Reini78

Carpathian Eagle...1/48 IAR-80 Romanian Airforce

Recommended Posts

#22/2017

My dad let the Romanian Bf109 follow a Romanian native, the IAR-80 from Hobby Boss. Not a bad kit, but partly a bit simple and less detail. The ailerons and flaps are molded in one piece so my dad cut them apart to give the model some more life.
EZ Line for aerials, decals from RB Productions, painted with Tamiya XF-81 RAF Dark Green and Gunze H417 RLM76.

The model shows an aircraft of Escadrilla 42/52 Vanatoare in 1941.

superbly made model, really different, best I've seen yet, this kit😊

 

making it myself, and yes, simple tooling, fits, well, engine I think bit disappointing, also engine cowling not the best fit, and weak detail on machine guns.

 

surprising, haven't seen to many made up, and magazine's seem to have given it the miss, and internet sites, yet made in some numbers and some historic events, and a all round bad guy, yet still little interest shown😊
