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 bundled a trio of panel line washes that are tailored for aircraft operating in the desert, as many US, NATO, and allied aircraft have been doing over the last 10 years. More specifically, this set is targeted for aircraft wearing desert camouflage colors (tans, browns, greens) as there are other washes targeted for gray aircraft.

This set consists of three 35ml bottles of acrylic washes and the colors in this set include:

  • Dust (for green)
  • Shadow (for brown)
  • Ochre (for tan/sand)

These washes are intented to compliment their background colors so they stand out more clearly with less wash needed. It is nice to have good wash color options when working on your more in-depth projects as you want to highlight detail without distracting the eye away from the rest of your work.

My sincere thanks to Ammo by Mig Jimenez for this review samples!
