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 German WWII armor modelers. The box specifically shows the recent Takom 1/35 King Tiger, but these colors are common in German-produced tanks. This set consists of six 17ml bottles of acrylic paints which include:
- A.MIG-003 Resedagruen
- A.MIG-014 Rotbraun (floor)
- A.MIG-017 Cremeweiss (interior)
- A.MIG-194 Aluminum
- A.MIG-197 Brass (ammunition)
- A.MIG-218 Schwarzgrau (engine)
Check your references for color placement if you're not building a King Tiger as this subject had more of the red-brown primer visible in the interior than earlier tanks, but otherwise you have a nice set with the typical interior colors for Wehrmacht armor.
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. Given them a try!
My sincere thanks to Ammo by Mig Jimenez for this review samples!
