A repaint of the payware Carenado Cessna 185. These textures represent a Cessna Skywagon B wheeled variant and a Skywagon F amphibian variant. Textures only. Repaint by Russel R. Smith.

The textures will work on the wheeled and amphibian versions only. Much to my surprise and dismay the rudder textures do not display correctly on all of the other variants. I thought Carenado had fixed that with the last patch. If I have the opportunity I will examine the textures and see if a set can be made for the other variants.

I have enclosed the aircraft config file for the one I use. You can modify the original to pick up texture.COTW and texture.COTW_A. Extract the texture.COTW to the "Carenado C185F" folder and texture.COTW_A to the the "Carenado C185F Amphibian" folder. The zip file contains all the necessary files for this texture scheme and are bmp files. Make sure "Use Folder Names" is checked so it will create the texture.COTW folder and texture.COTW_A when you extract the files. You do not need to copy any additional files to the texture.COTW or texture.COTW_A folders.

Change the 'X' to the next number in your config file.

This is for the wheeled variant:
