Thanks! You have all the right to be confused
Romania changed her markings a few times during last century: tricolor roundels at first (blue, yellow, red) (Romania was the second country in the world to adopt roundels, after France!). From 1940, after Romania aligned to Axis Powers, ARR adopted "King Michael's Cross" until 23 August 1944. After Romania defected from Axis, she readopted the tricolor roundels, but the Soviet Comrades demanded from 1946 to change them with the Communist bright star. After '80s, Romania started drifting apart from Moscow and, as an act of defiance, Romanian reinstated the original roundels, for all army branches. Side note: the Romanians were never proud of the red star and avoided its use whenever possible. In many instances, the "second line" army equipment sported no insignia over the Romanian olive drab or - specially for aircraft - civilian markings were provided with only a tricolor flash as identification. Sorry for the long explanation - I just felt compelled to do it.
I managed to put all the landing gear parts together eventually, but I didn't wanted to fiddle too much with the assembly, so I took no photos yet. I will update the build log soon!
