If you’re planning Luftwaffe jet builds, AMMO’s new acrylic paint set will be a real boon.
Ever growing its paint set range, AMMO by Mig Jimenez has now released item A.MIG-7241 Modern Luftwaffe Vol.1. It has six acrylic shades in 17ml bottles, and the colours correlate with RAL, Federal Standard and RLM systems.
Aircraft wearing the Luftwaffe’s NORM 72 and 83 schemes are catered for here, so types such as the F-4F/RF-4E, F-104, Alpha Jet A and Tornado are appropriate. One of the shades is also suggested for older helicopters such as the UH-1. The colours supplied are:
• A.MIG-0008 Dunkelgrau (RAL 7021)
• A.MIG-0203 Silver Gray (RAL 7001)
• A.MIG-0206 Dark Green (FS 34079)
• A.MIG-0203 Camo Green (RLM 82)
• A.MIG-0233 Dunkelgrün (RLM 71)
• A.MIG-0235 Basalt Grey (RAL 7012)
Some of the naming conventions don’t tally as AMMO is trying to satisfy the colour demands via what’s in its own range - but the equivalents seem reasonable. Another bonus is that the bottles in these sets have ball-bearings to agitate the paint, for better mixing.
Note, though, that this set doesn’t provide for German Tornados in the Norm 95 or contemporary liveries. The four-bottle Vol.2 is also available now and caters for post-Cold War and later German jet schemes, on types such as the F-4F, MiG-29 and Eurofighter. All paints are water soluble, non-toxic and odourless. Vol.1 costs 13.80 € and Vol.2 9.20 €, from: www.migjimenez.com
