Hi everybody:

In a previous post we talk about the Piaggio P.133 strategic bomber, the last wartime project of Eng. Giovanni P. Casiraghi.
The first postwar was the P.134 that I never saw. I know that it was a twin-engined light transport aircraft with two 800 HP engines (perhaps Isotta-Fraschini Delta). Now I find this side view of a P.135 and I think that is possible that it was a version of the P.134 with different (air-cooled radials) engines in the 900 HP class.
After the P.135 came the P.136 Royal Gull, the very wellknown amphibian we all know.
Anyone can enlight us about the P.134 and P.135?
Nico

On the P-135 a resume of all is known (including the one and only three-views) is here:
http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,9687.msg89087.html#msg89087 . I have an extract of the original report, but it is a more verbose exposition of the same.
As for he P-134, I seem to remember it was a light transport aircraft from 1945, later evolved in the P-137. But I could be wrong. I'll look in my papers. I think the identification of the P-134 with a Delta-powered version of the P-135 is difficult to believe: why Casiraghi didn't submit it to the 1946 Concorso, then, and choose to submit an against-specification design ?
BTW, the Search function is your friend, if is not then it is an enemy to be feared....
