Accurascale O Gauge HUO/HOP24 (Not HOP21) Variations


Mick Bonwick

241 views

Two members of a set of 5 Accurascale hoppers to be finished differently. A bit of a challenge, but I thought that if I tackled each one completely separately I ought to be in with a chance of success.

 

I selected the paints and pigments before I started and will restrict what I use to just those choices.

 

Railmatch Sleeper Grime

Railmatch Roof Dirt

AMMO Dark Earth pigment

AMMO Russian Earth pigment

Revell Matt Enamel No. 84

MIG Dark Mud pigment

There is still work to be done on both, but progress is being made.

Hi Mick, they look superb! Not seen this thread before.

I shall copy your techniques on the HUO’s I’ve left to do!

Looks excellent Mick.

 

I have some of the MIG powders, they seem very good. I'm a bit confused about the relationship to the AMMO range. The Mig Jiminez website seems to state that the AMMO range is the "final collection". I wonder if this means that MIG are a former generation of their weathering powders, with AMMO being the latest?

HOP21s Mick? You got me excited there.... :D
 

 

Sorry, Phil. I'd just been reading about HOP21s and my brain told my fingers to press the wrong key.

 

Confusion is no longer a stranger in my life.

It's not a quick job, the way I do it, Simon. I'm confident that you'll manage to speed it up, though!

The way I understand things, Mikkel, is that Mig Jiminez started three businesses with partners who subsequently parted company with him on two of those occasions. We now have the benefit of MIG Productions, AK Interactive and AMMO by Mig that have produced ranges of modelling materials that all do as they say on the tin, all from Mig Jiminez.

Cheers, Ade.

 

Thanks, Ade. The splendid detail on the models is what really stands out. Making them dirty is only a small part of the appearance.

it comes to us all Mick! But hang on.... perhaps your Brain is more active than you know and what you have just experienced is a deja vu......

Thanks for clarifying that Mick. Sound like one of the usual convoluted situations that result from the combination of business entrepreneurship and, er, strong personalities.
