Mumfordbooks Vehicle Cutaway Illustrated: A selection of matched and paired Eagle Centres showing vehicle history from the pioneers to the late sixties. Examples of vehicles range from private, commercial to military. This wide range of vehicles include experimental to mass produced. Each download is great value, yours for FREE. Each download can be printed to A4 size, not big enough to read all the original text and technical fine detail.The first issue of Eagle Comic’s was released in April 1950. Revolutionary in its presentation and content, it was enormously successful, the first issue sold about 900,000 copies. Featured in colour on the front cover was its most recognisable story, Dan Dare, Pilot of the Future, created by Hampson with meticulous attention to detail. Other popular stories included Riders of the Range and P.C. 49, news and sport sections, and educational cutaway diagrams of sophisticated machinery.Children’s comics usually contained a mixture of adventure stories, presented as text rather than strip cartoons. Some British boys were buying American horror comics produced for G.I.s. Morris was impressed by the high standard of artwork in the US magazines, but disgusted by their content, which he described as “deplorable, nastily over-violent and obscene contents. These educational cutaway diagrams of machinery were the best professional knowledge-based information ever produced. Each full colour drawing showed how the latest complicated industrial processes worked, in the Air, on Land or Sea. Each section would show types of aircraft and all their working parts. On land from Sport-cars to Land-rovers, Lorries to Trains. On the sea from Lifeboats to Oil-tankers. More complicated technologies like Runways and Airports, Motorways, National Grid, Coal Mines, Power Lines, Generation of Electricity, Telephone Exchanges and much more. A gold mine of information and understanding specially paired to give the maximum visual impact. It may be nearly 70 years ago that the first centrespreads were published. Fashions have dated, like a classic car like the Morgan, still British made, still a family business, lives on. A good design that functions well, adding new materials, electronics and a computer controller, you can be bang up-to-date, and still be of service, to enjoy.
