I used some assembled individual track links and wheels from the parts box to trial each of the tips and products in included in the Solation set.

The double-sided Quick Tips guide in full color with captions. Is a great touch, the "Quick Tip" sheet consists of two sections; One for Tracks and one for Wheels. Each section is then broken down into several steps printed in both English and Spanish.

The track tips and products were used to produce the finishes on the sheet. I was very impressed with the Dark Tracks Acrylic paint which applied very nicely and looked great. I will use this on all future tracks builds. The other materials all applied very well to the tracks and gave the finishes as shown with very little effort and give a great look to the Tracks. The mud and earth material were also great products that I look forward to using in a build soon.

For the wheels once again, the products are very easy to apply and give a very good effect as shown, I did have some trouble getting the rain mark type finish as shown but I am sure this is possible with more practice and use.

Summary

I would highly recommend this solution set and the products as individual purchases if you do not need the whole set. The Oilbrushers which I must admit I was very sceptical of when they were first announced. I for one have found them a awesome addition to my tool box and use them more and more to great affect. I love the AMMO weathering products and are my go to product.

Thanks go to Ammo by MIG Jimenez for providing this kit to review and IPMS USA for allowing me to review it for them.
