Unlike some other Avro York repaints this package uses an advanced model file of Manfred Jahn created for a better texturing of the nose cone area. So for these textures to work the folder model.moyd (included in this package) must be present. This package also comes with suitable nightlight textures.
The archive a685boa2.zip has 17 files and directories contained within it.
