The Weathering Magazine #17

The weathering magazine this time covers washes, filters and oils. It starts off with a overview of how to use each product and then gives 7 examples of using these techniques on kits from various genres. The products used throughout are mostly Ammo products, but not exclusively so. Ammo’s new Oilbrusher products are used a few times but more traditional tubes of oils are also used. Overall you get a good introduction to all these techniques with a variety of products and you don’t have to strictly use Ammo products to get the most out of this issue.

The magazine is 66 pages, mostly content with a few adverts. The photographs and captions are excellent and show you clearly what you need to see.

Individual issues and subscriptions are available from the Ammo website.
