Developed from the successful MiG-15 jet, the MiG-17 constituted a marked improvement in transonic handling over the previous model. Both the clear weather interceptors (the MiG-17 and 17F) and the all-weather fighters (the MiG-17PF and 17PFU) were evolved in the USSR, and a number of aircraft were licence-built in Poland (as the Lim-5 and Lim-6s) and in China (as the J-5 and J-5As), with the total number reaching 10,500 examples.
The "Dozen Set" line of handbooks is aimed especially at scale modellers. Each title describes twelve particular aeroplanes, documented by period photos, and also brings useful detailed shots which can be utilised in finishing the models.
The publication has 28 pages, including a total of 48 overall and detailed photographs, 12 pages with colour camouflage schemes and their description. Text in English. A comprehensive decal sheet is added for modellers' convenience. Two variants of this title are available, one including 1/72 scale decal sheet (MKD72005) and the other with 1/48 scale decal set (MKD48005). Following aircraft are depicted on each decal sheet: the USSR (3x), Czechoslovakia (2x), Poland (1x), East Germany (1x), Bulgaria (1x), Egypt (1x), North Vietnam (1x), China (1x) and USAF (1x).
