  • You must have Carenado's payware C185F Skywagon Bush for FSX installed.
  • Unzip the folder to your desktop. Open the unzipped MDIFW folder and place the texture.MDIFW folder and thumbnailX into your Carenado C185F Float folder.
  • Copy the entry below and paste it below the last aircraft in your aircraft.cfg file replacing the X in [fltsim.X] with the next number in sequence. Also replace the X in the ui_thumbnailfile=thumbnailX.jpg (the last line of the entry) and the actual thumbnail image itself (thumbnailX) with the next available thumbnail number in sequence.

title=C185F MDIFW
ui_variation="MDIFW FLOAT"
ui_typerole="Highwing single Engine Prop"
description="The C185, also known as the Skywagon, is a six-seat, single engined, general aviation light aircraft. The amphibian and float variations are widely used in Canada and in the North of the United States. Landing on lakes and rivers and flying at low altitude among narrow green valleys are the specialty of this bird."

Special thanks to Bill Womack for his tutorial video on how to paint without layers which provided the inspiration for my first repaint.
