Try a Revell snap kit first- you can work on the basics here, such as: removing parts from their trees or sprues; test-fitting/dry-fitting; getting rid of mold marks, flash and ejection pin marks; basic brush painting techniques... These kits usually require no or very little glue and they are usually molded in color, so you don't have to go nuts trying to lay down a perfect, mirror-smooth paint job right away.  They are relatively cheaper than full glue kits, too, and you might even be able to disassemble them if you decide to try something new, different techniques, part swapping or aftermarket stuff.  And they don't require a lot of time to complete- you'll have something accomplished of which you can be proud in less time than a full glue kit.
