requested the scans from HAL, Hindustan Aeronautics, and I happen to have a couple that have already been scanned ... so we will start with this piece from Air International, June, 1977. This is the Aviagraphica-signed piece from Mike Badrocke of the HAL Ajeet fighter.  Check out the direct link that I included with the larger version of the scan than what is shown here on the Board.

Thank you very much Mr. Tom West for kindly taking the time to upload the schematics I was looking for cuts for several years in my country and circulation of these publications not only in the archives of the Simon Bolivar University can be read, but only from 1989 Marut HAL which Kurt Tank design was initially proposed in Argentina, unsuccessful work of German engineer, there is an artist friend "aleklicho" to dramatically renders propose modified to recreate the tandem version of them to further enhance cutting the fabled land we love. 
Thanks again for sharing these rare images

I have a couple of pieces to post, as sent to me by Christian Vambennette.  I am posting the initial two pieces to my Imageshack, with Direct, and Forum links here.  It includes his original scan size, so a bit larger than my normal full-sized posting.  I am gathering that he has some more to come, all pieces out of Motoring News, so there could be quite a number of these pieces to add to the collection of the group.

I did not get the details on the edition, but this was a Motoring News piece on the Cooper-Monaco from 1963, from Bill Bennett.

Stefan,
I love your work with LSR cars, although I must say that I enjoy your art quite a lot.  The computer version of the Bloodhound appears to be nicely done, but I would love to see a larger file on that image.  Didn't realize the talent you have, sir.

This makes a point for me, as I am sure there are others who "don't have anything to contribute," to paraphrase your own comment, yet they are very accomplished on related areas of artwork.  While I realize this is supposed to be a cutatway-centric  site, how about samples of other non-cutaway artwork, just to introduce some highly skilled artists who don't happen to have that strange "look-inside" genetics going for them. Would love to know the skills represented by the folks in this group.

Thanks for your consideration.
Tom West

Very nice, Stefan. The proportions look too wide to be a magazine spread, so how do Castrol intend to use it? Any chance of a set of posters for children (of all ages)?

Thanks for the nice comments about the Bloodhound image. Castrol gave out posters of these when they announced their sponsorship. I've used the image for one side of an A2 Bloodhound poster too - it'll be out shortly - I'm sure they'll have them wherever the show car goes. Once it's out I'll see if I can post a slightly higher res one.

HAL Hindustan TMk.1 HF-24 "Marut" cutaway, in the version that had offered training to recreate this tweak conversion apparatus used by the Indian Air Force, unfortunately this fighter despite being designed to benefit maximum speed of Mach 2 , could hardly exceed the speed of sound, this was not attributable to the design but the lack of an engine with sufficient thrust to allow him to reach the originally estimated speed of the project, the reasons for this lack of a suitable engine was partly sanctions imposed on India for having tested its first nuclear device, The TMk.1 had booths in tandem and the guns were removed to locate there seat ejection of instructor had excellent visibility, in some models leave one or two guns specifically those located in the lower part of the fuselage, and retouched by author Aviagraphica Motocar to recreate this Indian Marut seater version, uploaded to Flickr.

Hindustan HAL Ajeet TMk.1 Cutaway , the prototype built hunting from successful training (with Indian aviation) Gnat / Ajeet Indian Air Force game, created to answer the need for an aircraft conversion, it was decided to use a cell Ajeet and converted by the elongated fuselage in the front section to accommodate a second seat ejection (Now, a Martin Baker seat instead of the original Folland) and rear fuselage to balance the center of gravity so as to replenish the fuel retired to make room for the second seat, the transparent cover had frames and opened independently each upwards, leaving the slightly raised instructor regarding the position of the pupil, the size remained and stabilizers became integral as was done Ajeet in the landing gear remained just that the nose wheel was ahead a little after lengthening the fuselage and keep the original position, original author Aviagraphica retouched by Ajeet Motocar to recreate the TMk.1
 
Note taken from Wikipedia:
"HAL project for a coach based Ajeet He began, leading to the initial construction of a prototype in 1982. Unfortunately this aircraft was lost in an accident that year. A second prototype flew the following year, followed by a third party. But the lack of interest of the government and the impending phaseout of Ajeet of combat units mean that more copies were not produced.'s two surviving aircraft were sent to the only unit in the operation of the IAF Ajeet, No. 2 Squadron. The aircraft served with the Squadron until Ajeet phasing out in 1991. "

I have some things building up on my desktop so I thought I better move some of it along. Going to be the start of a grab-bag of material, some my origination, and others, like this one, starting elsewhere.
This is a piece scanned by Roger Lund.  He asked me to take a shot at it, and also sent it to the now banned Macoran. This is Marc's version, which was way ahead of mine and made mine completely redundant, as the Brits might say. There was recent interst in Rovers, so this is an old John Ferguson piece on the Rover P5B 3500, originally out of Motoring News. These things were run across the gutter, and removing them from the magazine always leaves a large open area that has to be filled. This is a great job of realignment and reillustrating that missing chunk in the middle.

