Yes, your previous post was not clear to me what you were referring to?   SO I am asking what you meant that is all.  No worries!  :)

below is that post:

 

Gary, can I point you in the direction of the Walkaround section of the Forum where I uploaded a lot of pics of Hendon's Bf110G4:

PS  The G4s with the larger radar antennae also had the larger rudders, this to provide stability sacrificed by the heavy nose radar array.

Merely drawing your attention to the 80+ pictures of a G4 available on this forum should you need them, that's all.

Ok, I have them and many others. Pictures are not in short supply of that bird. What I am looking for is more period photos of some of the unique configurations some of the other members have eluded too. Your pictures do show very well, even in the Gallery lighting that most museums now choose to use.


What I need now are details/Pics on the Revi 16N gun sight. Can you or anyone else hope here? What is different forms he 16B


Thx

Ps. I hate these help spell/word guess apps that are now part of typing!

Gary-

 

I think the E kit photo-etch for the back seat is decent, but they could have provided a much more appropriate piece. If molded in resin, then folks could also drop it into their C and D model kits to upgrade the rear gunner/radar/radio compartment. See here for a good picture of it:

 

https://goo.gl/images/1ArR41

 

As for the oblique Revi gunsight, that sucker sure is elusive! I can't find a single picture of one fitted to an airframe. Even wartime photos I am finding of nightfighter 110's don't show it installed in the upper pilot folding canopy section, as that blueprint seems to indicate. Maybe it wasn't carried on a regular basis? I have no idea. All I do know is that there aren't many photos out there, if at all. The bird at Hendon, which appears to have had the oblique guns fitted at one point, doesn't have it either.

Hey Gary, I'm not sure it's the 16N that's needed. The 16N was used in Ju88s

but the info on the following page seems to indicate it's the Revi C12 D was

used on the 110.  http://www.reflexvis...c12d-sb-beitrag

 

Apparently the mirrored reflector that the pilot looked into was from the 16N.

The gunsight for the schrage was rather odd (as you may already know).

The reflector was in front of the pilot but the sight itself was behind his head.

Appears to be mounted slightly to the starbord side.

Hope this helps.

 

 One of Mmaben's previous pictures.... :thumbsup:

 

 The Revi mounted behind the roll bar and the reflector on the canopy.

Hi Dan

Have you included the "bulged" aft engine cowl for the magneto?

 

  

 

 

Yes I have although it does not show too well on the photo. The curves on the cowling appear more smooth than the 1/48 correction from Cutting Edge and the Monogram/Revell kit. I used photos from the Squadron Signal Walkaround.

Nice work there! ... I never knew about the sighting mechanism before this thread started.

I don't what I thought they did ... Just line the A/C up and say "she'll be right, mate"?!?!

 

This is going to be a big 12 months ... this conversion, the Lanc and an A-20 Havoc from HpH ...

Thank god we're coming into summer here ... and overtime!

 

Rog :)
