I fell in love with the beautiful shapes of the Polikarpov 180/190. Theese models are not scale models. It's a lot of artistic freedom in here.
But my main goal here, was to make some nice pics out of it.

I share your passion for planes..this model you've done is great I have seen many references of this and other aircraft.While I'm not a expert,your efforts are excellent.A plane I did also has ribbed surfaces,but your's seem better achieved.Are they bump mapped or part of wireframe? P.S. Love to see a pic with pilot in traditional headgear but if your like me so little time and so much on the go ,we'll understand. :B eaver !

I wouldn't call it a "lesser-known" plane. Anyone who know anything at all about aviation knows who good and how relable these birds were in the days before and even during the Spanish War. Great work. However, could the artist do something about these helmets? Aviators do not use bike helmets, and furthermore, there were no plastic helmets with light filters until probably the time when the first jet planes arrived.

@pixeldump: Well, As I wrote further up here, I'm looking into making an old-fashioned headgear. And as to your trouble with the timewarp; Artistic Freedom. Theese could be replicas flying today, or whatever your imagination would tell you. And I must say; People have different levels of knowledge, and still enjoy imaginary shots of aeroplanes.
