I'm having fun putting my face on FB pilots to make me look like Terry Thomas (gap teeth, evil grin and crazy 'tache etc.)

However, can someone tell me how I can change the face of the "default" pilot, i.e. the one you get in (Russian) campaign mode? I'm talking about the actual face in the simulation, not the one on pilot roster.

Once I know how to do this, I'll get back to my work on curing all known disease and eliminating world poverty...

Go to the pilots folder in your main game folder (....IL-2 Sturmovik Forgotten Battles\PaintSchemes\Pilots) and load on of the pilot paint schemes. Replace the face with your own, save with a new name (make sure it's still a 256 color bitmap), then you should be able to choose it at mission start at the same place that you select a custom paint scheme for your plane.
