FAF MS760 Paris No.71, unknown unit - 1977. This is a repaint of Tim Conrad's MS760 Paris (MS-760PARISJET.ZIP). Aircraft sports a freshly repainted "DE" code on the fuselage nose and is devoid of unit markings. It is one of approximately 20 ex-Brazilian C-41s that were purchased second hand by the French Air Force in the early seventies. Repaint by Michel Gerard.

Installation is quite straightforward. Extract all files with the "Texture.71" path in this archive (making sure that "using folder names" is ticked) to your FSX\SimObjects\Airplanes\MS-760 installation folder, and everything should go to the right place.
Next, the aircraft.cfg file has to be modified by pasting the following text. Make sure to change [fltsim.XX] to the next number in series in your aircraft.cfg file.

Unfortunately there are some problems with the MDL file. The most conspicuous one is the way the outer main landing gear doors have been made to operate: on a Morane Paris those doors were always open when the gear was extended. They did not just open and close at the moment when the gear was extending or retracting, as depicted on the model. Thus, a Paris on the ground always had those gear doors open, a very visible detail indeed. This detracts from the aircraft's overall appearance which otherwise would be very convincing (See pictures Landing_gear_problem_1.jpg and Landing_gear_problem_2.jpg).
An alternative panel.cfg is supplied that fixes a problem with the NAV1 radio on the 3D panel if you so wish (do not forget to back-up the original first).
Original sounds are the ones of the default FSX Bombardier CRJ 700. There are several much more realistic sound sets available here and there for Marboré engined aircraft. The most convincing ones in my opinion are those released in 2002 by Mark Hambly for the Fouga Magister designed by Kari Virtanen and Mikko Maliniemi (file name: foufinn1.zip).
I have designed several other repaints showing French MS760 Paris in various styles of markings, both military and civilian. Look for 760_01.zip, 760_26.zip, 760_32.zip, 760_34.zip, 760_35.zip, 760_39.zip, 760_65.zip, 760_71.zip, 760_73.zip, 760_116.zip, 760_AZLT.zip and 760_DOD.zip.
Those repaints would not have been possible without the very comprehensive paint kit supplied by Tim Conrad. Many thanks to him.
As usual, if ever your computer takes fire after installing this repaint, if your hard drive gets flooded by Coke or if your dog eats the mouse I can accept no liability whatsoever!
