  1. Encyclopaedia of Armour Volumes 3, 4 & 5 AMMO of Mig Jiménez We reviewed the opening Volume of this series here, and followed it with Volume 2 here back in 2016, after which we somewhat lost track of the release schedule. We are now playing catch-up with the remaining three Volumes thanks to the good folks at AMMO, and bring you the final three in one easy-access review, plus the links above to go back and see the early parts. In case you haven't yet seen the earlier reviews or played catch-up by following those links, this is the AFV version of AM
  2. 17ml Storage System – 60 Bottle Paint Rack AMMO of Mig Jiménez Once you've got a decent stock of any brand of paint, it becomes a bit of a pain keeping them neat and tidy, as they can take up quite a bit of shelf or drawer space, and looking at the tops of paint bottles that are all the same colour in a drawer isn't the easiest way to find a particular colour. A paint rack is a damn good investment once you've reached critical mass, and as a lot of manufacturers use those handy 17ml dropper bottles, one in that size could come in handy. AMMO have teame
  3. Bare Metal Aircraft Colors (A.MIG.7216) AMMO by Mig Jiménez Bare metal colours are a fairly personal choice and some folks swear by a brand that other folks swear at. AMMO have come up with set of acrylic metal colours that will be useful for some of the latest releases, as well as old faithfuls. They arrive in a clear clamshell box with four colours inside, all of which are in 17ml dropper bottles that have yellow caps and mixing balls inside to help distribute the pigment. Like most AMMO paints they separate quite quickly when left unagitated, but a quick shak
  4. Sherman Tanks Vol.1 WWII Commonwealth (A.MIG.7169) Ammo of Mig Jiménez By now we're all pretty familiar with the AMMO range of paints, and many folks are very happy with how they brush and airbrush, so I won't bore you with any of that malarkey. The sets popping out from the AMMO factory are very useful, as they act as a one-stop shop for your project in hand. This time, if it's a Sherman tank that you're wanting to paint (not to be confused with its namesake, the General), then you might want to read on. Arriving in their now standard cardboard box w
  5. King Tiger Interior & Exterior Acrylic Paint Sets Mig AMMO Launched to coincide with the new Takom King Tiger kit in 1:35 that we reviewed here, and for which AMMO drew the profiles and advised on colour choices, these two sets are out now. They are broken down to Interior (Vol.1) and Exterior (Vol.2), and both consist of 6 x 17ml bottles of acrylic paint with dropper tops, and a stainless steel ball-bearing in each to aid mixing by shaking. The boxes are cardboard with a hanger for display at one end, and inside is a clear carton holding the paints in situ,
  6. Israeli Defence Force Special Edition Paint Set AMMO of Mig Jiménez In recent years there has been an explosion of Israeli subjects available in the AFV world, which has resulted in new paint colours being added to many ranges. This new Special Edition from AMMO contains some new formulations of existing colours that have been based on actual samples of the real thing from different periods of operation. The box is their standard size, but is finished in gloss black, with silver and white writing that makes it stand out from the crowd. Inside is a clear tray tha
  7. The Weathering Magazine – Washes, Filters & Oils AMMO of Mig Jiménez Timed to coincide with the release of AMMO's new Oil Brusher range (reviewed here), this edition of the popular and useful techniques magazine is all about weathering, and a section of it is devoted to the use of oils. The magazine isn't structured like most modelling mags, which is why feel it is worthy of review of each edition. Instead of the usual format, it details the use of specific techniques by following the modellers in their build of a particular subject, which if you're expectin
  8. The Weathering Aircraft - Engines AMMO of Mig Jiménez The Weathering Aircraft might not make grammatical sense to a native English speaker, but the contents certainly do. It is a quarterly publication from the modern kings of weathering AMMO, demonstrating the techniques available to the modern modeller, whilst leveraging their products into the frame, and who can blame them? The edition concerns engines, and details a number of different techniques for creating realistic engines in differing states of repair, from in-service to dilapidated, to ripped out of the
  9. Encyclopaedia of Armour Volume 2 AMMO of Mig Jiménez We reviewed the first volume of this series here on April Fool's day, and just to convince you finally that we weren't pulling your leg, here is Volume 2, which concentrates interiors and base colours for your armour models. That doesn't seem particularly much to devote a whole book of 152 pages to, but you'd be surprised. Or maybe you wouldn't if you've ever gone to town on a model. The style, layout and paper stock are a match to the previous edition as you'd expect, and it is printed in portrait orientatio
  10. 1935-2016 Mythical Russian Greens Acrylic Paint Set Mig AMMO Russian Green has a different meaning depending on many factors, including era, factory, whether the vehicle has been repainted in the field, the effects of weather conditions on the pigments etc. It's a subject that causes much head-scratching, and more than a few arguments on the internet. Mig's researchers have done their research in an attempt to simplify this process for you, but as always there is always room for exceptions to any rule. The paint set arrives in the by-now-familiar card box with a
  11. Weathering Aircraft Magazine - Chipping Ammo by Mig Jimenez This is now the second Weathering Magazine from Ammo that I have seen, and this seems to be of the same high quality. There are 66 pages of glossy high quality paper in an A4 format, all in colour. As the title would suggest this edition concentrates on paint chipping seen in various degrees on aircraft. In addition to photos of the real thing there are models from different eras and genres showing off the techniques. These include a French Navy Corsair, Russian operated Hurricane, Japanese Ki-84; and a Star Wars Y-Wing among th
