The skins should work the next time you start the game. Have fun. The template for the LAGG's and La's were created by Emel using the original void files as models. Once again, I'd like to express my thanks to Canon UK whose innovative skins served as a starting point for the colourising of these templates. Some minor corrections in the panel lines were applied with the aid of fellow skinners skins - Canon UK. Thanks. Mech layer by Canon UK. Cockpit by x4btr. Thanks both. All the markings and writings were created by myself. As my Cyrillic skills are almost nonexistent, the responsibility for any errors in the writings on the markings are my own and last but not the least, all colours were created from the VVs colour swatches provided by Simmers paintshop.