This is a piece that was sent to me by Christain Vambenette, although I used my own larger scan from the original April, 1961 Car & Driver to put this together. This is the Chevrolet test/concept car, the CERV 1 or 1961. The illustration by Clarence LaTourette shows this pseudo-Indy car thought coming out of General Motors Tech Center at the time.

Another piece that originated with Christian Vambinette, which was also replaced with my own larger scan out of Car and Driver, September, 1961. This car was shown as the Troutman-Barnes Special in 1961, but was to be better known as the first Chaparral of Jim Hall, one of the true legends of US Motorsports. Illustrator: Clarence LaTourette.

Thank you for posting the Rover P6B cutaway, Tom: a car I owned and loved, and drawn by one of the most accurate and - to my eye - 'artistic' old-school cutaway artists.

 

I would imagine everyone here knows the story behind the odd 'knee-action' front suspension (designed both to clear the projected gas turbine engine and feed suspension loads into the structural base unit) but the cutting away the pad between the rear seats as John Ferguson did leaves one other distinctive feature concealed: the Jaguars of the same period had foam cushions; the Rovers had proper, metal-sprung seats with fibre and cloth padding - a proper, old-fashioned job.

 

P6s gave a superb, supple ride and handled very nicely - but they did lean out when cornered enthusiastically (something Jaguar really did sort with the XJ).

One of the many innovative pieces of racing equipment that came out of the Mickey Thompson shops in Long Beach, California, this is one of his Indy car projects, the Harvey Aluminum Special of 1963.  Published in Road and Track, June, 1963, the piece is by Steve Swaja.  Swaj went on to become the hottest name in drag racing and hot rod styling in the late '60s, and started a Car Craft Cutaway of the month series that inspired me to try to do my own cutaways. Still in touch with Steve daily, although most of it now is conservative political stuff, alas.

Not one of the better known cutaway artists, he tried different styles, but I think I liked the clean approach that he used on this Lotus XIX best.  out of Sports Car Graphic, May, 1961 issue.

I told you that this was a bit of a grab-bag of material, and this was the one I was picturing when I said that. This is the Zundapp Janus Microcar out of Road and Track, December, 1956. The artist signs as Thesius; I think someone mentioned a full name for him, but can't think what it was ... still have him listed as just Thesius in my files.

This piece was illustrated by Takashi Jufuku, very much in the style of inkwork done by Yoshihiro Inomoto.

There used to be one of those running in the village where I live. It was a funny little thing.
 I wonder what happened to it when the owner died.

Tom is correct that this was penned by Takashi Jufuku. The original document, complete with Maki Engineering Racing Team's seal, states that it was illustrated by Takashi. It also identifies the car as the F-101, not the F-102a. The wide nose in the illustration didn't last past the first iteration of the vehicle, being changed for a Tyrrell 007-like front spoiler for the F-101b and later. Firestone was replaced by Goodyear as tire supplier beginning with the F101c, and both front design and rear spoiler were altered for the F102. I'm not including a copy of the original because this version has slightly better contrast and is easier to view, but if anyone wants a copy they can contact me.

I want to clear a couple of things from my Desktop here, so this is the way I can do it. A couple of more grab-bag pieces.

This first one was unsigned in publication, but the style and the timing seems to indicate Robert Thatcher as the artist of this Lola 70, publiched in Sports Car Graphic, August, 1965.

Auto insurance proposal Popular Mechanics magazine in April 1976 in its Spanish edition, in the article "Safety and Style for the 80's, in the same was speculation about how the cars would eighties, illustrator Bradley made some I conlo designs by that time it was thought would be the cars of the future, in the same central engine derived from the platform of the Fiat X1 / 9, large areas of glass with glass flush with thin rollover steel bars are proposed to resistant, very thin bucket seats behind the backrest and headrest, with seating for four adults, would have wide rear vision mirrors full width with disc brakes on all four wheels, aerodynamic design to very low fuel consumption, its Bumper debian deformed in crashes at low speeds and debian regain his form, turn in a frontal or side to ensure the survival of its occupants accidents, another feature that incorporated was a barrier to retention in the event of winding a pedestrian, avoiding injury later caused the projected out. It is interesting to look back and notice that many of the proposed solutions have already been incorporated in the vehicles today, especially top collapsible trunk, security bars on doors and ability to absorb impactosfrontales at 55 Km / h with damage minimus passengers (provided they comply with the regulations and crash test) this court will make schematic using as donor the cutaway of the Fiat X1 / 9 and using the artwork of Bradley as a guide, there is a lot of speculation and I consider it a work in progress , quize do to see how serious. modified by Motocar.

A little off topic, but a great cutaway artist of the very old school is a guy called Russell W Porter.

 

His subjects were almost always telescopes, he was an amateur astronomer and a talented draughtsman\engineer\mechanical designer. He was part of the team who designed the huge 200 inch telescope at Palomar in the USA.

 

If you are interested in his work a search on his name, or the word " Stellafane" will turn up some of his drawings.
I won't link to any because I'm not sure of the copyright.
