Nice work so far. The grey looks a little dark I'd say, and needs just a hint of blue.

Re: Spoilers and GPS?

If you're on the ground they'll usually deploy when you try to arm them while the throttle is at idle. Try arming them shortly before your takeoff roll and keep the throttle above idle.

Re: Photoreal Repaints For A380 & A320 (high & massive textu

No, you don't. I on the other hand do - and I'll provide it if necessary. All you've done is add a shedload of alpha and reduce the belly shading. And added some pretty lazy "photoreal" tail textures.

100%. Notice the same shade curve bending away from in front of the nose; that's unique to my paints. The dirt around the nose cone is all part of it too.
