The instructions are clear and include 3 views of each aircraft.  The decals are beautifully printed on 2 decal sheets.  Three complete set of stencils is included on this decal sheet.

I've got a soft spot for the C-130 in the camo schemes....especially desert camo schemes, so this sheet is a feast for the eyes.
