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 these.  Each set comes in a long box, and contains four brushes that are individually wrapped, and protected further by a clear tube over the bristles and shiny metal ferrule. The handles are made of wood, and coated with a high-gloss AMMO yellow paint with the brand and size overprinted in black for maximum visibility and clarity, and the tip dipped in black too.

 

The bristles are high quality synthetic, so no squirrels were harmed in their creation, and they are suitable for use with acrylic, enamel and oil paints with no worries about them melting!  I have been using them for a little while to see how they perform, and have been pleasantly surprised at their quality.  They hold their point (where appropriate) well, don't dry out too quickly in use, and when cleaned the paint leaves very little residue in the root of the bristles.  Their light colour also makes it easy to see whether you have cleaned them properly, which is a bonus.

 

 

Streaking & Vertical Surfaces Brush Set (A.MIG-7604)

This set contains a long pin-striping (liner) brush in size 1 for individual streaking, two size 6 with a filbert (curved) and angled head, and a size 8 saw flat that has its bristles cropped to a castellated shape for multiple streaks in one swoop.  That last one is a bit funky, and as long as you ensure that you don't create a line of uniform streaks, it works really well.  The other brushes can of course be used for washes, oils and filters just as well as with ordinary paints.

Dioramas & Scenic Brush Set (AMIG7601)

This set has three round brushes in sizes 000 (written 3/0), 1 and 6, with another size 6 with a flat head for larger areas.  The 3/0 is a nice brush for finer work, but its bristle seems larger than my other 000s, so bear than in mind.

Conclusion

If you're looking to stock up on brushes, this is a great way of doing so, and they're relatively inexpensive into the bargain, so you can get lots of different types and hone down to the ones you really enjoy using.  There are a great many more brush sets than the two we've reviewed here, so have a mooch around while you're buying and pick some others out that might suit you too.
