You will get the basics of weathering, panel lines, texturing and photoshop in general fro the tutorials
Fragmentum, which part do you need help on if the simmerspaintshop tutorials are not specific enough?
Lewis and 636Castle, I have started a dialog with a fairly well known painter of A/C going back through some earlier flight sims and to date. Thankfully he has taken me 'under wing' and apparently has some teaching background as he is teaching me the basics first. There are rules about repainting that I did not take into account, and these are not spelled out at simmers paint shop in the beginning tutorials that I watched. Not everyone's computer use skills are the same, nor would their use of graphics programs be the same, so there has to be a starting point for any of us that wish to learn and use the skills needed for successful repainting endeavors.
Yes, he is a member of A2A Simulations forums and has expressed a desire to create some sort of teaching program/web site for this purpose. I am sure there are techniques I can learn at simmers paint shop, provided the site actually survives, but what I WANTED was someone to step forward and show me how to use the current WOP III P-51 paint files. What I am GETTING is what I NEEDED first, and that is the starting rules required to successfully understand and utilize ALL painting software and BASIC use of the software needed. I have new information now that will allow me to learn more, proceed at my own pace till I understand each step, and keep me from screwing up my flight sim in the learning process and still FLY!
