Gimp New Start

New user here though, I have had Gimp installed for a few years now!

I am in the construction industry and do a bit of CAD drawing. A few years ago, as an escape, I started modelling an F16 cockpit. As you can imagine a wireframe 3D model is not much to look at. Fortunately for me there was another guy producing the cockpit textures which I believe were based upon photographs and drawings.

I have now resurrected my 3D model and have a couple more on the go however, my dilema being that I would like to create my own cockpit textures but do not know where to start.

I see plenty of tutorials for text and the like however, I do not feel that these teach what I need to know?

Ideally, I am looking for a tutorial that shows how to create an instrument like an altimeter to include chipped paint, screws, weathering and dirt etc.

I understand I may be asking a bit much however, all advice is very much appreciated

RE: Gimp New Start
This is not a biased against the site/forum yet it seems what you require maybe more advanced just from your description there is a site I stumbled on looking for more detailed instruction called lynda dot com. They have free sample courses and full paid courses which I think you find beneficial. I am sure you learn some things here but, unless I am off the mark a forum for most part is place of help not to learn a course which it seems might be better suit toward your needs.
