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.  Stencils are not included.  Colours look solid and should cover very well, but the decals appear thin and of a very high quality.   

There are 9 page instruction booklet provides 4 view colour profiles of each aircraft.  The instruction include the history of each aircraft as well as painting assistance.  

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