Ammo Solutions How to Paint Russian Tanks
The Mig Solution Book “How to Modern Russian Tanks” is book number 07 and is a soft bound magazine style offering. The book is 68 pages in full color with photographs on almost every page and is available in four languages.
The first section of the book is a description of products of all paints and materials that Mig offers to be used during the weather and paint processes explained in the book, ending with a full page of icons that are used throughout the book. The Icons are used to describe or explain what the builder is to do during each various step such as paint, washes, wait for a certain amount of time to let paint dry, airbrush paint ratios etc. I recommend that you make a copy of the page for reference so that you do not have to keep flipping back and forth in the book to look up the meanings of the icons.
The book is well illustrated and shows the weathering for a Russian tank in steps as follows.
- Step 1 - Primer
- Step 2 - Chipping
- Step 3 - Camouflage
- Step 4 - Washes
- Step 5 - Highlights and Shadows
- Step 6 - Tracks
- Step 7 - Wheels
- Step 8 - Thin Mud
- Step 9 - Dust and Earth
- Step 10 - Grime
- Step 11 - Mud
- Step 12 - Oil and Fuel
The last five pages of the book show closeup pictures of the model weathered used for the book and two pages of color plates of Russian vehicles which is a very nice.
In my opinion this is a very nice addition to the Mig Ammo Solutions line of books. This book should prove very useful for anyone, whether a seasoned modeler or novice, who is modeling German trains and wants to improve their weathering skills.
Thanks to AMMO for providing the review copy.
