These are two fictional repaints of the Alphasim/Virtavia B-58 as it might have appeared had it been bought by the RAF as an interim supersonic bomber prior to the introduction of the TSR-2. One is the aircraft as it might have been delivered in anti-radiation white with standard roundels, the other a later low-level strike camouflage. Both are decorated as No. 617 Sqdn. aircraft. Convair actively sought to sell the aircraft abroad in the late 1950's in a light-weight stripped out version. The cost of these aircraft was prohibitive and none were sold. The Australian Government showed a fleeting interest but the project was dropped. These are 2048x2048 .dds files suitable for FSX only. By Dave Quincey.

These are 2048 x 2048 .dds files suitable for FSX only. The aircraft will portover quite well from FS2004; details of changes necessary are available on a variety of flight simulation forums.An FSX-native version is currently in preparation and it is anticipated that these files will fit the new model.
Unzip the folder 'B-58 RAF' into a temporary location such as your desktop. Drag and drop the two texture folders, 'texture.RAF1' and 'texture.RAF2', into your Alpha B-58 folder then copy and back up your aircraft.cfg file. Note that these folders contain only the essential files for the external model; they also contain a texture.cfg file pointing at 'texture.2AF' for the remaining files. You can alter this to point to whichever folder has the remaining files or copy and paste them from another texture folder. Finally paste the following lines into the original aircraft.cfg file:
title=ALPHA B-58 Hustler RAF White
description=AlphaSim 2006\n\nConvair's B-58 Hustler is the sleekest, sexiest bomber to emerge from the Cold War era. The Hustler was not offered to the RAF but this is what it might have looked like on initial delivery in 1960.

title=ALPHA B-58 Hustler RAF Camo
description=AlphaSim 2006\n\nConvair's B-58 Hustler is the sleekest, sexiest bomber to emerge from the Cold War era. The RAF never operated the Hustler but this is perhaps what it would have looked like in the 1970's nearing the end of its service life.

Replace the [fltsim.xx's] with the next variation numbers and save.
