This is a repaint (textures and model only) of Tom Gibson's and Greg Pepper's Gmax DC-6B in the colors of Canadian Pacific Airlines in the late 1960s. Repaint by Wayne Tudor.

It was produced using the DC-6 Paint Kit. You must have Tom and Greg's DC-6B to use these textures. These textures also require the dc6bv2 model (included) for the prop spinners.

This aircraft, CF-CZQ, is depicted as it appeared in service with Canadian Pacific Airlines in the late 1960s. The CP DC-6Bs originally operated from Vancouver to Australia and New Zealand via Honolulu and Fiji. They probably had the CB-17 engines and long range fuel tanks.

If you have your DC-6Bs segregated into CB-16 and CB-17 engine versions do the following:

  • Copy the included texture.CP folder to your DC-6B (CB-17) aircraft folder.
  • Copy the included model.v2 folder to your DC-6B (CB-17) aircraft folder.
  • Add the following section to your DC-6B (CB-17) aircraft.cfg file, numbering it in sequence.
  • Add the following section to your DC-6B aircraft.cfg file, numbering it in sequence.
