In the short time after the Wright Brothers first flew their Flyer in 1903, some had toyed with the idea of marrying the airplane with the automobile to produce the convenience of long distance flight with the ability to drive from the airfield to their desired destination. The first person to put this idea into an actual concept at least in the United States, was Glenn Curtiss of the Curtiss 'Jenny' fame. This is the Curtiss Autoplane of 1917. Being that it was under-powered there is not any information that it ever truly flew, other than some statements that it may have lifted off the ground in short "hops". After U.S. entrance into World War I, further development was abandoned so that Curtiss could concentrate on JN-4 'Jenny" production. It was shown at the Pan-American Aeronautic Exposition at New York City in February 1917 to public delight then it disappeared. It was constructed using the wings fron the Model L trainer, fitted to a hand built body. There are several large resolution pictures, both during construction, and at the Exposition, so that I was able to correct most of the mistakes from the original line drawings. This is the result. This is the front profile. I believe that the body was painted a light color, although it may have been left natural Aluminum. Since I think that it was painted, I went with a light green I found on a 1917 Reo car. The other choices I had were Yellow, mundane Grey, or White. I considered yellow, but went with the green instead. The patent states that an optional left hand door was available but I believe that the prototype only had the right side door so I provided both right and left side view. Since the propeller in the front view only covers part of the tail fin bracing struts and the top landed and flying versions are virtually the same I have only done one of each.

Line art by Curtiss Aeroplane and Motor Company patent application 1917 - perhaps drawn by Glenn Curtiss himself

I am currently working on the Rockwell B-1B now so I don't know if that would be something you want posted here or not. IF not it will still be on my deviantart page.

Please post the B-1B

OK will do. It will take awhile with something as complex, detailed and large as it is. The B-52H side took me about a month to complete because the line drawing was S**T and all of the details I had to put in from looking at pictures. The B-1B line drawing is decent, but still I'm finding things I have to change. I just spent the last hour trying to make the wing slats "look" right. I could have left them in the wing on the landed version, but nooooooo......can't do that :)

These are the side profiles of my B-1B that I completed this week. There are four views - landed, flying wings forward, flying wings swept back and the last being refueled by my KC-135R.They are half the size of the originals because of the size. They are the same scale as my B-52H on deviantart at https://www.deviantart.com/great-jimbo/gallery. If you haven't visited it yet please do. There are some of my earlier work that I haven't posted here.

Line art by H. ОКОЛЕЛОВ (H. OKOLOV)

Thanks.

I did this one for Greg. I may do others if I get time. This was easy since I didn't have to change colors. To do different colors would necessitate that I change all of the detail and contrast shading as it is color specific which will be time consuming. 

Without further ado may I present the Royal Australian Air Force's newest bomber - the Rockwell (now Boeing) B-1B

Ooo, very nice  :smiley:

I especially like the RAAF version. Nice way to muscle up the Quadrilateral Security Dialogue  ;)  Go Quad  8)

B-1Bs were apparently offered to the RAAF (and RAF) but were rejected.  They have operated from Amberley though...

Thanks Guys!!  :D

I am working on the top side now. The H. ОКОЛЕЛОВ (H. OKOLOV) top was unusably skewed when it was scanned, so I had to find another to use. Luckily I found one that will work.

Here are the top views as promised. Line art by Unknown with details from the H. ОКОЛЕЛОВ (H. OKOLOV) top view which was unusable. These are half the size of the originals

I will be on holiday for the next two weeks so probably won't have time to work on the fronts until after.
