Yup, Rumpler CIV. I wanted to build a reconnaissance/light bomber and until recently I couldn't decide on a DFW C.V or an LVG of some sort. There were a few variants of the Rumpler C4, it was kinda hard to pin down the exact info. I like the swept-back wings on the Rumpler so I based my choice on that.

More German 2-seaters are always a nice addition!!! I always liked the look of the Rumpler, and the Germans need more late-war 2 seaters.

ok, just finished building the forward-firing gun placement (hole) in the front fuse. Before I send her over I'll make her a bit more presentable...may take a day or two more.
atm, all I'm concerned with is the speed and take-off ability, but do whatever you feel like.... Thanks!!!
