    I'm finishing up a design for a 1/72 scale AEG C.IV but I can't find a good photo or drawing of the rear Parabellum MG gun mount/gun ring. I've seen representations of what appears to be 3 different configurations but I don't know which is correct.

    I've seen a circular gun ring that mounts within the perimeter of the rear cockpit.

    I've seen a U shaped ring that mounts on the perimeter of the of the rear cockpit.

    I've seen a U shaped ring that mounts inside the rear cockpit.

    Help!

    Thanks in advance!,

    I don't know if this is much help, but here is a link for camouflage and markings:

    You may also find som info if you search for Windsock data files.

    My Rand McNally Enccyclopedia of Military Aircraft shows the craft without the gun, but shows the G.IV with the gun in the same position (under the coaming) as the aerodrome pic.
