Air superiority was paramount in World War Two and the
U.S. Mk VIII reflector gunsight embodied a major advancement
toward achieving that goal for the air forces of the United
States and its allies. Equipping P-47D Thunderbolt,
F4U Corsair and F4F Wildcat fighter aircraft, this
technological achievement gave pilots the edge needed for
victory over contemporary Axis fighter planes.
This multi-media assembly kit contains ten parts cast in premium
quality resin for building two complete Mk VIII gunsight replicas with
film for creating accurate lenses. Also includes complete assembly
instructions. This kit is designed for direct replacement of the
gunsight part contained in Hasegawa P-47D plastic model kits.
Minor modification is required for installation in F4U and F4F models.
The gunsight is the most obvious item found under a models canopy and
now you can dress up you model with this precisely accurate scale
