20 aircraft

This is one of Aeromaster's first forays into 1/72 scale, judging by the black and white instructions and the 1993 date. It covers the aircraft of 12 top aces.

The majority of the aircraft are Bf-109s with a few other types tossed in there just to make things interesting. There are two decal sheets, one with all the unique markings and another that is just insignia. This latter sheet (not shown) is coded so that you can get the right style for each of the aircraft on the sheet. Each set of markings has a small historical and color section with some notes on any camouflage or markings peculiarities.

As there are 21 different aircraft on the sheet, covering, for the most part, two planes from each ace. This includes (and probably in order) Erich Hartmann, Gerhard Barkhorn, Gunther Rall, Otto Kittel, Walter Nowotny, Erich Rudorfer, Heinz Bar, Herman Graf, Theodore Weissenberger, Hans Philipp, Heinrich Ehrler and Anton Hafner.  I'm not going to go into the details of each one; several of which are quite well known by many of you anyway.

I'm not sure how easily this set can be found, but if you want them all in one place, this would be one worth seeking out.
