Here you go. Two of the canopy decals (both sides), Three "28" decals (two on the vertical stab, one on the bottom of the starboard side wing) and one "ASW28" decal on the top of the starboard wing.

Got my ASW-28 yesterday. Very nice molding, great looking plane.
Just started the assembly. Did have a couple of problem areas. The metal wing tubes were sticking out past the wing root rib so the two wing halfs would no butt up tight together to allow the joiner plates to be installed. Tubes would not go in any further in the wing. Used a cut off wheel in Dremel to cut off about 1/8 " each side and they now fit tight and flush.
When I did mount wing on fuse the vertical fin is off a bit to one side which will make the stab also off when mounted. May have to heat a little and try to tweek it straighter. A three hand job. . Any suggestions on this ???? Everything else looks good at this point. Aros, did your esc come with brake on or did you have to program it in? Thanks.

I had the same problem with the vertical stab not being perfectly vertical and perpendicular in relation to the wing. I informed FMS of this...It's got to be a mold issue or shipping issue. Both of my ASW-28's had/have this problem. I didn't have the issue with the wing tubes though...

You have to program the ESC for brake on I believe...
