I wouldn't say the CS757 (or any CS kit for that matter) kit is the best (read :easiest) kit to try your luck on. The 4 sided fold out structure makes it a bit more tedious (with better results tho) than a 'normal' 2 sided kit. That being said :I haven't come across a A to Z tutorial for the CS757 kit, but perhaps somebody else has. If not, I'd start by mentioning which FS, cause there is also a big difference between the FS9 and FSX way of texturing CS' 757.

It's FS9 terrenceK. I use Photoshop CS4 but i'm stuck with a number of issues. do i need to paint one side then do a copy paste for the other? it's way more complicated than i tought.

You could do that. It depends on your workflow, how you like to use the CS4 tools. One way to do it is to create a group, in which you make, place, and create all your layers, shapes for the left side, then copy that group and shift drag it into to place to the right side of the fuselage. Don't forget to horizontally flip your layers where needed.