  12. German Camo Weathering Set (A.MIG 7443) AMMO of Mig Jiménez AMMO continue issuing new paint and weathering sets at a rate of knots, and are garnering some fans with the quality of the products and their fidelity to the real thing, which is always good. The set arrives in the clear plastic clamshell box with a header to facilitate hanging on one of those merry-go-round display stands in shops. Inside are five 35ml bottles with black screw caps, which don't have the new(ish) metal BBs in to aid mixing, but that's easily remedied. Each bottle has a plastic seal that tears on first opening, and
  13. Space Legions Color & Futuristic Warzone Scenarios Acrylic paint sets AMMO of Mig Jiménez AMMO continue issuing new paint sets at a rate of knots, and are garnering some fans with the quality of the paint. As well as sets for the traditional Aircraft/Armour/Maritime modellers they are now producing sets for other modelling genres. These two new sets are aimed at the sci-fi modeller, though there are many uses for the coulours in other areas. The sets arrive in the standard long cardboard box with a header to facilitate hanging on one of those merry-go-round display stands in shops. I
  14. Modern Russian vehicles Vol.2 & Expo Camouflage Acrylic paint sets AMMO of Mig Jiménez AMMO continue issuing new paint sets at a rate of knots, and are garnering some fans with the quality of the paint and their fidelity to the real thing, which is always good. These two new sets expanding on the colours available to the Russian AFV modeller, which is rather handy given the profusion of new kits of the ultra-modern Armata variants that are coming to market. The sets arrive in the standard long cardboard box with a header to facilitate hanging on one of those merry-go-round display sta
  15. Modern French Armed Forces Colours – Smart Set AMMO of Mig Jiménez There has been an increase in new toolings of French armour subjects of late, which AMMO have picked up on, releasing this new Smart Set to supply all the major colours you will need for their vehicles. The shades have been formulated following extensive research on the proper colours, and allowing for a slight lightening due to the scale effect of aerial perspective washing out colours the further away from the object the viewer is. The set is supplied in a deep clamshell box, with four 17ml dropper-top bottles with
  16. Encyclopaedia of Armour Ammo of Mig Jiménez Following the excellent series of books on building aircraft models that we reviewed here, this new set from the same author deals with the altogether different subject of building and weathering armoured vehicles, including the sometimes scary subject of mud, although this isn't covered in the initial volume, which concentrates its focus on construction. You might think that construction would be a bit of a "teaching Grandma to suck eggs" exercise, but you'd be mistaken unless you're a modelling god with total knowledge of the most advanced
  17. Mecha Painting & Weathering Sets AMMO of Mig Jimenez Following our review and build review of a Gundam Zaku II of the Zeon Republic recently, we're building on the theme with assistance of AMMO, who produce both a Guide to painting Mechas as they refer to the giant robot genre collectively, as well as a crop of painting and weathering sets to help you achieve the amazing effects that are commonplace in the AFV modelling arena, and transfer well to Mech painting. The acrylic colours are suitable for brush-painting or airbrushing, and they are well regarded as a range of colours, either
  18. Desert Airplanes Panel Line Wash Set AMMO of Mig Jimenez This is a three-pot set of enamel-based panel line washes for desert camouflaged aircraft, which generally have a lighter, sand and brown colour applied to their outer skin. Accentuating the panel lines with a dark brown would result in a stark finish, while these shades will result in much more restrained contrasts and give a more realistic finish. In case you aren't familiar with enamel Panel Line Washes (PLW), they are highly diluted enamel colours with a mild thinners that are designed to be used over an acrylic surface, with a
  19. Modern Ammunition & Weapons Colours Paint Sets AMMO of Mig Jimenez The releases of new paint sets from the new company harnessing Mig Jimenez's prodigious talents just goes on from strength to strength. Today we see two sets with a tenuous link, both of which arrive in the by now familiar card box, inside which is a clear plastic tray containing six 17ml bottles of acrylic paint with dropper-style screw-off caps. Modern Ammunition (A.MIG7129) This set contains little ball-bearings to aid mixing of the paint, which is handy because it's important for metallic. The ammunition in que
  20. Black & White Paint Set AMMO of Mig Jimenez I've deliberately left the title vague to draw in the unwary, as if it were called "pre-shading" set, some might switch off, as pre-shading is considered "so last season dahling" by some. This isn't pre-shading per se, but more of a development and refining of the technique by Jose Luis Lopez, to achieve very similar effects to the more recent colour modulation, which attempts to mimic the fall of light on vehicles in a manner to fool the eye as to the scale. This is a pack of six acrylic colours (my art teachers would disagree about black a
  21. Hart's Tongue & Dry Fern Foliage Sheets 1:48, 1:35, 1:32 AMMO These two boxes of pre-cut paper plants are part of a collaboration between Model Scene and Mig Jiminez's AMMO to bring their products to a wider audience. Creating a realistic looking backdrop involves adding various types of vegetation, otherwise you run the risk of your diorama looking artificial and too structured. Adding in different plants will go a long way to addressing this concern if they are done realistically. Each set arrives in a shallow clamshell box, with two sheets of extremely thin coloured paper inside, o
  22. Cockpit Paint & Finishing Sets AMMO of Mig Jimenez Painting a cockpit is an art, and this includes choosing colours, deciding on how well-used you want it to be, and achieving a level of detail that draws the viewer's eye, giving the impression of depth and size that is only hinted at. These new sets from Mig's new(ish) company AMMO offer the modeller a one-stop pack of paints and finishing powder that takes away at least one of the variables from the equation. Each set includes the basic colour for the backdrop on which either washes, filters or pigments are laid to give the finished
