Anyone remember those books with partial cut away diagrams of aircrafts or ships which had numbers next to systems that let you look up that piece of equipment on a table on the side?

This DA artist has been doing those kind of diagrams with famous sci fi space craft

there are a slew of Star Trek runabout and Defiant schematics like this I recomend checking his gallery.
Here's a personal old school favorite:

If you have modelled some of the ships in your game on famous small craft from TV and Movies this could be a great resource for a print out used in game.

Found this on the net... not famous but could be useful for ship design.

Only wish some did a cut-away art of an Omega class destroyer.
In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

It's not finished.  And by carved, he literally means whittled out of wood.  And it's not a cut away, just a model.  I did it in pieces (fuselage, engines, wings) and need to make the joints and glue them together.  Some day I'll finish it and post pictures.

Cool TerlObar... I found a forum months ago on Retro Sci Fi and there are tons of drawings of weapons and lots of carved old school space ship models, very nice what people have made. 

I like the Omega Destroyer, nice.
