The package’s overall looks deluxe. Art on all of the profiles looks very well done, and the text nicely describes the colors and markings of each aircraft, showing (mostly) both sides of each aircraft. Colors are presented in Federal Standard, so check color charts before start painting with any other brand of colors!
