First Look

Yahu Models is a prolific maker of color-printed instrument panels for a wide variety of kits in popular scales. This is one of their latest releases, this set is for the Roden 1/32 O-1 Bird Dog kit. The set includes the color-printed instrument panel with excellent resolution and featuring full-color details even down into the instrument faces. This set also includes the radio control head located to the left of the pilot's head, a fuel selector valve, and a checklist placard that sits just below the instrument panel.

L-19/O-1 Bird Dog Instrument Panel

With the large windows and open door into the cockpit of the Roden O-1/L-19 kit, this set will provide some excellent visual detail with little effort. You won't many other solutions out there that can provide such excellent detail at an affordable price.

You can order this set at HobbyZone USA.

My sincere thanks to HobbyZone USA for this review sample!
