I-185, N.N.Polikarpov

Two 20k shots of my 1/72 plastic I-185

A wooden fighter monoplane, designed around the new M-90 engine. Later the M-81, M-71 and M-82 were tried; finally the M-71 was selected, and the I-185 found itself abandoned together with this engine.

Several built and used in combat in 1941.
