The old Tamiya 1970s vintage 1/35 Military Miniatures Series instructions were probably some of the best ever produced. They usually included a history of the kit subject that was more inclusive of information than Wikipedia, a parts tree diagram breakdown that included a description of each part (i.e. cylinder head, sprocket wheel, etc.), the TO&E chart for that particular vehicle or weapon, and great instructions with words and photos for the actual build, along with helpful hints. While some of their translations in the instruction sheets could cause a smile or chuckle, the overall quality was excellent.
F is for FIRE, That burns down the whole town!
U is for URANIUM... BOMBS!
N is for NO SURVIVORS...
