The decals themselves are flawlessly printed and very clearly printed on the 1/72 samples I have before me and are contained on 1 decal sheet with 1 insert decal sheet.  Stencils are not included.  Colours look solid and should cover very well, but the decals appear thin and of a very high quality.   

The 9 page instruction booklet provides 4 view colour profiles of each aircraft.  The instructions include the history of each aircraft as well as painting assistance.  British aircraft have always included some colourful markings and this decal sheet is no exception.

There is quite the variety of aircraft included on this decal sheet in a variety of pre-war theatres.


You can order these decals direct from   Contact them for prices and ordering information.

Special thanks to Model Alliance for sending me this review sample.  You can purchase these decals direct from the Model Alliance website.
