Tricky! Is that the final colour of those panels?

Those look like aircraft parts, and since they are loose, they are likely to be slats, flaps or gear doors etc.
Likely WWII era based on previous projects.
The garish colour suggests a German plane.

This is not as easy as I thought...

Baffled. I can't determine the scale of what I am looking at.

Heck, this is difficult. I figure if it's a trainer, it would be mostly yellow, not just a few panels. Japanese and US Aircraft in WW2 had some yellow parts, but not like those...

Figure it will be one of these "that was very obvious" once posted...

Some US Naval aviation planes had a fair bit of yellow, but those panels look too featureless to be part of a kit.
Probably a windsock. biggrin

Ok, I’m going to commit myself to a guess. T34 Mentor trainer.

Grogs out.

Unforunately, I'm not WFH today, so can't give this the attention it deserves. frown
So, with the latest clues, I'm going for the Meteor prototype Gloster E.28/39.

They look like gear doors, and I swear I know the shape of the two on the right from somewhere...

You are going to have fun rigging that with the short distance between upper and lower wings. If you pull that white / red stripe scheme off I'll stand you several large scoops of your preferred beer.

UNDERSTEER - is when you hit the wall with the front wing.
OVERSTEER - is when you hit the wall with the back wing.
HORSEPOWER - is how fast you hit the wall.
TORQUE - is how far you can take the wall with you.

They do look like gear doors, but I can't find a match anywhere.

Grog's comment jogged my memory. I was thinking it was the Mentor, but now I'm sure it's a flavour of Meteor.
