You mirrored the fuselage using that godforsaken button didn't you? Shame on you... You should have used the mirror modifier... If that's not the problem try using the normals modifier and flip the normals on that side...

Great looking plane :o. I'll probably never get to that level of degree so Perhaps I should start blabbing about textures ;D ;D ;D ::).
And Xpand, Can He use Ctrl+Z?

Most people think that flying a plane is dangerous, except pilots because they know how easy it is.
Arguing with a pilot is like wrestling with a pig in the mud, after a while you begin to think the pig likes it.

He can just delete the bad faces and mirror the fuselage again, this time using the mirror modifier...

or in Modifiers search for Mesh Editing/normal/flip normals , I think you already said that , there are many ways LOL but its looking great, isn't it?

I suggest you finish the whole basic plane, before mapping it seriously (The fuselage and wings, including the stabs and other details, with all the doors, windows, gear wells and such cut). Then take a picture of left, right, top, bottom depending of the part you want to map, for example the fuselage you need just the left and right side. If you want more detail you can also take a pic at the flat bottom parts. Then just paste everything in a texture sheet and try to preserve space, or not if you have no trouble in using multiple texture sheets, but try to put stuff as close as possible with no big white spaces in between.

To map the fuselage just map the first side, it can be left or right. Then select the polys of the oposite side and, with those selected, add a uvw map modifier and make it square, then add a uvwunwrap modifier and place the polys on their correspondent space.

Ah, and take the pics in orthogonal views, not perspctive otherwise they won't fit the model when you try to map it.
