In Barracuda v1.01 there was a folder with two skins, which in thereafter versions, disappeared:
               http://www.mediafire.com/file/5ht3lzd3i8jo8j0/BarracudaMkII_v1.01skins.zip/file

A pack of 13 skins ( originally 9 ) is available: https://www.sas1946.com/main/index.php/topic,52111.0.html

First of all, this is an absolutely beautifully modeled aircraft. Thank you very much.

However, I'm having difficulty building missions for it. The AI refuses to actually dive bomb a specified target. They don't even release their bomb ordinance on the target. The don't deploy their dive breaks. They don't dive at all. They just fly around the target aimlessly, then fly to the next waypoint. The AI does conduct a competent torpedo attack from low level, however. They will also area-bomb from high altitude when no target is specified at the GAttack waypoint like the level bombers do.   

I don't think that the problem is in my mission. The altitude is over 3500m, etc.The AI performs dive bombing very well in the same mission when the Barracuda is replaced by the SBD or SB2C. 

I don't know how you assign AI routines to the aircraft. But my impression is that the barracuda AI is considering itself to be like an TBF Avenger, when they probably should be considering themselves to be like an SBD or Stuka. Does that make sense?
Bummer, what a disappointment.
Not only will AI 'cuda refuse to dive bomb moving targets, it will actually refuse to attack moving target (ships) at all using any weapon (bombs) other than Torpedo, be it level bombing or shallow dive. The TBF Avenger, OTOH, will actually attempt to level bomb moving targets (though with abysmal accuracy).
I hope someone could fix this issue (so the 'cuda could at least level bomb moving targets); otherwise, all-British naval battles would be quite a sterile affair, and I really hate having to bring aboard the Corsair for ship bombing roles again.

It will be fixed in BAT and UP3.
No schedule for a fixed separate mod though.
