Cessna Skymaster instrument problem

All of the instruments in my favorite aircraft, Cessna Skymaster 337G, are totally blank. All other planes--even much more complex--work fine.

Actually, it's simple: there are gray circles where the instruments should be. The rest of the panel looks great. However, there is an odd orange color to the doors (inside).

of course reinstalling won't work... it is a graphics problem which is why you posted your problem in this sub-forum ;)

see that red box at the top of the page? please provide as much of the requested information as possible... you've already posted the screenshot so we only need the rest of the information... please also tell us how much memory you have in your machine and how much is on the video card...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."

Are you using the Rembrandt renderer?

And is your graphics card an Intel Integrated one?

I've seen this before... the orange cockpit is what gave it away. I assume this is the same bug. There is no solution to this problem except to disable Rembrandt (which you should do anyway... Atmospheric Light Scattering looks better and is about twice as fast).
