Both the base feet of the enemy aircraft and range can be adjusted using the built in Authentikit mag hall sensors. The design also includes an adjustable mount that connects to the Instrumental Panel Mounting System which attaches to a desk.

Great addition for Spitfire
Really enjoyed the build on this! I took inspiration from some of the additions that gaznav made, and then added my own painting/weathering and a few more custom parts.
The perspex sheet and the magnifying glass lens were exactly as gaznav described. I modified the 'patent' lettering by warping it in Photoshop to fit better. The reflector glass (perspex) was held onto the mounts by a couple of small custom 3d parts which were screwed on. I also created a 3d rim/insert to hold the magnifying glass, and sprayed the underside of the glass with metalliser paint then black to give it a mirror finish.
I created more 3d parts for the 'head protector', plus 2 brackets for it that were bolted with holes drilled through the upper body of the gunsight. The head protector was covered in material from an old sock stuck on with PVA glue . A few fake rivets rounded off the look. Plenty of artistic license but it's a great addition to the Spitfire build.
Great design that looks fantastic, and has been checked to work in the simulator
This is great!
Love the gunsight. I did mod mine with some 4mm Acrylic sheet from https://www.sheetplastics.co.uk - they can cut to size (100mm x 120mm) and polish the edges and radius the corners. I also used the lens from a 90mm magnifying glass inside the body (£2.65 from eBay). Finally, I created a bumper on the front (originally to protect Aircrew faces in an accident) from a block of rubber and mocked up the sticker on the front. This is Authentikit at it’s finest! A++
sehr geniales Design! :Daumenhoch: So wie jedes Mal ! Vielen Dank, Harry und Phil! Ich werde es sehr bald bauen.
