Here are some of my favorites. The best was il2skins.com but its been down for a while now after an unfortunate incident with the company hosting the site. The creator of the site is working on a bigger and better version which will hopefully be done soon.
After you download the skin open the zip file its in and place the jpeg file from inside the zip into the appropriate aircraft folder in your skins folder.

C:/
Ubisoft
Pacific Fighters
PaintSchemes

First off go here: C:\Program Files\Ubi Soft\IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\PaintSchemes\Skins on your HD to find where the skins are in the sim... If you only have PF then the folder will say... Pacific Fighters and it wil be on the drive you have PF installed on. This is where you will put the skins you find. Now as far as getting skins goes there are several good places. Look in my signature at the Sturmovik Essentials link. Go to Netwings,Airwarfare,Skinners Heaven, to start. There are several places that are hosting skins now since IL2 Skins is temporarily down but try these sites first. Once you download a skin just unzip it to the appropriate skin folder. In most cases the skin for the different variant of a particular plane will go in the same folder. For instance... all the Corsair skins will fit into any F4-U or Corsair skin folder. Most of the me-109 skins will fit onto any 109...... etc.

BTW.... I see this is your first post here gunny....... !S! welcome aboard....... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Download skinmanager and install your skins with the press of a button! Also, there are some good historical skins for PF aircraft made by members of our squad.
