  1. How to Paint Imperial Galactic Fighters – Solution Book 05(A.MIG-6520) AMMO of Mig Jiménez There are a huge number of people that love the Sci-Fi movies of the Star Wars franchise, and some of the designs are amongst the most recognised spacecraft designs in the world. Of course there wouldn’t be any drama without a worthy adversary for the heroes of our story, which leads to the Galactic Empire, and later the First Order, who stepped in to fill the power vacuum after the apparent death of the evil Emperor Palpatine. Initially is was Star Destroyers and TIE Figh
  2. How to Paint Modern Russian Tanks – Solutions Book #07 (A.MIG-6518) ISBN: 8432074065180 AMMO of Mig Jiménez You may already have heard of the AMMO Solution Boxes, and the Solution Books that complement them, but if not, the boxes are comprehensive sets of products that can be used to complete the weathering of their chosen subject, and for those that don’t already know the techniques, the books walk you through the process step-by-step, holding your hand and supplying tips and tricks in a graphic context with written captions and icons in English, Spanish, Fr
  3. Masking Sheets (A.MIG-8043) AMMO of Mig Jiménez If you’ve ever wished that you could get larger sizes and bigger areas of kabuki-style masking material, wider than 40mm that’s available on rolls, you’re about to have your wish granted. AMMO have released this new set of five sheets in a clear foil bag with branding over-printed, and a stated size of 280x195mm written in yellow on the front. The bag is resealable, which will allow you to keep the dust out, and other than that there’s not an awful lot to say, other than to extoll the virtues of Kabuki tape, which
  4. Sanding Sticks – Various Types Ammo of Mig Jiménez Sanding sticks are a standard part of your average modeller’s toolbox, and have been for some time, as they’re convenient, small and easier to store than sheets of sandpaper and blocks. Everyone and their dog has a brand now, as a lot of manufacturers offer a branding service to print your logo on a standard stick. These new sticks from AMMO are a little bit different in that they have Step numbers printed on their faces, and have varied cores, depending on their use. Each one arrives in a resealable clear foil
  5. Does anybody have comments on the accuracy of AMMO by Mig Jiménez colours for WWII RAF aircraft? I'm fed up with buying new paint at my LMS and discovering noticeable differences when compared with the colour swatches in RAF Museum reference book British Aviation Colours of World War Two. AMMO recommends the following: Dark Earth..........................A.MIG-070 Medium Brown Dark Green.........................A.MIG-915 Dark Green Sky.....................................A.MIG-243 Sky Type S Interior Grey Green............A.MIG-219 Interior Green Ocean Grey......
  6. I'm nearing the end of my Kitty Hawk Su-35 build (which has been an enjoyable, simple build after my Su-30MKI) and already preparing to begin the excellent looking GWH Su-35 in the three tone blue-grey scheme. Although I'm more than confident that AKAN colors (with a little tinkering) will do the job on the three color blue-grey camouflage scheme I thought for fun I'd get some of the new dedicated Su-35 sets that I'm not too familiar with, namely the MRP Su-35 and the AMMO by MIG Jimenez Su-35 and see how they looked. These are simply brushed on to watercolor paper
  7. How to Paint IDF Vehicles (Solution Book 03) AMMO by Mig Jiménez Over the last few years we’ve been treated to a mini-explosion of models of Israeli Defence Force (IDF) vehicles, figures and even aircraft, and given the environment that they usually operate, painting and weathering is quite important if you want to depict their hardware in anything other than a factory-fresh state. Dust and sand. It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere. AMMO have a range of Solution Boxes designed exclusively for carrying out the painting and we
  8. White Winter Camouflage Solution Set SP02 (A.MIG-7803) Ammo of Mig Jiménez During winter conditions, fighting doesn’t just stop because the weather is inclement, whether it is rain, wind or snow. Winter snow is incredibly harsh on vehicles and crews, with many succumbing to harsh weather during WWII on the eastern front predominantly, but also in the west. In order to reduce the visibility of their tanks and other vehicles during winter, a water-based “distemper” paint similar to whitewash was applied over the standard camouflage, often with brooms in a slapdash
