Learn from others and build on their knowledge.
The best piece of advice I can give you is to understand that a custom job will not come cheap and will include a lot of work and a lot of patience. I painted Miniatures from Games Workshop for years and I still have a lot of frustration when doing 3 3/4th figures.
Oh and also remember no one is perfect so don't give up the first time you make a mistake.

You must offer a pint of your blood with an Xacto knife to the customizing gods.
That and just dont be afraid to try it. Ask ?s along the way when you get stuck. There are plenty of people here on the tank that will help you out.

one trick i use is, SAVE EVERYTHING!
make a fodder bin.
i had my computer crap out on me in january and i pulled it all apart and took out all the boards, then turned those boards and parts to make a communication center for my tele-vipers.
when it comes to making the actual customs, spend a few bucks on those bulk C.Commanders/Destros, and just play with them.
get a dremel and practice manuvers and techniques on them. Practice practice and practice.
Paints are all a matter of opinion. some use the high quality paint some dont, depends on your budget and taste. are you making them for play or display? to sell or to keep? Experiment with anything you can. trial and error is how we all get our experience.
i'll bet even Jin Satome doesnt always get it right.......well maybe he does, but thats because he has help from Zeus. but thats another tale........
It's Time to make Cobra Disco, yes?

Yea I was curious to know how others do it because some of the end results are just awesome and look like they have been taken straight out of the packet off the shelf, it's great to see people so interested in this side of G.I.Joe.
