Two FG.1 and seven FGR.2s are depicted on the sheet. Details are as follows

The decals are beautifully printed and feature thin carrier film.



This release offers a great variety of camouflage and markings for anyone planning to build the brand new Airfix 1/72 scale Phantom FG.1 and forthcoming FGR.2 kits.

Highly Recommended.
