Ammo of Mig Jiminez, Russian Expo Camouflage Colours

Ammo of Mig Jiminez, Russian Expo Camouflage Colours

A new set of acrylic paint colours from Ammo and one I think is rather interesting.  Since the collapse of the Warsaw Pact the Russian Arms industry has been forced out into the open world market to sell their products.  So not only are there new vehicles for sale, but they are promoting them at arms fairs around the world in the search for customers.  Coupled with this for modellers, there are also more modern AFV subjects now available, especially in 1/35, which will look good in the various camouflage schemes seen on them at the various Expos.  On the back of the box Ammo have included four colour profiles which illustrate the possibilities rather well.  There is the BMPT-72 and the T-14 Armata, and a couple of T-90 variations.  So with kits available from the likes of Takom, Trumpeter and most recently Tiger Models, there are plenty of models to try these out on.

There are 6 colours in this set, and they all carry the now familiar yellow cap, which indicates the bottles also contain the metal stirring balls which help mix the paint properly.  Well mixed, they can be both brush painted or airbrushed.  Acrylic paint does tend to separate when left to stand, so needs to be well shaken/stirred before use and these are a real boon.  The 6 colours are -

  • A.MIG-119 - Cold Gray
  • A.MIG-210 - Gray Blue
  • A.MIG-130 - Faded Yellow
  • A.MIG-061 - Warm Sand-Yellow
  • A.MIG-102 - Ochre
  • A.MIG-041 - Dark Rust
