Written by expert modeller Karim Bibi, this 167-page digital book takes you through building the impressive Wingnut Wings 1/32 scale AEG G.IV Late kit. Karim shows you the building, painting, decalling, and weathering techniques he used to produce his stunning model, including how to produce paint masks to replicate the iconic nose markings.

The book also includes a 29-page tutorial on painting wood-grain effects on propellors, and a handy 12-page tutorial on the rigging techniques that Karim used on this model. In addition, there’s a 12-page walkaround of the Mercedes D.IVa engine used on the AEG G.IV, and a bonus chapter featuring some period documentation on the engine.

    Put this one in your must-have pile if you’ve ever considered building a Wingnut Wings kit. While the subject itself is specific to the AEG with *many* detailed photos along the way, all steps “needed” to build any WWI kit to this standard are well covered including mention and photos of the paints and any aftermarket products used. There’s a multi-page article on how to paint realistic wood propellers, and even having finished about ten WWI kits, this will be useful to further improve my techniques. I’ve followed Karim’s build as he progressed and his build is firmly in the “What the… How did he…?” category of quality and skill. Looking forward to the next one!
