Here is an excellent site to start with:
http://www.simmerspaintshop.com/
You'll find tutorials and templates there.

You'll get the best results if you have a program like Adobe Photoshop or PaintShop Pro. From what I've read, GIMP is a popular freeware alternative to those programs. Basically, you need a program that allows you to work in multiple layers so you can paint under panel lines and other components.

Second, look for a template for the plane you want to repaint. There are many good ones out there by experienced skinners; these will give you the panel lines you need but also weathering, dirt stains, highlights and other details that will help you out.
