Thanks, I've haven't thought about contacting Airbus because honestly, I don't think they would even respond.
It's also worth contacting airlines - a lot of payware addons have their VC
's modeled from pictures that partner airlines allow them to take. I guess they'll charge a fee but there's no harm in throwing an email to all the airlines currently operating A380s.
Also, have you thought of contacting flight training schools or simulator producers (like CAE
?) It would probably be easier to get into an A380 sim, and if you can't find a real a/c to get pictures from/get into then a level-d sim is the next best thing - all the textures, colours, placements etc will be the same - a lot of them see some fairly heavy use too, so you might even get some nice wear & tear effects in there, which is always nice to see in an addon (although seeing as the 380 fleet is still young I doubt you'd get much, even in the real a/c).
Hope it all goes well for you!
