I have this large poster made by Graham Ling Nr.106/400 bought many many years ago.
It's for sale but I have no idea about the selling price.

As I understand it, our very own Andy Pen does or did this for a living. He probably did some of those drawings

Little bit before my time Peter, but these things certainly inspired me. I did supervise a cutaway of an entire car in the 90s, which I think was done in stages to show changes over the years. I'm fairly certain I still have the original pencil drawing here somewhere, as the final piece was airbrushed and this lay forgotten for years. Will have to have a deep dig in my studio, though it is now full of mini bits!! ;-)

As an almost little aside - but relevant. When I was restoring one of my cars, I wasn't sure about which colour to paint it. So got enlarged copies of the Mk2 black and white line drawings of mini's from the Mk2 parts lists. Painted the car pictures in the various colours and stuck them on a wall to see which one I - and the rest of the flock - liked best. Tartan/black was the best followed by Glacier/black. Did one tartan and the one I kept, glacier.....

Are there any drawings of the engines with dimensions available?
