This next set from Yahu Models of Poland is for the Revell 1/48 PT-17 Kaydet kit. There are two identical panels, one for the front and one for the rear. Like other sets this will require the removal of previous detailing to provide a flat mating surface. One thing that is difficult to see in the images is that the image faces are glossy while the surrounding panel is a sort of crinkle finish, something that was very common in the 1930s and 1940s. These might also work on the Lindberg kit, but again, no promises. The addition of this set will really make your kit's cockpit come alive.
