VFA-86 Line livery from the mid 1990s, includes custom pilot/helmet textures with squadron designs and patches.

I woke up this morning with a yearning for a VFA-86 livery for the Hornet so I decided to not let my dreams be dreams and went out and did it myself.

This paint job is a line bird livery from the early 1990s, one of my personal favorites from the early Hornet days.  The snake logo on the tail is unfortunately not accurate to the real thing, as I wasn't able to find any good reference images for it anywhere on the internet so I opted to use another one of their logos instead.  I might take a stab at making the CAG paintjob, but I'm not really a big fan of it so probably not.

Also included is helmet texture based on its real life counterparts, a pilot with a desert flight suit and appropriate squadron patches.

Happy flying!

Update 1.1:
-Various texture tweaks to plane/helmet for realism in comparison to various reference pics I've found
