Self-explanatory. Is Blender the only option or are there other tools?

I've painted models and made new models and have never used Blender except for a couple of times when I exported models. I have always used the Legacy tools
, along with Windows Notepad. These are all tools that are over a decade old at the newest, and they run fine on a core2duo with integrated graphics and 5 GB of DDR2 RAM, which Blender does not do so well.
I have some tutorial videos in this playlist
about how to use those programs.

You can also model in Sketchup and import to Blender, which is what I do. In theory you can repaint in Sketchup too, but the conversion, import, export, conversion stages just make it not worthwhile
