Bah, voi ragazzi e la vostra fantasia, armatura SP completamente armata e HMMWV armati! Perché indietro ai miei tempi …
I’m starting to feel the itch of a hobby I gave up almost 20 years ago. I built models as a kid but gave them up after getting married. I wasn’t that good at it, I didn’t have the time, 2 boys and 5 cats meant something was bound to get broken and I realized I always enjoyed the research more than the actual build.
Over the past couple of months I’ve been watching several different WWII documentary series and a couple of weeks ago one of them showed this oddball Italian tractor/prime mover that looked vaguely familiar but I couldn’t place. How did I know it was Italian? I didn’t, but the giant wheels had me pretty sure it was. I dug around the interwebs and determined it was a Pavesi P4 100 Mod. 30A:
They even made a later version with pneumatic tires (steel wheels with folding spikes for traction was so 1920s):
Sorry, where was I? Oh yeah, most of the pics I found were of models and I started feeling that old familiar tug so maybe there will be a model or two show up in the future. Probably some kind of oddball AFV in 1/72….
