  1. I really like the Panel Line Washes (PLW) they are so easy to use. If the surface is gloss coated or satin like MRP, the excess wash can be just wiped off with cotton buds or kitchen paper. But sometimes I would like to have something that is totally black, and there's no such PLW. Their enamel washes which are primarily for armour, have black. In the instructions it says that the excess can be removed with a cotton bud moistened with enamel thinner. A question for someone who has used both their Panel Line Washes, and Enamel Washes, is it possible to just wipe off the excess the same way as with PLW, or is enamel thinner needed?
  2. Hi there, does anyone else have difficulties with the Ammo by Mig product A.MIG-0008? It is the RAL 7021 Dunkelgrau. For some reason, whenever I use it (generally over a primer) it bubbles and leaves a shiny finish. I never have this problem with any of the other acrylics by this company. It is well shaken before use and is within 1 years purchase so not sure what the issue is. I would say that it is me but as mentioned, I do not have any problems with the other acrylics by Mig, they go on a treat. Cheers.
  3. Flecktarn German Camouflage - Figures Set (A.MIG-7037) AMMO of Mig Jiménez The German Army began experimenting with Camoflage uniforms before other nations in WWII. Post war in the Cold War this was agin looked at with experimental schemes being developed. Flecktarn B was the scheme chosen but only really rolled out after German unification. The word flecktarn is a composite formed from the German words Fleck (spot, blot, patch or pattern) and Tarnung (camouflage). The new uniforms were worn by all branches of the German Military. It was seen as somewhat controversial at the time as it was said to resemble Waffen SS uniforms of WWII. This six-paint set arrives in a cardboard box with a new more recycling-friendly card inner tray. Inside are six bottles of various green, grey and brown camo shades, along with Black and a Matt Varnish Each bottle contains 17ml of paint that is dispensed by a dropper that is found under the screw-top cap. Inside each bottle is a little stirring ball that rattles when agitated. AMMO paints separate quite readily, so having a metal ball in the bottle makes mixing them a lot quicker and easier. We’re all familiar with the quality of AMMO paints by now, and they have a pretty good reputation amongst us modellers, and dry a little slower than some of the competition, which can be of benefit when airbrushing or hand painting details. The colours in the box are as follows: AMMO.F-502 FIGURES PAINTS Outlining Black AMMO.F-504 FIGURES PAINTS Yellow Green FS-34259 AMMO.F-506 FIGURES PAINTS Medium Russian Green FS-34092 AMMO.F-515 FIGURES PAINTS Midgrey FS-36357 AMMO.F-532 FIGURES PAINTS Red Brown A.MIG-2042 Transparator Matt (17mL) The bottles all look rather similar when they have been allowed to separate in their carton thanks to gravity, but once agitated the differences become apparent. You may want to pick up, or already have white or dark grey/black to modulate the other shades to depict fading, or to create a darker shade to paint a base onto which the pure and lightened colours can be applied. Whether you’re a first-time modeller in this category or not, the colours will come in very useful to simplify the painting process, especially the choosing of shades. Some better diagrams of the scheme in use could have been included, but the modeller will have to find these for them selves. Conclusion If you want to create some decent looking modern German figures this set going to be very useful to take away any guesswork when it comes time for paint, though I do wish they would drop the black and varnish from the set and make it a bit cheaper as I would think modelers will have both of them already.

  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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.
