This sheet is designed for the Dragon/DML 1/72 MiG-17A. That is because most of the other MiG-17 kits are of the later, afterburner MiG-17F and they cannot easily be converted to the earlier model.

There are six markings options for this one, most of them in unpainted metal. First up is a Soviet plane that participated in the repression of the Czechoslovak uprising in 1968. This feature two red fuselage bands.

Next is a plane of the Soviet aerobatic team with the entire upper surface in red.

Third is an early East German aircraft. Note that if you have a set of early insignia with a plain center section, then those would be appropriate as well.

A nice Iraqi Air Force offering is next. This is from 1961.

Option five is an Afghan Air Force plane from 1962.

The final offering is a Mongolian Air Force plane from 1966.

The decal sheet is nicely printed and offers a small addendum slip (not shown) for the Mongolian tail markings.
