Hi,
Ik have just bought the Airfix 1/72 WW2 Luftwaffe personnel kit. It does not contain a paint instruction leaflet nor are any paint numbers shown on the box. Is that correct or should it contain paint instructions?
Cheers,
Erik

From memory I don't think these sets come with painting instructions - it's the devils own job getting the paint to adhere to the polyethylene.

Is that the ones that say "To paint, use Airfix paints"? Helpful!
