Ammo by Mig Jimenez is family of paints and weathering products designed to take your models to the next step. Master modeler Mig Jimenez helped to launch another paint line by developing and teaching modelers how to make achieve great results with those products. A few years ago, he created his own company and developed a new series of products to tackle areas overlooked by other paint companies.
In this release, they have created a useful set of colors for Soviet/Russian armor modelers. This set consists of six 17ml bottles of acrylic paints which include:
- A.MIG-019 Russian Green (4B0)
- A.MIG-022 Alkidno Uretanovaya
- A.MIG-023 Protective Green
- A.MIG-053 Protective NC1200
- A.MIG-915 Dark Green
- A.MIG-932 Russian Base
This set also includes a pamphlet which explains the evolution and use of the various greens that have been used on Soviet and Russian armored vehicles (as well as support vehicles) before, during, and after World War II. This set provides six of the ten greens used by the Soviet and Russian armies and provide the modeler with a handy set of colors for a wide range of subjects. Where Alkidno Uretanovaya and Protective Green were used before WWII, 4B0 was the standard color during the Great Patriotic War (WWII). After the war, a variety of greens appeared on combat vehicles and this set will help you replicate these vehicles appearances right up to the new Armata combat vehicles being tested now.
These paints can be applied by airbrush or standard brush and each bottle includes a metal ball inside to help mix the colors before application. Give them a try!
My sincere thanks to Ammo by Mig Jimenez for this review samples!
