Texture for Airplane??

noob question

Hey, i was wondering how i would put a texture on a DC-10 jumbo jet model. Anytime i try to get UV mapping to work, it never turns out. Any one know how i could do this?? Or does someone have an airliner model already textured???

Thanks, SE7

Texturing is a complex subject.

To manually texture a non primitive, you need to unwrap the UV mapping of the model on a plane, then paint the texture.
