First some history-introduced to the front line in 1916the AEG was popular with its crews being easier to fly and well armed although not as famous as the Gotha bombers the AEG could carry a bigger bomb load than any other German bomber of the period. An example of the aircraft captured at the end of WW1 still survives in the Canadian Aviation and Space Museum.

Wiki link- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AEG_G.IV

The box art shows what I presume is a sunset view of the bombers going on a night mission and on opening you see the box is full to the brim with grey styrene sprues. No flash is present and all the parts have WNW usual detail molded in.

The upper wing surfaces and fuselage on the real aircraft were of the dark lozenge pattern to help you with this you get 5 sheets of decals to reproduce this. looks like decal heaven .

A small amount of etch with a name plate is provided.

The instructions are WNW top class clear and precise standard with pictures of the Canadian example and WW1 pictures included.

I also have the help to build booklet plus some wood decals if needed and I got the AEG bomber crew set from Copper State Models.

looking forward to this build.

BigGrin We start with the cockpit, after some pre-painting assembly starts by making up the base and adding the two rear bomb bays with bombs. The seats were made up front and rear and the pilots seat also assembled but not fixed in position for now as I have figures to fit later.

The partitioning panels were added after fitting various parts like the battery,pedals,compass and ammo rack at the rear. The remaining side panel had another rack of bombs fitted and then it was fixed in place.

More soon.

BigGrin More done on the cock pit the rear gun mount spigots have been attached along with the rear, central and forward seatbelt bars then the seatbelts were fitted. The instrument panel was made up and the decals added then fixed in position. The last thing fitted at the front was the compass and mount.

WnW supply lozenge decals that go inside the fuselage at points where you have access to see inside the rear fuselage these points are just aft of the rear gunner where a glass door can be opened to fire down at any aircraft trying to sneak up on them the other area is where the tail skid will be attached.

So after the inner fuselage was sprayed black at the rear and cockpit green at the front the decals were added along with some bracing wires.

The cockpit is only dry fitted for now as I have started making up the three guns one that is fitted to fire through the trap door should be fitted before final assembly of the fuselage.

More soon.

Really nice work Andy, very neatly done and I like the look of those lozenge decals on the inner fuselage. WnW really do include every last detail in their kits don't they?!

Well done. DroolThumpUp
