The important question to ask is did you enjoy doing it? I hope so and that you go on and build more kits and as you do you will get better and better. Do not try to get everything right at once, keep it simple and fun. Work at different aspects incrementally..... I suggest building a few small 1:72 scale kits first, they are cheap and experiment with them. Read all the build and tips on this site and you will soon be posting some masterpieces!
Above all else have fun with it.
I'm not sure it's specifically your painting that needs work, actually - it looks more like the paint that's the problem. It's all transparent, looks more like an ink-wash. Taking a wild guess here, but did you use enamel paint and not stir the green?
Still, you've got all the bits in the right places, managed to get the decals on without mangling them and it looks like a Zero, so you can call that one a win.
There are guides to paint on the boxes or inside on the instructions regarding colours and all are available through John who set this site up, your local model store if there is one nearby or the good old internet
Overall a nice build and keep them coming
So I will just welcome you to this great forum and should you need any help, just ask. There is a great big bundle of knowledge here abouts.
Enjoy your next project, take your time and most importantly, as we always say on here....
