This is one of the books in Kagero's more recent series. The book provides both superb color profiles from other Kagero books along with a nice decal sheet. In the past, Kagero books were known for providing decals or photo etch or masks with their books as a bonus, but that was discontinued many years ago for various reasons. These decal sheets are not for specific aircraft but so far, have been limited to providing insignia.

This one is the second in a series on aircraft of the Warsaw Pact. The focus of this book is on fighters, specifically MiG fighters. You have profiles covering the MiG-15, 17, 19, 21, 23, and 29. This volume covers the last three types more than the first three. Also, there are a few Soviet marked MiGs in this edition. The MiG-23 is mostly camouflaged aircraft. Since the camouflage scheme varies wildly, the one upper view is only really accurate for the single aircraft in question. 

The decals are as in other editions and consist of insignia. There are insignia in both 1/72 and 1/48 covering Poland, Czechoslovakia, and East Germany (two styles) which are the feature aircraft in the book.

I anticipate that this series will do very well with modelers everywhere. The profiles in themselves are worth the asking price with the decal sheet being a bonus.
