Well that’s probably a Tumansky under that cowl so I’m gonna say that this is a Polikarpov I-180S

The only right word is Polikarpov.

How about this:
From wikipedia,
"On 13 May 1941 the NKAP ordered the OKO to convert a MiG-3 to use the Shvetsov ASh-82A radial engine then entering production. The resulting aircraft had a variety of names, including I-210, MiG-3-82, Samolyot IKh or Izdeliye 65. The design was a failure, but was promising enough to continue the program as the I-211."

Sorry, guys... I was on holidays, with my tablet not working... only back home today. Liguria was so nice ! And food delicious.

So... seems Graeme and Bwf. have it !

It is a Polikarpov I-185-M-82.

Here is the full picture :




I would say Graeme had it first. So he has hand too.
