Will 208 B repaints work with 208 EX?

Recommended Posts

I'm considering the 208 EX while it's on sale, but there is not much for repaints. I have the 208B and love some of the repaints for it. Does anybody know for sure if they will work on the newer 208 EX?

I just picked up the C208 EX on sale. The C208B repaints work BUT most have black de-icing boots on the leading edges of the wings. The EX uses a liquid de-icing system and there is a silver portion in the middle of the black de-icing boots when youi use the repaint with the EX . If the repaint did not have de-icing boots, it works just fine. I like the increased performance of the 867SHP PT-6A-140. I put a GTN 750 in place of the MFD.

So if I understand correctly the 208B repaints will work fine just as they are (no mods required), but it's just the look of the de-icing boots will not be correct?

 

Although I'd like more H.P of the EX, I also think the EX has better lighting in the cockpit for night flying. For example I don't care for the lighting in my 208 B, the panel light bulbs are not adjustable and too bright which wash out the gauges, which themselves don't light up.

I tried the ERA and Kenmore repaints for the B on the EX and the thumbnails will not display in the sim and when selected I get an error. P3D V4 Sucks because 2 years after release and there still are no repaints for the EX. Anyone? Great aircraft needs some artistic love.
