In IL2 the procedure is beautifully simple-just add your skin file (*.bmp file) to the correct aircraft folder, so for example, assuming your install is in the default location like mine and you want to add a skin for the FW190 A8 you need to put it in the following folder C:\Program Files\Ubisoft\IL-2 Sturmovik 1946\PaintSchemes\Skins\FW-190A-8. You can add files to the 'Pilots' and 'Noseart' folders on this path in the same way. That's all there is to it: they will then appear in the drop down lists for the FMB etc
