I want to share a site i found (maybe well known, but new for me):

in this page they have a lot of magazine articles, war memories, etc:

i haven't had time to analyse, but it seems to have good data about armour units & operations in ww2.

ciao a tutti

Here's a link to the folks reconstructing a full size Fiat 2000.
Last I heard they were finishing the CAD modeling and getting ready for the manufacture of the parts. They need to raise 1,000,000 Euro. I'm not sure how far along they are with the fund raising but I'm sure you can find it somewhere on the site:

These are the latest AFV articles from tank Encyclopedia:

The site is easy enough to navigate. Look for the articles dated 2018 for the most up to date Italian vehicles.
A lot of Italian WWI projects such as the Gussalli walking tank, Pavessi, and Fiat 2000 can be found here.

There are some updated modern tank articles as well (Leonardo M60, OF40, etc...).

Pista! Jeff
With the fiat 2000 now finished, the team decided to continue with a rebuild of a Fiat 3000.

There's still some interesting pics of the Fiat 2000 and some events planned. I'm looking forward to seeing it in a parade or something.

A very nice reconstruction. Great to see!
It looks like they already have the hull components for the Fiat 3000 assembled, according to their face book page. There's some nice pictures of them in service during the 1920s.

There was also some talk on the warthunder forum about building a P43 bis to scale. That would be much harder due to the lack of info.

Apparently, according to the same source, an OTOmatic was reacently restored and placed in a museum with a dummy gun.

MIT students following his lead:

"In 1918, long before George Jetson commuted to Spacely Space Sprockets, the U.S. Patent Office issued Felix Longobardi the first patent for a vehicle capable of both driving on roads and flying through the air. But given all the impractical prototypes built since Longobardi’s original whimsy, history suggests that any vehicle design combining these two modes of transport will be a commercial failure: aero-auto hybrids always seem to result in a compromise that serves both functions poorly."
