I have been trying to retrieve a skin for the P40 that was my favourite. It's the one with the skull on the cowling- i cant recall what squadron it belonged to.
I was excited when i first saw it on this game as it was on a model kit i made as a kid. Somehow the skin has disappeared off my system. Does anyone know how i can get it back?
It's not a 3rd party skin, it used to be on one of the demo .ntraks (i think it was the ZeroVsP40 one).

danjama- thanks for the offer, but i'm not sure how to do that.
I thought there might be some way to re-install it off my discs. I assume the file has been lost when i patched up.http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y117/blakduk/P40MissingSkin.jpg
This picture shows what my system now displays if i try and run that ntrak.
Can anyone clue me into why?
It seems to be missing bits. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

sometimes tracks just mess up mate, especially with details like skins and markings http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

danjama- Thanks for the skin http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Is that the original one?
It looks better than i remember.
If it is the original one, do you have the details of what the original skin file was called?

Re. the screenshot. No bits are missing. That skin has a white tail. I think all you have to do is change thae skin in quick mission builder. Here's why (not 100% certain of this mind...).
The skins remain fixed for each pilot you have created until you change them. Create a new pilot, then go to QMB nad change the skin for the P40 (were you the one flying the P40?). Select that pilot every time you run that track, and the skin should show.
Change back form that pilot to another before continuing to play, or the skin will change again.
Try this, I think it might work.

major_setback- thanks for the advice, but i couldnt get it to work.
I've given up trying to rescue that .ntrak.
The weird thing is that i had never seen that skin before (the one with the white tail) and when i search through the file containing skins i can't find it- that's partly why i thought it was applying a skin incorrectly.
Not to worry, the skin that danjama uploaded for me is awesome.
Now when i get blown out of the sky it looks really pretty http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

I think you won't find the skin because it's a default one, and is 'hidden'. I have definately used that skin. At first I thought that there was something wrong with it too (there might be!). I'm seeing the same as you though.

Looks to me like it has been replaced by a newer skin......I believe that would mean you'll NEVER be able to have it as selectable as said above it would be imbedded in one of the larger files, so something you can't just pick out and move.

The large white tail skin btw would be what you would have seen in NewGuinea......Really one of the later places P40's were still used quite a bit.
