The instructions are straight
forward and also include 3 and usually 4 views of each aircraft on this decal
sheet. Plus there is text providing insight on weapons loads.
The decals themselves are
flawlessly printed and very clearly printed on the 1/48 sample I have before me
and are contained on 1 decal sheet. Stencils are included but the jets had
fewer and fewer stencils as they were repainted.
Colours look solid and should cover very well, but the decals appear thin and of
a very high quality.
The are black and white
instruction sheet gives you all the info you need to build each of these jets.
Colours are listed as FS#'s, Model Master and Humbrol.
