I have enclosed the aircraft config file for the one I use. You can modify the original to pick up texture.Bubbles. Extract the files to the "A-1J" folder. The zip file contains all the neccessary files for this texture scheme and are dds files. Make sure "Use Folder Names" is checked so it will create the texture.Bubbles folder when you extract the files. You do not need to copy any additional files to the texture.Bubbles folder.

The above line is the last line in the aircraft.cfg changes.

The changed repainted files are the copyright of Russel R. Smith. The original unaltered files are the copyright of Tim Conrad.

This file is to be uploaded to www.avsim.com and www.flightsim.com only. I will consider uploading to other sites if requested.

If you have any photos of A-1Js or A-1Hs and want to share them with me I would appreciate it.

I would all so like to here your comments concerning the textures. Good, bad or indifferent. A comment would be appreciated.
