Watch accurately this forum. There was a nice post from sir Robert Hurst on 10 dec '92.

Eduard, here is a fragment from Vanatorul IAR-80 by Dan Antoniu and George Cicos, Modelism, 2000:

Toate avioanele IAR-80/81 au iesit din fabrica in culori de camuflaj tipic englezesc astfel:
-extradosul: vopsit in benzi ondulate din stanga sus spre dreapta jos, vazut de sus, benzi de culoare verde-oliv inchis cu benzi de culoarea pamantului ars inchis


Hope that helps you make the model you wanted. I would suggest no. 372 of Constantin Balta: http://www.arr.go.ro/p018.htm

Good luck!

thanks victor. now i know the colors to use, because in the instructions it said tan instead of brown, but tan was too light, so i checked with you guys and it's brown.
thanks again

sorry but i think you'll have to wait another week for the pics victor. my airbrush propellant ran out and i can't paint it. besides i've had a lot of problems with the model itself, especially the aerilons, they don't stand on the plane.
sorry again
