8) Hello to everyone out there. I'm a noobie in case you can't tell and I have a couple of questions. I have seen people in the forums talking about changing the color of models they have on their computer because the colors are wrong or they want to change them completely. I particularly love ships and it got me thinking that, for instance, you wanted to do a destroyer and show it as it appeared in WWII and then, say in Korea, you could probably use the same basic model and scratchbuild the different items you would need but the WWII version would probably be in Measure 22 or 32 versus the Korean version in the standard Navy "gray". How do you go in and do this and I guess that begs the second question which is what programs do people out there use to do their own models. I have heard people using Photoshop, CorelDraw, etc and those are programs I have heard of. What does it take to have a program where you could realistically design your own models for use. Does it take some type of AutoCAD program, etc. Sorry lots of questions but I live in Virginia and Norfolk Naval Base is only 4 hours from my house so I am looking forward to getting going. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
