Not sure if anyone else goes for the dioramas and such, but here's something that looks pretty decent in the photos...

Depending on the time of year, my passion is either for the Regio Esercito or the Regia Aeronautica. There's a terrific little reference in English, now long out of print by Ralph Riccio that covers Italian Fighting vehicles of WWII. The Autocannone da 90 (90/53) on the Lancia 3 RO was a formidable weapons system, the ballistics of the 90/53 matched almost indentically the Pak 43 88/53 and was a very advanced weapon for its time. Not sure if you've ever seen the 90/53 or 102/47 mounted on the Breda 'Dovunque' chassis with outriggers and platform in the ready position, now that's what I call a futuristic and cool design :wink:

Never seen it - I think I need to Google that one! :)

OK, Googled it, and I see it around there. It IS pretty cool! If you like German stuff, this'll agree with your sense of proportion and aesthetics. Spiffy!
