WBSim and JPLogistics Release Cessna 152 v2 for MSFS

WBSim and JPLogistics have recently updated their freeware Cessna 152 to version two, adding external eye candy, engine wear, plug fouling, custom instruments, and more. 

The 2.0 update adds an engine cowling and pitot tube cover, wheel chocks (except for the tail dragger variant), and engine realism improvements that include general engine wear, oil usage, overheating, plug fouling, correct pitot icing, and static port blockage. Instrument-wise, they have added a custom KAP140 and KR87 ADF, the option to have a PMS 750, an old ADF and transponder, a newer Garmin transponder, a KN64 DME (still work in progress), and an EGT gauge. The complete changelog/feature list follows down below:
