See Autocarro S.P.A. 9000 C 105/35.


When firing two large trails (carried by a supporting vehicle) were attached to the rear of the vehicle.

Ah ha!!   1/32nd Scale!  I knew it had a special appeal to me for some reason!   And from whence did you acquire the plans ?

I have a set of drawings that a friend sent me; also an old French magazine (Steel Masters) had a scratch build up article in it. That was my main inspiration. Plus a ton of pictures.


All the Best

As a one time builder of scratch built figures in Miliput can I recommend undercoating with white from an old fashioned car (full size) paint spray. The current ones work quite well but the old cellulose based ones provided an excellent base for arcylics, poster, water based 'oils' and good old fashioned proper oils.

Hello everyone from Alexandria, VA. I first would like to say that the model is beautiful. However, there seems to be some confusion as to its identity among the posters to the site. The gun is in fact not 105mm at all, but 102mm, granted, a very unusual caliber. The precise designation of this weapon in Italian was "Autocanone da 102/35 Ansaldo/Schneider su autocamion SPA 9000". The weapon had an unusual breech system designed by Schneider in France (this weapon was not used by France and was unique to Italy) involving a breechblock that rotated down horizontally to the axis of the breech ring when it was opened. The posters on the site are forgiven for thinking initially that this could be a 105mm as the Italians used another truck chassis (I am not certain the make, but probably Fiat) with the ordnance and recoil system of a Schneider 105mm L13S field gun (Cannone da 105/28 in Italian parlance) mounted on a pedestal on the extreme rear of the cargo bed. The Cannone da 102/35 was used as a field piece, anti aircraft gun and coastal defense gun, and some remained as static anti-aircraft guns as late as the end of the Second World War. There was also an L/45 version of this weapon.
