The cutaway drawing and its artists

This is the one I believe to be Kimble. It would have been for a model kit. It's painted in reverse on acetate. You can feel the x-acto scoring.

The rest are by Tom West. This would be an EARLY one of his.

Tom told me there was a portion of this where he had no photo reference and was stuck for several weeks. Then the missing portion came to him in a dream and he finished it off.

Tom sold this one and one other to me (Don Prudhomme). They were hanging in the NHRA drag racing museum at the time. He asked them to take them down and said I would be there the following day to pick them up. Weird.

How big are these? from the background it is suggested that they are seriously big
Posted 14 March 2019 - 23:42
I used the same background on all of them (for another project). Paper size is in the 18" x 24" range. The drag ones really vary, with the largest being 31" x 39".

I'd say about 75cm wide Henk, for clear reproduction purposes.
I have some original 'copies' that size
Ha, ya beat me Cody

8. Martini Special. This was the first racing car built by expat Italian Tico Martini in Jersey and campaigned by him on Channel Island and UK hills in 1961/62. Tico then moved to France and continued the famous series of Martini racing cars. Here’s a rather fuzzy shot of the Martini in its original form:
and in its later form as it still appears from time to time in Guernsey:
9. Ford Consul Classic (as it was known in the UK; it was called the Consul 315 when exported).

Cutaway Rockwell XFV-12A, the unsuccessful supersonic fighter S / VTOL for the US Navy that had issued a requirement for a fighter with higher performance than the BAC Harrier or McDonnell Douglas AV-8A, used another principle by derivation of the engine flow to the planes , the purge of the air sucked more flow from the outside, increasing the thrust to obtain the vertical thrust and make transitions from vertical to horizontal flight, after numerous tests it was considered more complicated and the concept was rejected. Author WEAL and modified by Motocar to recreate this forgotten fighter

Just for fun made color-matched version of RA301 (with red stripes) for my collection As you can see I used modern Honda logo - if you have period-correct version of it, I can replace it... also wanted to try RA302 - but this probably will be much more difficult

The most RA302 material was posted so long ago it deserves a refresh
Akira Fujimoto's cutaway
Ken's............I have him down as Kenjiro Ouchi, but I am not sure of that

Can someone explain how this all functions, please?
Is this the same method on the 2CV?

It's interesting to see some forgotten-and-reinvented approaches.
