Looks good, the picture reminds me of the Yak-12, which was a handy little craft.

I based the drawing on the Yak-12, but cleaned it up a bit - the wing is cantilever like the OTL Do27, and a few other structural items - stressed skin versus tube and fabric. It may find a place in the civil market at home but it is aimed at overseas markets.
