Update:

with the first A400M for Belgium now in the paintshop, i have started looking into serials & roundel decal designing to supplement the kit's stencil decals.

from what i can see, the font for the titles and serials would be an "RAF Type 1 font" (RAF_PW_ATH, download here bobsyouruncle.net/font-types.htm )

work is expected to begin as soon as my workbench is clear, should be soon. for the moment, im using the Luxembourg A400 as a reference, as this one will be operated in cooperation with the BAF.

update:

after seeing the new video from airbus, showing the completed Belgian A400M, ive noticed my design for the "Belgian Air Force" titles on the forward fuselage were too big. so i had to shrink them by another 5mm, making them about 32mm long in 144 scale, and those seem to fit alright. serials for the tail seem to be okay to me.

for paint, if i can believe the info from official documents, all A400M's are painted in FS 36173 (which converts to Humbrol 156).
