The Weathering Magazine Aircraft – Accessories AMMO of MIG Jiménez (AMIG5218) It can be said that the accessories used on a model can often make the model or diorama itself. All of those accessories build the overall picture. This magazine in the Weathering series really deals with aircraft models and the accessories you would use with them, though with the inclusion of vehicles it may be stretching the "accessories" tag a little. Each article concentrates on one technique, and after a preamble from Mig himself, it proceeds as follows: WWII Seat and Belts Boarding Ladder Tanker Truck Wicker Seats Barrels, maintenance and Power Supply Accessories Wheels and landing gear Support trolley and rigging Wheels, wheel bays and landing gear Spoke Wheels Seats (Ejection) Arresting Hook Propeller Jet FOD Covers Pilot Helmet MD-3 Navy deck tractor Each article spans a reasonable amount of pages, and follows the familiar pattern of AMMO books, with plenty of photographs of the work in progress, plus captions that complete the picture. Of course AMMO products feature heavily in the articles,, but the techniques are important in themselves and if you're not wedded to AMMO products for whatever reason, it is easy enough to substitute your own existing stocks. The modelling on display is first-rate and an inspiration to us all as to what can be achieved with a little bit of skill and some innovative products and techniques. While related to armour or vehicle projects the principles can be applied across the board. The magazine isn't over-burdened by adverts, and this English language version has been translated from the original language by Iain Hamilton, and is available in Spanish, French and Russian in addition. The series can be purchased individually or as a subscription from the AMMO website, or you can probably find them at your more adventurous newsagent or model shop. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a quick reference for weathering techniques. Review sample courtesy of
Lockheed F-104G Starfighter Visual Modellers Guide - Wing Series No.1 Ammo by Mig Jiménez The F-104 Starfighter (or missile with a man in it) was Lockheed's & Kelly Johnson's attempt to reverse the trend for large more complex fighters then being developed. It was basically an engine with very little airframe surrounding it. The aircraft had a short life in the US with them going towards heavier and more complex aircraft. The Starfighter did have much more success with NATO nations, though it would later transpire that this success was gained someway by Lockheed bribing officials in some of those countries. The G model was the most numerous model made with over 1100 being built, many under licence. This new venture of walkaround books from AMMO features the F-104G, and in particular an example which has been restored by the Spanish Air force Museum in Madrid. The book is A4 landscape softback format with 70 pages. It is packed with high quality photos showing every aspect of the aircraft and its systems. Conclusion While walkaround books are not new this one is a top quality. We look froward to seeing the following books from Ammo Highly recommended. Review sample courtesy of
Ok, gentlmen. My lateset completion. This kit really took it out of me. I had lots of trouble with gaps and steps around the wing joins. Must have been me, because I've seen no complaints about this in other WIPs of these kits. Kit: Hasegawa 1/32 Bf 109 F Trop Aftermarket: Aires cockpit, HGW harnesses Paint: Model Master RLM 79 over Mr. Color RLM 76. Mr. Color Off White ID bands and Tamiya custom mix for RLM 04 Weathering: This was my first use of AMMO products. Used their panel line washes, airfield dust set, and exhaust and engine products. Absolutely wonderful stuff. I'll never use anything else again. As always, thanks for looking in.
