The instructions are quite complete, taking up seven full sheet of placement diagrams. These show you every step of assembling this most complete upgrade set. While at first it seems as if the instructions are redundant, they actually provide the build in layers to be sure that you are able to get everything in its proper place.

Those who have used Griffon Model sets know how nice they are and this one is no different. The set is superbly etched and will add a lot to your particular build.
