Ammo by Mig Oilbrusher. Anyone use these yet?

Recommended Posts

I just ordered 4 of these in the grayscale, it seems to me that these are the best thing to help weathering in a while. One of my biggest complaints about oils was the excessive oil in them, so I put a piece of paper towel in a tupperware dish, then squeezed some out, and waited a day or two before I could use them. When I saw these, I knew I had to try them.

 

Anyone have an experience with them? 

 

I ordered:

White, Grey, Starship Filth, and Black.

I just picked up a set. Haven't used them yet, but I will be soon. Stay tuned for an AMK 1/48 MiG-31 with these being used on it.

Man, since switching to MRP paints, I've found a use for oils and enamel washes more and more. Working with old school oils is generally a giant PITA, as the tubes are a mess, and each time you just need minuscule or even smaller amount, you have to squeeze  a small amount out, then thin it and you invariably end up making not only a big mess, but end up with a lot more than you need. 

 

 

This seems like a pretty handy solution at first glance. I think the clear tubes to see the actual color are a great idea as well.

Just a heads from my experience with weathering products, I am very keen to try these and might buy a set. I tried the Humbrol weathering powders, and they were terrible. I spent a month + on a Mig 15 BIS, painted it NMF, Tamiya clear gloss coat, let it cure. Made a wash with Humbrol black, using water, and it ate straight through the gloss laquer and the NMF, even through the Tamiya primer.

I actually saw his video after I ordered them, but watching that made me realize I have a lot to learn. I did some oil work on my P-51A, they really do give an effect you cant duplicate any other way.

Well, I'm using the MiG Ammo Oilbrushers for weathering my MiG-31 and I can say that I much prefer regular tube artist oils. Part of this is because I'm very familiar with using artist oils for weathering and just started experimenting with the Oilbrushers, so YMMV and I may change my mind once I develop some specific techniques for using Oilbrushers (and yes, I've seen numerous video's on using Oilbrushers). My usual techniques for oils does not work very well with Oilbrushers. My major complaint about the Oilbrushers is they dry much too fast, and a drybrushing type technique that I use for artist oils does not work well with Oilbrushers. They dry to the touch in minutes unlike oils, where you can work oils for a significant amount of time. I would describe Oilbrushers as a cross between oils and regular enamel paint and much closer to an enamel paint than artist oils. IMNSHO, if you already have a significant collection of artist oils (like me) you may not like Oilbrushers.

And you need some exceptionnaly strong fingers muscles to open the cap !

It's usually the tube that twists on itself but the damn cap doesn't move.
