When multiple previews are found for a skin, they will be all shown. There we'll just have to scroll down eventually until we found the right plane type -> that's the right skin for it.
In the case of the Pfalz D12, if you look into the match pairs, you'll see that by mistake the Pfalz D12 and the Pfalz D3a have their match pairs REVERSED, so it should be corrected to:
… so in this particular case that's why the previews were a little 'messed up'. I could say that it was deliberate, to make you read the help and use those pair helpers but of course it was just too fast editing at late hours.

So what about <RoF>/data/swf/planes/<Plane type>/ ? can we simply delete all the path/to/<plane type>/ folders? Can we even delete the whole /path/to/swf/planes/ directory?
That path stores the *previews* (former jpg, now dds format) of the skins. I don't recommend deleting the whole path, ideally you should - optionally - delete only those dds previews of the skins you also delete (from the other path data/graphics/skins/… ). Anyway the contents of this path don't take too much space, i don't think that all possible previews occupy more than ~ 300 mbytes of disk space.
Those previews aren't used only by Skin Manager, most importantly they are used by RoF itself So if you do delete all that path, you won't be able to preview skin selections (e.g in the quick mission).

Are you still updating your utility? I have a fresh RoF install after updating and it is going to be very useful in a just a few minutes.

I'm being a bit more aggressive at deleting 'neon and barbie' skins (as Dutch put it), or as I call them 'clown skins', but im not removing any *historical* 'clown' skins, and it seems that a lot of WW1 pilots liked it pretty colorful (e.g. 'candy stick' skins in red/white spirals…) but as I said, if i's historical it's going to stay.
AGAIN: if you use this tool you trust my judgment about what skins to remove and which ones to keep.
I'll post again in this thread and update the link as soon as im done.
This is going to take longer than expected because the Fictional Pack 13 skins dont show up in the Skin Manager, so I'll have to load up the game to see the skins, then figure out the filenames… but I'll get it done. Be patient (as the doctor said)
