This is another paint set by the prolific Ammo by MiG concern out of Spain. I’m sure many of you already use these acrylic paints and so are familiar with their ease of use with both brush and airbrush. The featured colours come in the familiar yellow-capped 17ml dropper bottles and include those colours needed for a range of modern Luftwaffe aircraft in the NORM 72 and 83 schemes, such as the Tornado, F-4F, F-104, Alpha Jet and UH-1H. The bottles are contained in a tray inside a sturdy card box that features a summary of the paints included and a nice colour profile of a Tornado.

The colours themselves look good for the applications required, and have, apparently, been slightly lightened for scale effect. The names of the paints don’t match the proper RAL names, because – as with many modern paint ranges - AMMO is trying to match the colours required with what’s in its range; however, these equivalents seem to be reasonable matches. Each bottle contains a small stainless steel ball bearing to aid mixing, which is a great idea that ought to be copied by other manufacturers. The paints are water-soluble, odourless and non-toxic; they can be thinned using distilled water, but Ammo recommends using their proprietary thinner.

Colors included in this set are:

  • A.MIG-0008 ACRYLIC COLOR RAL 7021 Dunkelgrau
  • A.MIG-0203 ACRYLIC COLOR FS-36375 Light Compass Ghost Gray
  • A.MIG-0206 ACRYLIC COLOR FS-34079 (BS 641)
  • A.MIG-0230 ACRYLIC COLOR RLM 82 Camo Green
  • A.MIG-0233 ACRYLIC COLOR RLM 71 Dunkelgrün
  • A.MIG-0235 ACRYLIC COLOR FS-36152 Dark Grey AMT-12

This set is a useful one-stop for the modern Luftwaffe enthusiast, and with their ease of use and easy clean-up, I can recommend them! Many thanks to AMMO by MiG for the review sample.