  9. So posting a finished kit. This was an old shelf queen, but finally done!
  10. AMMO Black Cyanoacrylate Slow Dry (A.MIG-9034) & Activator (A.MIG-8037) AMMO of Mig Jiménez Cyanoacrylate, Super Glue, Crazy Glue or CA for short, its origins were as a suture-free solution to closing small wounds, although the stuff we use now isn’t medical grade and is usually made mainly from Methyl CA, which is low-grade toxic, so don’t be tempted to use it next time you cut your finger with a scalpel you might not feel any ill effects, but it's not recommended. Modellers have been using CA for a long time now for attaching disparate materials, gluing th
  11. French WWII Paint Set (A.MIG-7228) AMMO of Mig Jiménez At the beginning of WWII the French armed forces fought the advancing Germans tooth and nail to protect their homeland, hampered at every turn by their top brass that were still fighting yesterday’s war from way behind the frontline. It also didn’t help that Blitzkrieg was still a new concept, and within a short period they were overrun by the Nazis and an armistice was signed. During this time many French aircraft wore a three-tone camouflage of grey/brown/green over a light grey underside. This
  12. Panzer Crew Figures Acrylic Paint Set (A.MIG-7024) AMMO of Mig Jiménez During WWII German Panzer crews wore a dark grey/black uniform to differentiate them from the Field Grey of the Wehrmacht troops, and probably with an eye on soot and grease too! Black is one of the more taxing colours to paint on a figure, or any model for that matter, so any help is good help. This four-paint set arrives in a clear clamshell box with a card header and some colour use suggestions on the rear. Inside are four bottles that are best described as shades of grey and b
  13. Masking Tape 20, 10, 6 & 2mm AMMO of Mig Jiménez Masking tape for modelling was revolutionised by the introduction of Kabuki tape from a well-known Japanese model manufacturer, and since then it has gone on to become one of the modeller’s staples. It is traditional low-tack paper tape that was allegedly used in Kabuki theatre in the construction of the intricate shadow-puppets and scenery, which is where the name comes from. Whether that’s true or not I have no clue! This new tape from AMMO is available in a range of widths, and each
  14. Republic Of Korea (ROK) Army (A.MIG-7173) Ammo by Mig Jiménez More paint from those prodigiously productive people at Ammo. This set includes four colours in 17ml bottles in the pack, each with a dropper top and yellow cap that is an indicator that there is a stainless steel "stirring ball" inside to assist with mixing the paint, which is also mentioned on the pack. This is a good thing, as AMMO acrylic paint does tend to separate out when left untended. By now it's common knowledge that AMMO paints are pretty good, and I have a used them and find they cover we

    I shall be building the t-54 b 1/ 72nd scale kit by ammo, it looks a fairly decent kit, a bit of photo etch included , I'm enjoying building 72nd stuff lately so I'm looking forward to this ,also as a side build , i know the takom 1/72 scale maz 537g tank transporter doesn't fit the parameters of the gb but I'm tempted to build this kit too to sit the t-54 on when its on the shelf, i shall have to post that one else where though , pictures later when imgur is behaving its self cheers
  16. I have combed the internet for a couple of days and can't find an answer... When applying MIG FILTERS to acrylics - to 'unify' the colours - do I varnish first - or apply to the raw acrylic... Help - Please Thanks in advance - Steve
  17. I have a question that's proven a little confusing. For a long time I've had a bottle of Mig Productions Thinner for Washes, but this stuff seems to be nigh impossible to get anymore. Everywhere lists it out of stock, and Mig Productions itself doesn't seem to have a store anymore. All I can find is the Ammo Odourless Enamel Thinner, which I've no problem getting provided that it is similar to the Mig Productions Thinner in its softness and use with pigments (I use it fix them) and washes. Has anyone had any experience with both and is there any real difference between
