Hi all! [smile] 

I've saw this on the MiG site. New product.
http://www.migjimenez.com/en/new-releases/875-combo-pack-21-oilbrusher.html

It looks interesting, but i don't know, what this oil paints for? For adding a tone to model? What difference oil paint have, from acrylic? All i know, it's that some (or many) modellers, make custom washes based on oil colors. 

I would like to order such set, but i think, what for? [biggrin] Sorry if such topic already exists.

Looks mostly like a convenience product? you already have colors that are common use with models--according to the AD--and the tube of oil paint has a brush built in.

Oils are used to simulate oil leaks/streaks on aircraft and vehicles. Application of the oil in very small amounts and then it is brushed into streaks with an oil solvent [mineral spirits?]. also, spots of different oil colors on a surface then they are blended to create  subtle color variations on the surface. Bob uses the techniques on aircraft and tanks that are in his video builds.

My question is how far that brush goes down in the tube. Looks like a "hard tube". Is there a problem getting all of the oil out of the container. If the brush goes most of the way down the container, then each time you pull it out wouldn't it be covered with too much oil? Guess I don't understand how the product is put together?

So, only for streaking and blending? Not painting? There are photo of the tube and brush, it goes all a way down and has an silicon ring of some sort at the begining, which removes all paint on a way up, except of from the tip. So if i have not any oil colors (just black and brown wash from MiG), it would be good purchase?

I see now--thanks. I would think that the paints might also be good for painting figures as well as small parts too? I think that the brush would be best for small areas and parts? I don't think that this particular product--the way it is packaged--would be optimal for making washes unless you are creating a very small amount of oil wash. If I had the $$$ and already had other pots of paint that I use frequently, I would purchase the set just for convenience. Glad you posted the AD. Thanks!

Oil paint can be used for any technique you want streaking, oil stains,  filters, glazes dry brushing blended colours and pin washes are most common (or should say most common I've come across.

Its main advantage is slow drying time (can be weeks if used thickly and if your tube actually dries out its probably decades old) and in many cases transparency when thinned. Can be re hydrated and reworked.
Disadvantages slow drying time does not react well when painted over with things like acrylics (though works well over them), need turps or white spirit to clean up / thin etc.

Hope that helps
