The 5 pages of instructions are clear and include views of each aircraft including 4 views of a standrard jet to help with stencil placement and camo paint application.  The decals are beautifully printed on 2 decal sheet in the flawless quality we all expect from Leading Edge Models.  You also get info in the instruction sheets about certain antennas etc.

Now is your chance to get a full decal set for your next CAF CF-18.


I would like to thank Leading Edge Models for providing me with this review sample.
