Was any toy (model) manufacturer willing to replicate the Romanian version of the licensed Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 ?

Azur FRROM, the company who produced this kit, also produces other Romanian subjects, such as SM-79 (radial and in-line engine), PZL P-11, PZL P-24, IAR 39, Fleet, and more to come. The owner, a Frenchman, is a very nice guy and has a special interest in Romanian aviation - he has close ties with the French magazine Air Magazine that regularly covers Romanian aviation subjects. They are very interesting people with a passion for Romanian aviation.

Good Morning Radu,

When I wrote "the Romanian version of the licensed Savoia-Marchetti SM.79" I meant the version with 2 engines, designed by the Romanian engineers.
I would not have one moment of doubt that the famous original Savoia-Marchetti SM.79 (with 3 engines) was already created by the model/toy manufacturers.
So, you meant that Azur FRROM created the scale model for the 2 engines version ?

Best regards,
Florin

Florin, yes, when I said Azur FRROM makes "Romanian subjects including SM-79" I meant the SM-79 used by Romania.
Romania never used the "three-engine" version. At first the SM-79 were powered by two I.A.R.14K radials and later they were powered by two in-line water-cooled Jumo engines. Azur FRROM makes both engine versions, I have the kits, they are the Romanian versions. :D

"FRROM" is an abbreviation for "FRance ROMania", and they cover Romanian subjects.

By the way, the "design" of the SM-79 was not "done by Romanian engineers" - let us not pollute this topic with Savoia Marchetti stuff, but I.A.R. built the SM-79 under licence and the two-engine version was designed in Italy (some even saw service in Italy). The only thing "made" in Romania was airframe construction and the engine I.A.R.14K, which itself was a licence-built Gnome Rhone Mistral Major. According to the licence contract, all modifications had to also involve the licensor, the owner of the design, respectively Savoia Marchetti. When the Jumo engines were installed, the designation was changed to JRS meaning "Junkers Romania Savoia" to indicate all parties involved.

I hope to meet them in Telford, I will ask them but... most manufacturers "keep their cards close to their chest" so they may not tell me or they may tell me with the proviso that I cannot tell anyone else. :D We shall see.
There was a 1/72 S.55 kit from Delta 2, they show up on eBay every now and then.

Call it a "honest mistake". I would not have written this if I would have known otherwise.

Hello "scorpio",

I liked your IAR 81C model from the very first moment you had shown it to us.
Was the landing gear included in the kit you bought, or you ordered it as a separate item ?

The reason of my question:
"Hannants" is recommending that alongside with Frrom-Azur FR8001, the interested person should also buy "Scale Aircraft Conversions SAC32087", which is "IAR-81C Rumanian fighter Landing Gear (designed to be used with Frrom-Azur kits)", seemingly made of metal.

So, is there any good reason to also buy this separate landing gear ?
Thank you,
Florin

Florin,

The kit include the landing gear and it's ok. The only thing would be nice to have from metal ( photetched) are the landing gear doors (wich are to thick) and cockpit interior details.

The Scale Aircraft Conversions SAC32087 ( with 17 $ ) made the landing gear and the tailskid from white metal.

The only exception for extra parts were Radu Branzan seatbelts, otherwise, everything is from the kit. I had no reason to use other landing gear.

Florin.
