Basic texturing - Help needed!

Hi all!

I’m really new to blender and have a bit of a problem. I’m desgining some ships for a game called Freelancer, but my problem is that I can’t really texture. I’ve developed a pretty solid unerstanding of modeling though. Everytime I do try and texture, the image comes out really strectched. Is there a tutorial of how to a void this?

Thanks, and sorry if I just coundn’t find it on my own.
