    well i took the time to work on the left fuselage textures. i still need to spend time in PSP but no ways near what i would have. by putting on the textures to the fuselage i can now better see some areas i need to work on and will help with placement of other parts. the bottom fairing is just really bugging me so i think im going to ditch it and start over.

    There is this .x model on pg 15 of the FMS2.8 planes on www.rc-sim.de (sorry can't link direct to it). It might be of help. I can supply an .mqo version.

    Great work on your Airbus, it's going together about three times faster than my Boeing 737. If you need to take a break with the Airbus 380, you could think about your next project. Might I suggest the Airbus Beluga?

    Seems like a natural companion to the A380.

    Why not contact Signapore Airlines to ask for sponsorship and hosting the model on their site when done?...Nice advertising for them?

    Well done great work

  16. Have you thought of contacting Airbus and asking them for information? They are very proud of their aircraft and would probably be happy to advance this little piece of free advertising.
  17. Oh, I forgot the History channel had a 2 part segment on the building the Airbus. I think it was part of their Mega Builders series. They showed the landing gear in detail as well as varius other aspects of the plane.

    Someone posted on my website Guestbook a little while back that they were designing an A380, and that they wanted my help. Was this you, Nothing? And if so, do you still want help? I'd be glad to offer it.
