The markings are nicely printed (by Cartograf) and provide national markings, distinctive tail art markings as well as a nice set of airframe stencils. The decals are all single-layer - none of them require you to stack one decal atop another to recreate complex art as with some other decal manufacturers. Note that the instructions provide information on only eight of the 18 examples, the rest are covered on the Caracal Models website (URL provided in the instructions).

My sincere thanks to Caracal Models for this review sample!
