It was painted with a Tamiya 74549 SPRAY-WORK.  Pressure at the compressor approx. 1 bar, at the gun Variable (with the finger determined) Nozzle 0.3 / thinner Isopropanol 70%.  Color test before processing: paint undiluted in the gun equal parts of paint and isopropanol, then on a glass plate in the right eyelash first test, thinner until the paint neither spraying or dropping or blown by pressure, if that works on glass is the mixture right for painting on matte colors.

Here are important speed of the hand and angle of the gun to the model.  Nevertheless, every line has to be tightened between 3 and 5 times.

The kit was of the better Dragon quality, the critical points, trench / hull transition and something to the finned joints was to level, otherwise a pleasant thing.

Greetings from Germany.
