includes two Viet Nam era Navy paint schemes and visibility options

That "texture.cfg" file thing doesn't always work for me, hence this manual
copying. I know it's a real pain....
This package is a stand alone release. You do not have to have my earlier A-1J
USAF Skyraider installed. If you do, the gauge .cab file should already be

DO NOT post or upload to any site or CD, or any other media. And in any event DO
NOT try to make money on this package. That means NO fees or charges to access!
I ONLY upload to Sim-Outhouse.com, and Flightsim.com. If you find and download
my planes from anywhere else I WILL NOT support it!
Better to ask who ever uploaded my plane.
I have nothing against other sites,(well, just the pirate assholes!) I just want
to keep things simple, and easy to track.
