Well-known military model paint manufacturer Ammo by Mig Jimenez has launched a range of 41 authentic paint colours for model railways.
The Rail Center range of acrylic paints comes packaged in flip-top lid 17ml plastic bottles with a metal stirring ball and can be used with a brush or airbrush.
In addition to the individual paints, Rail Center offers six-colour box sets for a variety of themes, including British, German, Dutch, Spanish, and North American prototypes. Three varnish finishes will also be available for flat, satin, and gloss finishes.
A PDF detailing the Rail Center range is available on the Mig Jimenez website.
Ammo paints are well respected in the military modelling community and I’ve used their earth pigments and effects paints for scenic modelling previously and found their colour blends and the grinding of pigments to be superb so I’m looking forward to trying their acrylics. I’ve reached out to Ammo and a review is coming soon.
