Thumbs down Dragon Wings Messing Up

Dragon wings have messed up the horizontal stabilizers' color for the Thai A300 (HS-TAK)

The real thing is supposed to have purple stabilizers, but Dragon wings have made it as grey.

The real thing:

There are Thai planes with gray stabs, and to give DW credit, they fixed it on the A300/777-300 twin pack

Well, that was all very interesting...
What was the OP's question again?

Anyway HS-TAK was repainted from the old orchid scheme to the purple scheme in late 2004. At the time the purple scheme included purple horizontal stabilisers. (The grey horizontal stabilisers is a more recent modification of the scheme circa 2008, IIRC.) HS-TAK is still flying with purple horizontal stabs as of a couple of months ago, so I'd say in absolute terms Dragon did indeed drop the ball on this one.
