This is a repaint of the Carenado Cessna 172N. Made by Carenado for Microsoft's Flight Simulator X. Textures only. Requires the payware Carenado Cessna 172II N.I used the blank textures available from Carenado.
I based this repaint on the classic Cessna Skyhawk 172 Circa early 1970's. The paint scheme comes from a 1/20th scale model I made as a kid.This is my first repaint and I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to tweak with it if you like. I used DXTBmp and to do my work. -Craig
