Really wonderful sketches including some uncommon types, thanks for sharing!  What is the Japanese one?  I don't recognize it.

PS--If you take requests, I love the Shavrov Sh-2!

Speaking as a guy who does a lot of computer aided drafting and 3D CAD modeling... there is a charm and a "life" to pen & ink that the precision of computers just can't match.

And so the endless circle of life comes to an end, meaningless and grim. Why did they live, and why did they die? No reason. Two hundred million years of evolution snuffed out, for in the end Nature is horrific and teaches us nothing

Thanks, everyone!

It's Aichi E11A “Laura”. I don't draw often, but I like Sh-2 as well and consider drawing it some day.

Yes, markers and pens/fineliners on paper.

Very nice! thanks for sharing your artwork  :)
All modern aircraft have four dimensions: span, length, height and politics.   TSR.2 got the first three right - Sir Sydney Camm

Beautiful !
I like specially that USCG type (don't know the model) , unusual angle for a drawing , makes it very lively, like image drawn from wingman position.
