Given my heavy investment in 20mm WW2 Romanians, I was very pleased to find this model in production. It is a single-piece metal casting by True North. The IAR 80 was an indigenous Romanian design which entered service in 1940 and 66 were on strength on the eve of Operation Barbarossa.
The numbers and crosses are decals which were also sourced from True North, though I opted to paint on the tail stripes. This expands my Forţele Aeriene Regale ale României (Royal Romanian Air Force) to five models!
