The cabin looks strange : usual layout was 2+2 seatings, most often with a second stick and instrument panel for the right front seat. Few Fairchild 24 were without instrument on starboard and always with the second seat. And the cabin is so deep ; where is the bench seat and behind it the baggage compartment? No ambulance variant...
A set that's half true to life.