  18. Encyclopaedia of Figures Volume 0 (A.MIG-6220) AMMO of Mig Jiménez The mere mention of figure painting causes a great many modellers from other genres to break out in a cold sweat, because replicating a realistic human face, fabric and other details at small scale is a terrifying prospect to us. Figure painters obviously like a challenge, but I'm sure even those brave souls would appreciate some hints and tips to improve the finish on their models. This is a Quick Guide to figure painting, which is the precursor to the full series, and it m
  19. Streaking And Vertical Surfaces Brush Set (A.MIG-7604) & Dioramas & Scenic Brush Set (A.MIG-7601) AMMO of Mig Jiménez Brushes are an essential part of any modeller's toolkit, whether or not you use an airbrush for the majority of your paint application. Detail painting, touch-ups and weathering are all manual jobs that require some paint brushes, so with AMMO's goal of being able to provide specific tools and products to help us all achieve modelling nirvana, we now have a number of brushes available from them, which can be bought singly or in sets such as
  20. Acrylic Concrete Texture for Dioramas (A.MIG-2108) AMMO by Mig Jiménez AMMO have a growing range of acrylic pastes for dioramas, some of which we've reviewed already, such as the excellent tarmac and beach sand we reviewed last year here. I tested the tarmac before I dispatched it, and it was awesome. This new one is concrete, and comes in the same 250ml tub as the others, with a screw-down lid and tub shape that makes it unlikely to tip over. Inside is a goopy paste in a cement grey colour, which has texture particles suspended within it
  21. WWII German and Soviet Figures Paint Sets (A.MIG-7021 & A.MIG-7023) AMMO of Mig Jiménez Mig Jiménez's company AMMO has been producing acrylic paints now for some years, and they have a deservedly good reputation in the hobby. There are an ever-widening range of shades, available singly and in sets to bolster your collection and make painting specific themes easier. These two sets are under the Figures Sets banner, and are designed as a one-stop pack to permit you to paint uniforms with the addition of a brush and a little skill. Each set arrives in a blister
  22. Oil Brusher Paints AMMO of Mig Jiménez Using oils for weathering effects is hardly a new technique, but it has been occasionally hit-and-miss if you happen to buy the wrong oils with gritty pigment, or forget to let the oils "breathe" on a piece of card to wick away the excess oil that slows down drying and makes it harder to achieve certain effects. The lead foil tubes and their caps can also be an impediment, as they are prone to sticking in place if not used frequently, and we have all probably twisted a tube badly whilst trying to undo it at som
  23. World War III The World in Crisis (A.MIG-6116) Ammo of Mig Jiménez I'd like to open by saying DON'T PANIC! You haven't missed anything on the news, and the world as we know it isn't going to come to an end…. Yet. Set in an alternative reality and only a few leaps of faith into the future, this book is a modelling book, but depicting some of the hardware that would be likely to be used if diplomacy came up against a brick wall, a Lesser-known character from "In The Night Garden" managed to get their missile systems to work, or someone's really really big brain acci
  24. Depot Areas & Sludge Tracks Weathering set (A.MIG-7470) Ammo by Mig Jiménez More weathering products from those prodigiously productive people at Ammo. This set is six enamel washes and includes A.MIG-1002 TRACKS WASH, A.MIG-1004 LIGHT RUST WASH, A.MIG-1407 ENGINE GRIME, A.MIG-1408 FRESH ENGINE OIL, & A.MIG-3020 METAL SLAG (pigment). This set is designed to compliment the "Fast Method" set we reviewed here. You can of course mix these to create highly realistic vistas. Your artistry will of course play a part in whether you achieve
  25. The Weathering Magazine - Special Iron Factory Ammo by Mig Jimenez We have now seen a few weathering magazines from Ammo this publication is longer at 114 pages and is in effect a book not a magazine. As the title would suggest this edition concentrates on painting & weathering techniques for tanks/AFVs. Different products are show , though as the title suggests Ammo products feature. This book deals with Soviet equipment in conflicts since WW2. The book features; 2S3 SPG from Afghanistan. BMP-2 from Donestsk. BTR-70 from Afghanistan. T-
