    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
