My first IAR 80

IAR 80 was an iconic Romanian build fighter plane from the late ’30s. The model I made comes from a HobbyBoss kit, in 1:48 scale – recommended as one of the best in matter of details and accuracy for this model. It was, indeed, very pleasant to build.

After assembling the interior and painting it, the fuselage was closed and prepared to be “wing mounted”
I painted the engine and attached to the plane
This kit doesn’t have a lot of surface details, so I took the decision to add a few … rivets.
This is a preview of riveting



After applying the decals, the weathering was minimum, a pin wash, followed by some evacuation and guns smoke. Then the final assembly was in place.

This is the final result is bellow, enjoy!
