Revell China makes a PT-17 with the best fit I have ever seen. They put 
out a military one and a civilian aerobatic version. Both have full 
interior fuselage frame that fits perfectly inside the fuselage halves.  
Did I mention perfect fit? It leaves you to concentrate on assembly, 
painting and decals. The perfect mojo getter backer.
