The latest batch of painted vehicles arrived from Jason at J.A.D Designs this week, including all of our WWII Italian vehicles.  These look excellent in the desert colours, so hats off to Jason for his work here.

Incidentally, if anyone knows the proper designation of the command truck in ITA19, let us know!  I can't seem to find any pictures online of anything similar, so I'm not sure of the original manufacturer or model name/number.

How do ITA8 & ITA19 compare :-

Thanks for the links Paul, that's about the closest I've seen to it so far!  It's the quartered windscreen and the weird shelf below that I can't seem to replicate on any WWII truck I've seen, so I'm curious as to what the designer used as his reference material.  Our model was made somewhere around 15-20 years ago though, so we don't have any info in our files anymore.

SPA Dovunque 35 (allegedly, I'd like to see the front!) radio truck from above



Standard lorry version



There is also an SPA Dovunque 41 whose front looks more like your command van (IMHO)



I think the Italian truck (ITA8) is a 35 and the command truck a 41

Thanks for the pics, those are all looking close.  The 8 wheel setup is definitely the same, with the spares hidden behind those arch covers, and the 4-pane windscreen might just be over-exaggerated dividers on a regular sectioned windscreen.  But then ours seems a lot more rounded and 'pug nosed' than the Dovunques in those pics...

Obviously too tired when posting in the wee small hours - Dovunque 41 image should have been



Rounded, slightly protruding nose and split windscreen - though possibly only on drivers side(?).

There was another image I forgot to bookmark.

... and some SPA Dovunque 35's with Breda 20/65 autocannons



Italian mobile AA guns .... one for the request queue? Smiley

"Dovunque" just means "cross country" or "go anywhere" - apparently.

Leon - You have got the two Semovente 75 the wrong way round - the model with the longer barrel is the 75/32, the model with the shorter barrel and pepperpot muzzle break is the 75/18. ITA17 and ITA16 respectively,
