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
