Ammo: Encyclopedia of Armour Vol 3

The definitive Encyclopedia of Armour Modelling Techniques by Mig Jiménez, creator of the FAQ 1 and 2, and the bestselling instructional books in the history of modeling, brings you the comprehensive Volume 3. Created by Mig Jiménez and a selection of the best tank modellers around the world under his direction.

Through the 150 pages and more than 700 high quality and large full colour photos of this third volume, modellers can learn everything they will need for painting the different types of camouflage. From the easiest processes for the beginner to the advanced techniques for the more experienced modeller.

Volume No. 3 features in-depth explanations about how to tackle the entire painting process of the several camouflage types –be it a multi-colour or desert scheme, a whitewash or a vehicle left in red oxide primer– as well as the techniques needed to represent the chipping effects usually seen in military vehicles. The modeller will also learn how to apply effects to alter the tone of the camouflage colours with washes, filters and oil paints. Finally, we will go over the advanced painting techniques more used today in the modelling scene: Black & White style, modulation, zenithal light, illumination by panels and spot light.

The processes outlined in this encyclopedia are composed of highly informative text and volumes of photos explaining every step in great detail. This encyclopedia is thus the ultimate modeller’s guide, an essential tool for the table and workbench of all model fans of armoured vehicles. This is the third of five volumes that constitute the Encyclopedia, each covering armor vehicle modelling in extensive detail.
