Guys I was sent a email from a guy that I've brought kits from, he does excellent work on these.

He's given me permission to post some photo of his latest work.

So I hope you enjoy these.

From the builder not me.

I am glad to share with you my brand-new article in full scale, built as a model kit. It is the Barr & Stroud RAF Mk II and MK II* fitted to almost all British fighters of WWII.

As usual, this kit is a resin copy of an original one, casted in absolutely non toxic resin.

Parts are casted from original, so they can be assembled as the originals. Wheels rotates and lower wheel can be screwed on the main body. The two lens retainer rings can be screwed as the real so that the use of glue is reduced at its minimum.

MK II: is the one used during the Battle of Britain on Spit, Hurri, Defiant etc... It has a curved glass onto a curved head. Part number is 7a/1124. Seen on Spitfire Mk I, Mk II, V, especially on Malta based a/c. The kit is composed of 28 parts.

MK II*: the asterisk indicates the new, upgraded version, with a new head with brackets, and new, squared glass. Part number is 6b/2361. Seen on late Mk V and all british fighters and fighter-bomber until 1944-45. The kit is composed of 31 parts.

Hi Number 1

These aren't mine, they were done by a guy that I buy from. I've got 3 off his control levels.

Mustang, Spitfire and a German version.

I have the early. It is every bit as spectacular as it would seem to be. (I can thank? Mustang for introducing me to these...) The casting is perfect, and is so good in fact that the lower part of the gunsight actually threads on to the upper!
