The mighty F-1 rocket engine from the Saturn V is almost always depicted without the thermal insulation blankets that they actually flew with. Model kits, toys, artwork, diagrams… they all show the engine bare. It’s rare to find any sort of illustration of the insulation, though I’ve done so before HERE and HERE.

And here’s another… a photo from an F-1 training manual.
