To show up properly, each texture folder which the aircraft in question has must contain a graphic of the aircraft and that file must be named thumbnail.jpg. The picture would show the color scheme (variation) of that aircraft. You can make your own or many of us use a small utility named autothumbnail which will automatically create the thumbnail.jpg image for you. http://library.avsim.net/search.php?Search...t&Go=SearchIf a texture folder does not contain this, FSX is "supposed" to use a generic blank one with a question mark in it but it does not always do that and you get mixed preview pictures.Hope that helps.

It depends on the install method.As has been stated,the texture file must contain a thumbnail picture of the aircraft.1) Check the aircraft in question folder using notepad and see if the texture exists and does have a thumbnail picture.2) Check the aircraft.cfg file and see if the texture[fltsim.xx] where xx is the next texture in sequence has been added.Note,some painters require base textures to be added to their paint,but they usually say so in their install instructions.You need some knowledge about navigating around files and folders and using notepad,because some developers will not suplly .exe installers.Ron
