So do you know what this aircraft is?

I almost confused this with one of the Morane-Salunier types, but the slightly different tail fin indicate that this is most likely the Rokozarski IK-3.
Correct! It is the Rogožarski IK-3, a Yugoslov single-seat fighter from 1940/1941. Well done!
manufactured by Rogožarski AD, Belgrade – Rakovica
It is the Rogozarsky IK-3.
The aircraft may be a “Polish Valor”. Years ago I saw a picture in a model airplane plans catalog, possibly a catalog of model airplane plans offered by “Cleveland Model Airplanes” which was owned by Mr. E.T. Packard that had plans for a rubber powered model airplane called by the same name. Of course the model was not a true scale and did not look very muchl like the photograph in this contest. The catalog had another model called “Austrian Chivalry” Maybe someone out there has on of these old catalogs and can shed some more light on the aircraft.
