The decals have markings for two aircraft, an all green Australian Army example, and a camouflaged plane of the Royal Thai Air Force. I had to adjust the brightness of the decal scan to bring out the white markings. The instructions are two sheets of A4, clearly printed in Czech and English, with a short history, pictures of the parts and decals and a brief guide to working with resin. An eleven stage photographic assembly sequence is provided, with most of the parts placement clearly shown.
