Repaint name: FSX default aircraft - P51_Mustang_racer - Fictional REpaint "Wild Horses"

Painter's notes and Installation instructions.

This paint has been prepared by Chris Brisland.

This paint is for FSX default aircraft - P51 Racer - This is purely a fictional repaint I did as an exercise in texture effects.


This zipfile contains only those textures actually changed during the painting process.

Open your FSX aircraft folder for this particular download - it will be something like C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\P51_Racer.

Extract this zipfile there. Make sure the winzip option "Use Folder Names" is checked. A new folder will be created.

Next open the aircraft.cfg file with any text editor program (Windows editor does the trick) and find the last block of text that starts with a line [fltsim.x] where the x will be a sequential number which starts at flightsim.0 and goes on for as many variants of the model are installed.

The path to the aircraft configuration file will be:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\SimObjects\Airplanes\P51_Racer/aircraft.cfg

Copy and paste the block of text from below into the aircraft.cfg file and change the x in the first line to the next number up in sequence in your cfg file.

Go flying and enjoy!.

description="This race-modified North American P-51D wrings extra performance out of one of the best-performing fighters of World War II. The racer's reduced wingspan provides better low-level maneuverability and reduced drag. But this race aircraft attacks the pylons at Reno not with guns, but with more than 3,000 horsepower. Its Rolls-Royce Merlin V-12 is tricked out to produce twice the power of the factory Merlin engine."
