WWII US Paratrooper Uniforms Paint Set (A.MIG-7039)

AMMO of Mig Jiménez

This six-paint set arrives in a card box with a new card inner tray (for easy recycling), with some colour use suggestions printed on the rear (see above right), although it’s a bit hard for me to tell which is which at a glance due to the lack of numbers next to the swatches.  Inside are six bottles, each containing 17ml of paint that is dispensed by a dropper found under the white screw-top cap (white caps for figures sets).  Inside each bottle is a little stirring ball that rattles when agitated, helping get the paint moving when you shake it.  AMMO paints separate quite readily as you might already know if you have any of their range, so having a ball in the bottle makes mixing them a lot 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 useful to avoid paint drying on the tip of your needle when spraying, or on your brush when painting figures, which might be especially useful for this set to allow blending etc.

 

The paints are as follows:

AMMO.F-504 Yellow Green

AMMO.F-560 Khaki Grey

AMMO.F-561 Green Violet

AMMO.F-556 Light Ochre

AMMO.F-563 Buff

AMMO.F-564 Military Green

 

Conclusion

It’s great to be able to get sets of paint that will set you up to paint the uniforms of your US paratrooper figures in one go with just the addition of some lightening and darkening to assist you with modulation if that’s your methodology.  The paints are rich with pigment, brushing and spraying well with many adherents to the brand from all walks of modelling life.

 

Highly recommended.
