IAR 80 (oz13112)
About this Plan
IAR 80. Rubber scale model of the Rumanian WWII fighter.
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Quote: "It’s always nice to have a group of friends to kick modeling subjects around with. One day the subject just happened to be aircraft with Romanian markings. Naturally the lone Romanian fighter aircraft of WW2 came up, the IAR80…of which plans are either rare or very difficult to find. Within 24 hours a member of our group, Tom Akery had produced a pseudo dime-scale plan to work from. Tom cautioned me to beware of any errors he might have made in design, to which I responded there was nothing a blade, sanding-block and glue couldn’t rectify. Thanks, Tom. Be certain to check out the original spec data and operational history at Wikipedia. And thank you to Steve and Mary at Outerzone! Neal"
Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

ScaleType: This (oz13112) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.
If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.
ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IAR_80
Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

Neal, thank you for yet another obscure and beautifully rendered subject. Your submissions are always enlightening!

I come from Slovakia and I am interested in airplanes and RC models. That's why I took the liberty of sending a new plan for a World War II fighter.
IAR-80_ROMANIA 59.1 in range. Control line profile scale model. Wingspan 150.114 cm, for 1 x 3.26 cc engine or for RC 6.52 - 9.78 cc engines. You can also build the IAR-80 ROMANIA as an RC model controlled by a 6-channel transmitter.
You can also set up the IAR-80 ROMANIA as an RC model controlled by a 6-channel transmitter. It's worth a try. I just attach my opinion and plan for the complete construction of the model. I'm sending it to email@example.com Good luck flying.

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
