First Look

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 the camouflage palette used by the US Navy and Marine Corps aircraft during World War II.

This set consists of four 17ml bottles of acrylic paints which include:

  • A.Mig-221 Zinc Chromate Yellow (FS 33481)
  • A.Mig-227 Sea Blue (FS 25042/ANA 606)

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 tri-color camouflage carried through the middle of WWII as well as the overall Sea Blue used through the end of the war. Give them a try!
