If you don't already have them, download the base files for the model from the links provided above.

Extract the model folders from their respective .zip files to your aircraft folder. By default, the aircraft folder is located at:

FS2004: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\FS2004\Aircraft
FSX: C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes

(If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows, the default location will be in "Program Files (x86)" not "Program Files".)

To install the textures, choose one of the packages which corresponds to your version of the sim, and then choose which version (if in doubt, use the default FSX texture folder, which is DDS without MIPs). Copy the paint scheme folders to the corresponding aircraft folder.

Example: "This Package\texture.PLAAF" copies to "Aircraft\FAIB_B737-700"

Open the aircraft.cfg file with Notepad or Wordpad. You should see at least 1 entry beginning with "[]" numbering upward from 0. Go to the last of these entries (right before the "[General]" section), and take note of the number of the last entry. Then copy-and-paste the corresponding "[fltsim]" entry from the "Add to Aircraft.cfg.txt" file in this package right after the last entry, and before the "[General]" section. If you have just installed the model, you will see a note at the beginning of the file telling you where to paste this new entry.

Change the "x" in the [fltsim.x] line on the newly-pasted entry to the next number. If this is the first fltsim entry, please note that it will need to be numbered "0", NOT "1".
