Any progress jet? Would you mind sharing the drawings you did up to now?

Does anyone have a copy of the cutaway done of an Elan by the Eagle comic?

I'd appreciate seeing it in full.

Hi Tim,
I don't have the original comic, but will this do ?

Edit to add - if it is what you're after and want a bigger scan then it's no problem but at 300dpi it's probably too large for the forum.

Tim,

what a fantastic selection of beautifully drawn cutaways, I remember seeing the cover of Classic Car magazine in December 1985 and I was smitten... there was a cutaway view inside and I thought that the drawing was amazing!

..and now you're trying to explode the car itself!

The Eagle drawing has the same pre-'A' rear suspension frame as the early Lotus adverts of the chassis and, I believe, The Science Museum car. So was it actually a Lotus drawing prepared for The Eagle assuming that the dads were reading the comic too?
