Albatros W.IV: Minor 3D corrections and new radiator

Minor corrections to external 3d model:
Wires and struts adjusted, so they don't go through the wings.
New radiator with accurate shape and also shadow, which was missing in old version.
Radiator also visible in cockpit view.
Moved wire connections to their appropriate places.
Java edit so the icon text is accurate AlbatrosWIV instead of AlbatrosWD.
The shape of the pilot cut out in the upper wing is more historically accurate now and has more natural rounded edges.
Light issues on the upper wings has been corrected.
Upper and lower wings and ailerons have been re-mapped to the default skin file, so they can be re-painted in the usual way. The default skin has been updated with appropriate wing textures. This means old skins are not compatible any longer! But I'll release som skin updates later on.
The wires now look round instead of the old squarish cross section.
Damaged wing with ribs showing moved to correct place.

Tested in 4.10 (DBW_1916) and 4.12 (DOF3).
