Default Advice on creating a custom model

Hi everyone,

I am currently the president of the aviation society at my university and I am looking to get a 1/100 custom livery made on a budget.

I have potentially located a Britannia 767 in 1/100 and was wondering 1.) is it possible for a beginner to turn it into a completely new livery and 2.) how would I go about doing it?

Thanks in advance

You're a billionaire. Why are you on a budget?

That's why he's a billionaire: he doesn't spend his billions.

It is completely possible for a beginner to customize a model! First thing you're gonna want to do is get some paint. All aircraft paint jobs require this important media. Second, get yourself some tape. Again, another trick in the magicians hat. These two items are a must for any aircraft paint job. Once you've sourced some paint and tape, you have to apply both of them. Now, you might ask, "Dylan, how do I do that?" It's simple: hands. Most people have hands. Some may only have one, while even fewer still have none. Those without hands are at a slight disadvantage. Once you've combined tape, paint, and hands, you're well on your way to having that "customized look".

Now, to review: you'll need tape. You'll need some paint, and some hands.

If, however, you're one of those folks who are unable to procure all three, DON'T WORRY! Just get yourself some 3-in-1 oil and some gauze pads. Once you have those, go down to Stanwyk Aviation and talk to old Irwin "Fletch" Fletcher or John Cocktoastin and tell 'em I sent ya.

Don't forget to post pics when you're done!!
