The instructions are clear and include 4 views of each aircraft.  The decals are beautifully printed on 1 decal sheet with 3 insert decal sheets and includes landing gear decals, wheel decals, ejection seat decals, TACTs Pod decals and helmet decals.  Plus a set of data markings for each aircraft and typical loadout information. The quality of the decals is first rate. 

Once again Fightertown Decals has pulled together a vast selection of Skyhawk Adversary jets for you to build.....the toughest part is deciding which jets on this decal sheet to build.  I'm partial to the blue ones...but hey...that's just me.
