Some interesting view-points there, joca, and a novel use of felt-tip pens. I wish Williams used such a colourful paint scheme still, instead of endless dark blue and white!

I saw the rest of your work (side views) on your Image shack gallery :up:
Pity your scanner seems to dull the colours of your colourful work, give the scanner a click
here or there on the contrast and brightness, and you'll have even beastier results.

I must admit these are exciting times :up: You never know what type of wonder will appear next. I never realised a Brian Hatton could be so colourful! There is something distinctly Sci-Fi about these article illustrations.

Mind you, I interpret Mr Matthews's magnificent March 85G Buick in the same way, almost 'Barbarella' like.

Regarding Tom Killeen being the potential illustrator of the Fraser GT Group 6 competition car, I'm aware that Tom Killeen was the design/engineer for the car but would he also illustrate his own car in a non-engineering context? It would certainly be a fascinating and unique example if so. :up:

Nr. 12 from the series Prophet without honour by Cyril Posthumus.
Published by Motor magazine, drawing Brian Hatton.
Louis Chevrolet designed and raced to 20th (dnf) in the 1915 Indy 500.
The Cornelian
Posted Image

some text from here and there

The cycle car was powered by a Sterling engine and boasted a light weight of 500 kg displacing 103 cubic inches. The car, which featured a uni-body, independent rear suspension and a "suicide front axle," qualified Louis Chevrolet for the 1915 Indy 500 with a qualifying speed of 81.010 mph. Unfortunately for Chevrolet and Blood, the car never finished the race. On the 77th lap, it broke a valve, forcing Chevrolet out of the action, ending up with an unimpressive 20th place ranking.
from allexperts.com

Suicide front axle was a term used to define a suspension configuration used on early Ford cars
The configuration consists of a one-piece axle, to the ends of which the steerable front wheels are mounted. The axle receives its vertical support from a transverse leaf spring, and its horizontal support from fore-aft links (usually called "wishbones") which are attached (via pivots) to the ends of the axle at their forward end and to the sides of the chassis (again via pivots) at their aft end. The ends of the transverse leaf spring can either tie to the top of the wishbones, or to the top of the solid axle. The transverse leaf spring is supported at its center by a pivot or link on the center of the chassis's front crossmember.

Would it be an idea for a moderator to move Ibsen's index to the start of the thread ?
It would make it more readily accessible for all thread visitors as well as for Ibsen when he is entering his updates.

It should also be given an appropriate title like ICITCD .............Ibsen's Concise Index of TNF Cutaway Drawings

Suicide front axle was a term used to define a suspension configuration used on early Ford cars
The configuration consists of a one-piece axle, to the ends of which the steerable front wheels are mounted. The axle receives its vertical support from a transverse leaf spring, and its horizontal support from fore-aft links (usually called "wishbones") which are attached (via pivots) to the ends of the axle at their forward end and to the sides of the chassis (again via pivots) at their aft end. The ends of the transverse leaf spring can either tie to the top of the wishbones, or to the top of the solid axle. The transverse leaf spring is supported at its center by a pivot or link on the center of the chassis's front crossmember.

Also, apparently contains "Lilliputian engine parts"



The actual car was at Goodwood in 2005:

In this case I think confirmation can only be provided through actual observation and identification of genuine 'Lilliputian engine parts'. But that is just my opinion. (Lilliputian toolmakers are notoriously coy).
