Other Comments: 
PT-17 has the R-670-5 engine. This one with a wooden prop. I used two kit decals for the wooden prop and spliced them together to get full coverage. I separated and built up the elevators and rudder to give them a "relaxed" look. I added spark plug wires to the engine cylinders. Nice little kit, especially for the price!
