This is a repaint of the RealFlight Simulations excellent F6F Hellcat. These textures represent a F6F-5 of VF-83 USS Essex(CV-9) as it appeared in May, 1945. THESE ARE TEXTURES ONLY! You need the RealFlight Simulations F6F Hellcat payware package.

I have enclosed the aircraft config file for the one I use. You can modify the original to pick up texture.usn13. Extract the files to the "RF F6F_Hellcat" folder. The zip file contains all the essential files for this texture scheme and are dds files. Make sure "Use Folder Names" is checked so it will create the texture.usn13 folder when you extract the files. Copy the contents of texture.usn7 to the new texture.usn13 folder. DO NOT OVERWRITE ANY OF THE FILES IN TEXTURE.USN12.

CHANGE THE "X" TO THE NEXT NUMBER IN YOUR CONFIG FILE!!
Copy and paste the entry below to your bottom of the list of aircraft in the aircraft.cfg file.

The changed repainted files are the copyright of Russel R. Smith. The original unaltered files are the copyright of Realflight Simulations.

If you have any photos of Hellcats 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.

REMEMBER. FLY NAVY!
