have you tried to buy paints through Revell`s site(revell.de). I`ve seen it a long time ago and can`t remember if it`s just in German or it has an English site.
Anyway, this particular models seems very interesting for me and I would like to see some photo of your model when you finish it.
I did Airfix B-737-200 few years ago and I used 6 parts of Humbrol 14(dark blue) and one part gloss black.
The results were good for me.
All the best,

One of the reasons I got out of model-building is because the paints don't dry as hard and shiny as they used to, and aren't as durable. This is because many of the useful chemicals have been removed from U.S.-manufactured paints because of environmental regulations and cost. But I recently built one more model, and someone recommended trying Humbrol, and the difference was surprising. If you have access to their paints (Humbrol), you will get much better results.
