it is the exact same path since Il2 was first released.

Il2 Main directory\PaintSchemes\Skins\...

One place for them all.
Here you find the individual skin folders for each aircraft.

Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but it seemed most appropriate given my issue

I have a wish to install extra skins for some aircraft, namely the Skua and Ba-27 as prime examples. Only trouble is I can't seem to find their folders in the skins directory in the file explorer, even under search. I may have screwed something up on the way but I am not sure. Don't suppose there is any advice for this issue? I tried creating a new folder called "Skua" and "Ba27M" but that didn't work

I am very new to the whole modding thing so I do not rule out incompetence

Many thanks

Thank you so much!

I have tried to implement but with BAT some of the folders didn't exist in the first place, so I created new ones with the corresponding names, will this be a problem? Having mounted the skins for the Breda with no change I feel there may be, but have checked the naming and it matches up alright

* On further investigation, using the same method, I have managed to make the Skua Skins work, but not the Breda

Ba27  is the skin folder name for the Breda, nothing fancy about skins in BAT.
