the Umbra AUT.45 was a twin engined observation and light bomber aircraft project...

Umbra AUT.45 was an April 1938 twin-engine reconnaissance project (in competition with the CANSA FC.20 and others). Power was by 2 x 840hp Fiat A.74 RC.38 with optional Fiat A.76 RC.40 radials (with suggestions that Alfa Romeo Monsone were also being considered). Development ended in April 1940. Crew of 3, Span 18.56m, 4 x 12.7mm Breda-SAFAT machineguns.

If everythings else fails: Copy a screenshot into a new document (any graphic software, or even
a word document will do ) and cut out the parts you need. Maybe not the intention of the site
owner, but sometimes the end justifies the means .... ;)
It takes a long time, before all mistakes are made ...

Well, being myself the Author of the Nuova Guida agli aeroplani di tutto il mondo, I can tell you that the preview from which these images are cropped, is made for that  ;) .
Sincerely, I don't remember where I did recollect the image, but If I find it again amongst those scanned, will be for sure o a better quality, and I'll put on these pages -I promise. Moreover, I alse released the reduced editions of the books on P2P, search for it.
Happy to read that my little work has been useful! ;)

Hi Umbra AUT.18.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeronautica_Umbra_Trojani_AUT.18
http://www.res-aeronautica.com/2010/07/aeronautica-umbra-ausa-t18.html

"Born from the same Regia Aeronautica requirement that spawned the Caproni-Vizzola F.5, FIAT G.50, Macchi C.200, Meridionali Ro 51 and Reggiane Re 2000 fighters, the A.U.T.18 flew for the first time on 22 April 1939, powered by a 1,044 hp (778.51 kW) Fiat A.80 R.C.41 radial engine. The fighter had an all-metal stressed-skin structure, covered in duralumin, featuring an inwardly-retracting undercarriage and retractable tail-wheel and was armed with two 12.7 mm (0.500 in) Breda-SAFAT machine-guns mounted in the wings just outboard of the undercarriage.
Flight trials proved disappointing and lagged behind the other fighters in Progetto R - the modernisation (riammodernamento) of the Regia Aeronautica. With no production orders forthcoming, despite the prototype being returned to the Umbra factory at Foligno for modifications on 20 February 1940 and a second flight test series from 5 November 1940, no improvement was demonstrated over fighters already in production so the A.U.T.18 was abandoned."

Hasan, your link is not complete. With the link you gave, I need to search 216 separate pages.
