There are 6 pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  The instructions also include painting instructions.

You will be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.  They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

If you attach photo etch parts to clear styrene, then the CA glue fumes will fog the clear styrene.  To avoid fogging the clear styrene from CA glue fumes you can coat the clear styrene parts in Future to provide a barrier or use a different adhesive such as white glue or Future itself as a glue.  Future and white glue are effective to use to glue photo etch parts to clear styrene, but they do take a long time to dry.  

These missiles provide very high quality level of detail and realism.

You can buy this detail set and thousands of other items directly from Eduard Model Accessories.
