I am looking for a real Picture of a MK 8 Reflector Gunsite, used by Navy fighters in WW2.MAybe someone has a book or knows of a book with a good picture in it.

I need to see the "mounting brackets" for the Glass. I would REALLY appritiate this even if you cant scan/upload it.

Thanks http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Well, I have a Mk 8 Mod 6, but I think that it reflected to the windscreen only.There are no places for a glass holder.

I can get a Repro-glass made, or make it my self, but Id like to make the glass holder, as it is way cool to have the round glass disk. Its really the first HUD.And the mill sights are very noticeable, not like the Army single dot in the circle deal.

BTW it would not really be that hard to make a semi decent reflector gunsite. I may do it for CFS2 and use it in the sim, one day. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

If it's the one from the Wildcat, I have a pic from the one I sat in earlier this month, I just to have it developed and scanned.

Thanks cowboy, did it have a reflector glass? It should have been a round glass pointed toward you. That would be cool if you could blow it up big, if it does.

Yep, that's the one, with a green (dimmer?) glass behind it.

Thats probably the sunglass.Forgot about that! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/cry.gif

On my (TBD?) mailbox sight, that is apparent. There is a sunscreen glass that moves downward, and it looks like its for the sun.

The Torpedo gunsite was moveable.Im not sure how they worked, but you had to calculate the distance, and aim the sight or something. Are the torpedo planes going to be flyable? This would be cool to put in the sim, if its possible.

(strong emphasis on bombing of all sorts) + (Pacific Ocean)= (flyable torpedo bombers)

I'm starting to love this game more and more every day, and it isn't even out yet!
