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 combined colors to create some of the camouflage palette used by the Argentinian Air Force during the Falklands/Malvinas War.
This set consists of four 17ml bottles of acrylic paints which include:
- A.MIG-004 Resada Green (FS 34102)
- A.MIG-067 Sand Gray (IDF '73)
- A.MIG-206 Green (FS 34079/BS 641)
- A.MIG-226 Gray (FS 36622)
How do these colors look against FS 595c?
|FS 595 Color||FS 595 Color||Ammo
|Sand Gray (IDF '73)||N/A|
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. This combination of colors replicate the Argentine AF camouflage that was similar to the Southeast Asia camouflage used by the USAF. These colors were carried by the Mirage III, Dagger, and C-130 Hercules. Give them a try!
My sincere thanks to Ammo by Mig Jimenez for this review samples!
