Ultracast is well known for quality resin replacement parts and especially for their line of exhaust and seats. These two sets are for the Eduard 1/48 P-39/P-400. The difference between the two seats is the harness. Set 48-106 has an American Harness and so is suitable only for the P-39. 48-107 has the British Sutton Harness and is good for both British P-39s and all P-400s. As you may know, the P-400 was developed for the RAF so even those in US service had the Sutton Harness.

As with all Ultracast parts the quality of the resin is first rate and the seats are easy to remove from the resin block. No real worries about sanding a hole in the bottom of the seat (as I tend to do with nearly all of the seats in other resin sets!).
