Nardi 305 Argus engine.

The Nardi 305 fighter development was initiated by the Italian  Air forces during World War II to produce a simplified 'lightweight' fighter aircraft using so-called "non-strategic" materials. Despite being innovative. "Easy to build" is the objetive.

Very nice Pablo! Looks like a 'beefier' version of the real Nardi F.N.316M fighter trainer. Good idea to change to a more reliable (and powerful) engine though!

Once again: Très Magnifique!
(I have no idea if I got that right).

The prop spinner is interesting.  Does its shape serve a special purpose (that it is not a plain/ordinary cone like others)?

From what I understand, the finned spinner (which was driven by the airflow as a windmill) was used to power the actuator of the variable pitch propeller.
