The instructions provide good color and paint information to replicate these various color patterns.

This set is sized for the Hobby Boss kits but will work on your favorite 1/48 Flanker. The painting instructions provide the colors using Akan paints (also available through Linden Hill Imports). Linden Hill Decals can be purchased directly from their website at http://www.lindenhillimports.com/.

My sincere thanks to Linden Hill Decals for this review sample!
