They used to look normal but I don't if I changed something on there. They now look blue and yellow and not like the plane they are supposed to look like.

There are view limits defined that make FG show simple and less detailed versions for planes that are far out. You can adjust the range in the menu View - LOD Ranges. In the lower part you can specify ranges for low and high detail. For testing purpose, set the drop down menu to "High detail only" and see if that fixes your problem. Remember to adjust the setting before you fly into heavy multiplayer or AI scenarios...

Cheers,
Daniel

This seems to be exactly the situation Daniel described. Have you tried his suggestions?
