With each aircraft profile, there is a brief summary about the aircraft presented including some tragic details of aircraft lost during flight test or flight demonstration. The decal printing is perfectly in register. The instructions are printed in a 24-page booklet that provide decal placement for each aircraft type. These will provide colors and patterns needed to replicate some of these really interesting color schemes.
