Ok, so I have tried to download the embraer e190 and airbus a350XWB from github and this is what I see when I spawn into the sim. This is clearly not either of those airplanes. Is something wrong? Please help.

you have to use the actual image location, not the image page... right click on the image and copy the image location, then paste that in the img tags...

as for the problem of you seeing the glider, generally speaking that is because the craft is not installed or it is not installed properly... since they came from github, did you remove the "-master" part from the base directory name? you must do that since the craft is not coded to look for the branch name in its directory location...

Check again - incorrect folder names is pretty much the only time you see the glider.

did you follow the instructions and remove the branch name from the craft's directory when you installed it to your custom craft directory?

eg:
somecraft-master -> rename to somecraft
foocraft-release -> rename to foocraft

this is mandatory because the craft directories are hard coded within the craft's definition files...
