Finishing notes: The instructions refer to "fuselage color" for the base color of the kit. This kit is molded in a gray plastic intended to duplicate the correct "fuselage color" for the X-Wing. You can create a great-looking model without painting this "fuselage color" at all, but if you'd prefer to paint it nevertheless, just mimic the color of the plastic it's molded in. Also, we have not translated the decal marking sheet as it's not really necessary. Just be aware that the four marking examples shown refer to Red Leader, Red 2, Red 3 and Red 5, in that order.
