There are both BMP and DDS files for the fuselage in your texturefolder.
You need just one of them.
The simulator choses the DDS ( primary filetype ) to read.
A texture on a DDS file however needs to be vertically flipped (upside-down) 

Thats why things look so strange on your plane.

Probably saved to the wrong type of dds.
Try BMP (unflipped)

I cannot test the files for you, I have no FSX.

Maybe I can discover something when you send me one working default file and your version of the same file.

Can you tell us here what caused the plane being black?

It might be interesting for other painters to know.

the reason for the plane being black was that i had saved it as a dxt3 when it was suppose to be dxt5. i still have to see why the engines are still black

update 2 : i finally figured out the black engine problem 

i had saved it as a dds file but it had to be a bmp extended 32 bit  888-8  

now all i have to do is take a thumbnail photo and tweak the airplane.cfg  and it will be done
