Repaint for Calclassic's Curtiss CW-20 (C-46) "Commando", depicting the Buffalo Airways C-FAVO in her current appearance. Compared to the earlier repaint by Manuele Villa (46GA_BUF.ZIP), C-FAVO looks a little different now, as seen on the TV show "Ice Pilots NWT". Completely new repaint from scratch to get her today's appearance. Major differences to the former outfit are: registration letters on the tail section, underwing paint and company lettering, cargo door frame paint, new shiny ice shield panels. These are texture files only. Prior installation Curtiss CW-20 Commando base pack is required. By Markus Hellwig.

I downloaded the Cal Classics C-46 Commando which went well. Then I downloaded the Buffalo Airways" texture for said aircraft from this site. The installed textures crashed my computer. I did it again and it did it again. Unless you have an answer that has nothing to do with my computers' make, model or op system you needn't reply. I've been doing this for years on mostly the same computers (2 involved) with dozens of aircraft and textures successfully installed.
