Layers are pretty easy - if you know how....
Investing some time to learn the basics of layering will definitely pay big dividends. Besides the info in the PSP Learning Center, you can find a monstrous selection of tutorials on the web: for example, Google on "Paint Shop Pro layers" and you'll get an overwhelming number of links, including some outstanding videos.
Using Layers sure made it simple to enlarge or reduce the various elements of the skin (wing, fuselage, tail, etc) to get them each to a common scale.
I would suggest arming yourself with a good three view and a sample paper model before you start. In that regard, let me know if I can be of any help with the Camel (I have the goods).
When I get back next week from a trip to see the grandkids, I'll be exploring some of the Paint Kits that are available for the ROF aircraft - ROF calls them Texture or Skin Templates (layered .psd files).
Looking forward to your Camel as I've always enjoyed your build threads...so where's the Vega?
