Hi Tony, I'm glad to see you here again.
I and the cutawayland are all missing your always good comments here in the forum.
In one of his books (if my memory helps), David Kimble writes he draw his cutaways by hand, then someone in his team do the lines on computer, printing it on film and returned to him to do the colours with the airbrush.
Makoto Ouchi do  his cutaways by hand (the pencils), scanning them and doing the lines and colours on Illustrator/Photoshop to a very good result. See the Wolf WR1 on page 'NEW316'.
3D models cutaway renderings have not the same charisma to me. My preference are the hand draw cutaways (pencil, ink, paint brush and airbrush) that I grew up learning to love. I collected them for all my life, buying every magazine or book with cutaways that I could.

...They both (Kimble and Ouchi) are beautiful examples of those "hybrid carburetors", I think - because they made their name long time ago, can perfectly draw by hand and if you remove all that digital part from their process... nothing will change, probably. Even latest Kimble's engine from the previous page looks 100-percent analog - noone expect anything else from Kimble, and it is totally consistent with his earlier works...

But if some new young talent will want to become new "Kimble" - eventually he will realise that there is no this opportunity anymore - for example Haynes' book about RedBull RB6 - CAD renderings are extremely informative (that was cutaway's purpose initially)... And yes, I totally agree about different charisma of 3D

Hi everyone, faithful patrons of Cutawayland, one of the several reasons why I don't come here often is that i find the posting of images is a pain compared with Facebook and Instagram. If anyone is interested I have been posting a few cutaways or bits of cutaways on Instagram under the name smudger364.

I find it interesting to see in Motor Sport that Palawan are running a series of cutaway prints, starting with the DB3S, by the remarkable talent that is Tony Matthews.
It is about time that traditional cutaways earned some recognition these days, rather than computer designed stuff.
We had an A3 size giveaway from GRRC of a TM penned 250F a few years ago which I appreciated. Proper job.

Cutaway Boeing XB/YB-52, the prototypes of the old, fat and ugly or better known as "Buff" nobody even their designers thought they would be flying in the 21st century, being part of the dissuasive triad of the USAF, that bomber that belonged to the famous "Strategic Command" whose logo adorned the nose of the bombers that were part of it in their different units, the B-52 had to replace the huge (and obsolete) Republic B-36 as well as increase the stride that the Boeing B-47 lacked, would be accompanied only for a decade of the fabulous, supersonic and very expensive Convair B-58. Already in the sixties he had planned his powerful substitute task entrusted to North American and his fantastic XB-70 with speed of Mach 3 flying at high altitude, would soon be relegated and then canceled when changing the balance of power due to Soviet capabilities in ground-to-air or SAM missiles that had already shown their ability to take down intruder planes flying at great heights, one and their victims was the previously untouchable Lockheed U-2, being shot down by Gary Powers who was captured and creating a serious international incident , Author Aviagraphica and retouched by Motocar to recreate this early version of the BUFF

Guys, does anybody here know how to get in contact with Bruno Betti? I know somebody who would like to use his 917/30 drawing in a publication.

Hello ye defenders of the analogue cutaway!

 

It's been a while since I last checked in - lots of interesting subjects lately!

 

I find it quite interesting that the Japanese were so much into cutaways in the 1970s, even illustrating such relatively modest subjects such as the Osella FA 2. I do like the styles of both Kikuchi and Jufuku. Kikochi's Chevron B23 linework almost approaches a Matthews in its fine stippling etc., and Jufuku's MG Midget appears to me to be a brush/airbrush work (though I may have been conned by computers) with a crispness also almost approaching a Matthews (for those who may not have noticed, Tony Matthews is for me the cutaway yardstick by which all others are judged...)

Reminded by Bonde's profile picture I just checked The Index and it seems we didn't had the pre-war Opel Kadett before.

Here we go:

Thanks for the very first-generation of the Opel Kadett, Duc-Man.

 

It's the 11234 model introduced in November 1936 for the !937 model year. Opel being a Genral Motors company, in those days significant face-lifts happened virtually annually - the Kadett got a significant face lift one year later, with the K38 model for 1938. Not much changed for 1939 and 1940, but in my opinion the 1938 face-lift made the car so much prettier (pretty enough for me to buy my Kadett virtually for its looks alone :-)) - a nasal treatment along Olympia OL38 and Kapitän lines, whereas the 'old' 1937 model front was Admiral-inspired - a bit heavy, IMO.

I totally agree with you. I've seen a couple Kadett and also Admirals of the time. The Kadett K38 is right as it is, so is the Admiral (a art deco design masterpiece IMO). Imagining the Kadett K38 front on the Admiral...that wouldn't look right either.

Congratulation for your Kadett. I'm so jealous...

Thanks, Duc-Man - but no need for jealousy :wave: . It really is a very humble vehicle. Rather gutless engine (though it went really well this evening thanks to really cold weather :up: ) and no synchromesh. But one learns to adjust. I just think it's such a pretty little thing...I never get tired of looking at its shapely curves, however humble the Kadett is.

Hi Ed, thanks for your offer.
we have had the Novi at page 45 (old) but it don't show anymore.
The Fiat 850 is at page NEW296.
I never saw the semi-cutaways.
