 ...again on the Piaggio theme, I found a rather bad slide of an unidentified wooden wind-tunnell test model. As you know, modern scanners have some trouble with 35-mm slides, and, moreover, this particular shot is out of focus. I suppose that the label on the nose could read P.142, ma it's also possible that the aircraft is the P.115 or one of the various derivative of the P.32 family that Piaggio apparently continued for some time even when eng. Pegna joined Caproni-Reggiane.
I cannot say "enjoy it" as I'm well aware that the picture is very bad

 Hi Hesham and all,
continuing on the same subject, I found, on the already mentioned issues of "Aero Fan" and in my archives, some pictures of the lesser known Piaggio projects of late thirties.
All are related to shipborne seaplanes, answering the various Regia Aeronautica/Regia Marina requirements for reconnaissance aircraft destined to battheships and cruisers.
There are the P.109, P.113, P.117, P.120 and P.124. Some are wooden small scale wind tunnell models and others are preliminary technical drawings. The seaplane seemingly flying in front of the pier of the Piaggio's Finale Ligure Marina plant (where seaplanes were built) is probably tha same model or mock-up appearing in the "Luce" movie, already shown on Secret Projects.
I hope you can enjoy all the matter
Nico

My Dears,
unfortunately I failed to find any further hint about the P.102. It seems that it was for sure a four-engined plane but I cannot say if commercial or bomber.
By the way, about the Piaggio lineage, in my previous post I wrote that the P.1HH Hammerhead is an optionally manned drone. In fact, only the technology demonstrator was such an aircraft as the definitive prototype is only unmanned.

Hi Loren,
