That's some nice looking Buran!
The De Havilland DH.89 Dragon Rapide was a light British passenger airplane of the 30s which proved to be a durable and economical design despite being made out of plywood.
It was in fact a scaled down re-designed DH.86 express but it prooved to have none of its flying vices. It became the most successful British short-hauled airliner of the 30s.
Some versions of it were made:
- -DH.89: First production version.
-DH.89A: Improved version, fitted with a landing light in the nose, modified wingtips and cabin heating. Versions with floaters and skis were also made.
-DH89A Series 4: Powered by two de Havilland Gipsy Queen 2 piston engines, fitted with constant speed propellers.
-DH89A Mk.5: One D.H.89A aircraft, powered by two de Havilland Gipsy Queen 3 piston engines, fitted with variable-pitch propellers.
-DH.89A Mk.6: One D.H.89A aircraft fitted with Fairey X5 fixed-pitch propellers.
-DH.89M: Military transport version.
-DH.89B Dominie Mk.1: Radio and navigation training version.
-DH.89B Dominie Mk.2: Communications and transport version.

Note: Due to the lack of sources i've left many of them without drawing.
Note2: As some of them are based are based in old black & white photos, their colours are not 100% certain.
Note3: The floaters of the hydro version are drawn by Whyme, kudos to him.
