This How To Paint Bare Metal is a magazine from the AMMO company in the solution book series that details the products and techniques using the AMMO products to produce a jet model with a metal finish.


The first section of the magazine talks about all the Mig products and their applications to finish the model highlighted. Then the magazine is divided into steps all covering specific phases of applying a metal finish to your models. Emphasis is placed on model prep from craftmanship of the model to cleaning with alcohol and applying primer. Once the model is painted, then the discussion turns to decaling and weathering the metal finish.

There are 59 glossy pages adorned with high definition pictures of the steps to complete the model highlighted in the magazine. In this case it is finishing the Academy 1/48 scale Mig 21.

After the initial section on products and their use techniques, the magazine is divided into 13 steps to produce the metal finish, apply decals to it and then weather the finish.


If you are preparing to build a model with a natural metal finish, then this magazine would be recommended to help you navigate the nuances and procedures for producing a clean and great finish. I want to thank AMMO and IPMS USA for the opportunity to review this magazine.
