    Thanks, Tzaw, I am just starting to learn russian (serious), so I will keep the pictures.

    Edit: I forgot to say that this bug is really nice...

    Seen that before somewhere, might have a photo in one of my books...

    Looks very similar to the Polikarpov I-15 and I -16 too, dosen't it?
