Kits At War’s instruction sheet is presented in black and white but where a colour is different, it is noted on the sheet. There are also no national markings except for one set of RAAF roundels and fin flashes but this would not be a problem to most modellers. Most markings are not numbered except for a few very small items which are picked out in the instructions so take care and study then well.
