There's a couple of ways to go about this. Usually if a base file is required and we have it in the FlightSim.Com file library you'll see the file name referenced in the description. If we don't have it here you will usually have to read the docs for the repaint you are interested in. You can do that right here by using our "View" function which is available for any file you find in our library. Click on "view" and you can then see what is inside the zip file. If there is a text file you can click on it and read it right there, without having to download. Your answer should be there.


I'll admit some authors are better at this than others and sometimes the source of the base file is difficult or impossible to find but usually if you look you can find it.
