So I’m getting ready to cut my Patty shapes. Can someone please double check me here before I cut? Thank you!

Does anyone know if the Tamiya 1/35 Semovente M40-75/18 is used on the Falcon. I must have seen it on a list somewhere, cause I have one. I put a note in it that it was used on the Falcon. I ck'd on Studio Scale Mods and they say it's the Carro Armato we need. Could be another mistaken buy. I have a few of those, LOL.


PS. I hear it's used on the Y Wing, so not a total loss.

This is the tree that is different. I don’t recognize anything on it.

It has some commonality with the M13/40 Carro Armato. The Armato has a few more parts so better to get that one.

I'm not sure about the Falcon, but... the 1/35 Italeri Carro Armato mufflers get used on the Starfire from Jason of Star Command. The Tamiya version doesn't have the correct ridges on the muffler halves. The Semovente does share a number of engine parts with the Carro Armato.

Cool that's good to know. If I could find better pictures of the Starfire, I would love to build one.

Man you must still be under 40, with vision like that. I've always sucked at I'd's. Glad we have these young whipper snappers to find this stuff. Pardon me, while I yell at some kids on my lawn, ; )
