As usual, for each airframe WolfPak include a side view with details of where individual markings are placed, copies of the relevant page of TO 1-1-4, and additional photographs where relevant. These are black and white photocopies, with the side views in colour.
Additionally, for each airframe, WolfPak provide a history of the aircraft with additional details of markings and specific colours (with FS595a references). Details of weapons loadouts are also provided.
All in all, very useful!
