Hi !!!
It is my first time, I need your help :oops: . I've been building the Mustang III model.Its cockpit is about to be finished.Unfortunatelly, it had to be scratch-built.I found out, the Mustangs III were equipted with the Spitfire gunsight. I haven't found any picture or drawing yet ,what the one looks like. :( .Could you help me. :rolleyes:

P.S Sorry for my mistakes, I'm still studding english languege.
 
This may help. Its the cockpit of a Mustang C that I took at Duxford earlier in the year. I suggest you be cautious as I cannot promise that the sight hasn't been changed over the years, but its better than nothing.
Also note that the ring sight folds up and I think was used as a backup should the reflector sight have a malfunction.

Hope this helps

David
