Airscale from the UK produces a series of instrument face decals and has recently expanded their range as you can see here. In this release, we have typical cockpit placards that you'd find in Commonwealth aircraft circa World War II.
This set provides a variety of placard types and styles which are intended to 'busy up' the otherwise sterile interior of scale cockpits. In 1/24 scale, this set is essential given the size and visibility of kit cockpits. This set provides two complete sets of these placards.
With the advent of color-printed photo-etched parts from Eduard, many folks simply wait for Eduard to get around to doing a detail set for their subject, but here is a nice alternative where you can add the three-dimensional detail (knobs, switches, etc.) to your instrument panel and then put these placards into place to instruct your scale pilot in the safe operation of your model.

My sincere thanks to Airscale for this review sample!
