Skins are merely paint schemes. If you don't have the a/c in question, then they won't work. They only change the appearance on aircraft you already have, they are made for either a family of a/c, or are for just one version of an a/c, depending on variations in families and the technique of the skinner.

To use a skin for an a/c you have, merely put it in the applicable folder, ie

F:\IL2FB\PaintSchemes\Skins

for my rig. Open a folder and paste it.

New a/c are added through updates, patches and addons, not CFS style. Keeps everyone on a more even playing field and helps keep the quality high. The vast majority I would say likes this, and so do I. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Hope this helps, good luck and
