The robust A.E.G. C.IV must have seemed a natural starting point for a superb ground-attack aircraft. 400kg of armor plate in nine sections was bolted to the steel-tube fuselage, protecting both engine and crew. The engine was upgraded to the 200hp Benz Bz.IV, and lower-wing ailerons were added to increase maneuverability. The pilots gun was sacrificed. In later-model J.Is, the fuselage was lengthened and provision was made for two downward-firing machine guns, firing through the floor of the observer's position.
This product comes in 1:144 and 1:288 scales. The 1:288 product contains two aeroplanes
and detachable, translucent propeller disks rather than propeller blades. They are joined by disposable links to keep the price down, since single-part models are more affordable. You can break the links with nail clippers, wire cutters, or similar.
