There are 5 pages of instruction in the usual line drawing format that Eduard is famous for and which are so easy to follow.  The instructions also include painting instructions.

You will be required to fold the photoetch in this set, but if you have one of the Hold & Fold photo etch benders from The Small Shop, then this will be an easy process.  They have a variety of benders for sharp corners as well as rounded corners and in many different sizes.

The Academy is a fine kit, but the cockpit could use the extra super detailing that this cockpit set offers.  The addition of the pilot helmet will be an excellent item to pose on the wing or in the cockpit of your MiG-29.
