As usual, Beautiful renderings, Clave.
Well Done!

I'm sorry, but there's something that makes the IAR look like an enormous metal dildo, especially in the color photo.

:lol:

No more so than the P47, the TempestII, or the FW 190 D series, in my view.

I will say this: the IAR 80 was a Very capable little aircraft, and did sterling work, right up into the 1960's, IIRC.

I've long admired it, and it is one of few Eastern European aircraft I would devote the resources to reproduce as a flying replica, if I had said resources. (Though, as with a Do335 V13, I'd build the replica using composites, which is 'cheating' in a way; though more efficient.)
