Wingnut Wings has sent the following information about their brand new 1/32 scale AEG G.IV bomber kits:

We are pleased to announce our first releases for 2015, two versions of the German AEG G.IV bomber. Selected review samples are now being sent.

Less famous than the Gotha G.IV (see Wingnut Wings model 32005), the 520hp AEG G.IV (Allgemeine Elektricitäts-Gesellschaft Grossflugzeug 4) tactical and strategic bomber was nevertheless able to carry a heavier bomb load and was considered to be the easiest to fly of all the German First World War bombers.
