Dear Justo, I see nothing and it is written "If You want share profiles of this aircraft with our visitors - mail to webmaster"... Have you done it?

Thanks Jemiba, I've seen the 3 of them.
Interesting Shturmoviks with tandem wings, 1937. Very Delanne-like.
Edit: I have checked in the Docavia bool "Les Chtormoviks" and there are 2 pages, photographs and drawings about this family, pages 118-119.

Empannage evaluation
thanks, Andrew, tell me how accurate the dimensional data of this aircraft. I mean the wingspan of the main wing in all sources (Shavrov, Rastrenin ...........) is equal to - 11 m against 9,8 m (according to the latest data of the article in M-Hobby №178)

This drawing was not published by M-H. I think Shavrov, RastreninPerov
used not original reports, but some kind of secondary reference. They together
confused first flight date.
