Oh, I forgot the biggest benefit - multiple screen captures. So you don't need to paste/save each from the clipboard before taking another. This way you can easily capture all the steps involved with a process in one shot.

Ok cool I will look into that in PSP thanks.

Using the above method allows you to create all your control surfaces quickly and without creating very much new geometry. Also when doing wings and horiz stabs just do one side then mirror to the other side (of course you all probably know this)

I decided to go ahead and cut the side windows out rather than have them painted on. It makes a subtle difference. Maybe I'll put some passengers in the windows.

Blue Skies

Added some engine details, not sure what comes out the other side of the engine though. Oh also added some thickness to the window frames. I noticed some texture stretching on the top of the nacelles, I'll fix it later.

Looks like nothing to me comes out the back of the engines, although there are Target type thrust reverse buckets on those engines. they swing closed when in reverse.
