As always back up any original files.

  1. Unzip downloaded folders to your desktop or temporary directory of your choice.
  2. Copy the " P-38 Army " Fear The Reaper" and paste it in the main aircraft folder. By default the main aircraft folder is located at: "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\FSX\SIM Objects /Aircraft.
  3. Be sure to completely unzip all files the aircraft file when complete will contain 6 files the Following 6 files goes in the aircraft folder CFG Airfile Model Sound Panel Textures.
  4. Unzip the gauges folder and put the gauges in the FSX gauges folder located at "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\FSX\Gauges " If you desire you don't have to gauges work just fine in the panel folder...

When using Mel Mutter's Original P-38 Panel in the Panel file only used a [VCockpit01] yet the Model was created with a [VCockpit01] & [VCockpit04] This left gamers looking out to their left and seeing a 1024 X 1024 Black square . The solution was to add a [VCockpit04] and I just made the a pixel size 1 x 1 This panel uses Mell Mutter's panel in 2D and the original Texture as the 3D panel this rework makes both work correctly .
