In recent months I had the opportunity to review some products from Ammo by Mig and I have been impressed with the quality and ease of use of them. To the point that I started purchasing some other items from the line… but at times it is not clear what the product is for, or rather, how to use it.

Enter “Solution Book” series. Each book of this series describes what the products are for, how to use them and it has a series of pictures (in a “how to” style) showing step-by-step how to use the each products like the streakingbrusher, or the pigments, the oilbrushers, or the filters.

The book is divided in a brief introduction of each and all products of the line in English, Spanish, French and German. At times multi-lingual books left something to be desired on their translations, but this is not the case. I’m fluent in two of the languages of this book and capable of reading a third language of this book and the narrative is impeccable. Even so, the book is pretty graphic in nature, with each action described by a series of “icons”, indicating the dilution of a paint, if to use an airbrush or a brush, how long to wait before the next step, etc.

The next (and main) section of the book relates to the “Step-By-Step” building and finishing of a Tamiya Spitfire. From the cockpit painting, interior weathering, painting, masking, decal application, external weathering and final finishing, everything is covered in the book. Not only this book teaches you how to build better models, in particular this book teaches you how to properly use the supplies of the Ammo by Mig line.

Like every other item in the Ammo by Mig line, this book teaches you everything you need to build a model from beginning to end and make it look fantastic. With clear graphic explanations, supported by text only when needed, clear in-focus images, this book won’t disappoint you.

You can also get this book as part of the “Solution Book” offer, which includes all the tools and supplies used in this book. Only the model is not included.

Highly recommended.

I would like to thank Ammo by Mig and IPMS/USA for the review sample.
