Reflector Gunsight MkII

£15.95

If the cockpit of your R/C model Allied WWII fighter looks a bit empty, perhaps this is what’s missing? It’s the reflector gunsight that’s mounted in clear view at the top of the instrument panel. Your fighter is not really complete without one!

Full Description

Our 3D printed kit of the Barr & Stroud Reflector Sight MkII contains parts to build two complete gunsights; an early version with oval reflector glass and a later version with square glass. As well as parts made on our 3D printers the kit includes laser cut clear plastic parts to represent the lenses in the gunsight body, plus the reflector glass itself. The gunsights are approximately 1:5 scale, making them suitable for use on models built from a number of our plans.

The version with oval shaped reflector glass was in use from 1938 to end of 1940. It was installed in the last RAF biplane fighters, the Bulldog and Gladiator, and in Spitfires and Hurricanes throughout the Battle of Britain. Suitable plans include: MW3455 Bristol Bulldog, MW3344 Gloster Gladiator, MW3333 Hawker Hurricane Mk 1, MW3566 Hawker Hurricane Mk 1, MW3342 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.IA.

The later version, with square reflector glass, was in use from the start of 1941 until the end of WWII. These were installed in most British fighter aircraft operated by the RAF, including Spitfires, Hurricanes, Typhoons and Tempests, as well as some US aircraft in both RAF and USAAF service, including the P-40, P-47 and P-51. Slightly modified versions were produced for rocket firing and night fighter use. Suitable plans include: MW3337 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.VIII & IX, MW3342 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.XIV & XIX, MW3563 Supermarine Spitfire Mk.16E, MW3565 Hawker Tempest Mk.V, MW3564 Hawker Typhoon Mk.1B, MW3332 Republic P-47D Thunderbolt (Bubble Canopy), MW3335 Republic P-47D Thunderbolt (Razorback), MW3329 Curtiss P-40E Kittyhawk, MW3325 North American P-51D Mustang.
