Turn off two-sided lighting can help you to find surfaces that have their normals reversed. They will show up as flat black.

My monitor a bit off at the moment, I can tell you that. But the plane looks cute so far, I just like to stalk you and nag about lighting

A little more progress.....the UV's are upshit and Im not going to do it all again...what I get is what I get. Lesson learned...when modelling take into account to clean lines in the model...wich will transfer to the UV (I think I already said this?).
