The sight? on mine was just a piece of brass wire and very thin tubing.

Hi brian
 the tube directly above the barrel I BELIEVE is part of the recoil mechanism. I will try to find out for sure.

Glen,

While you are at it can you find out, get a photo, how they watched the fall of shot on video.

Not a good reference, but the TV series when showing the main gun in action, showed it being trained remotely by video and the fall of shot showing up on the video monitor.

Thank you.

I think it was faked for TV.   ;D   Most of the bridge and interior action was done in the studio according to the blurbs.
I presume the video camera is on the side of the gun mounting.

Hi All
 yeh there is a camera on the side of the gun, there is also the EOD (Electronic Observation Device) on the bridge roof that they use to aim at targets.  The EOD also has infared for searching at night, impressive for picking up MOB. EOD is the dark grey unit right infront of the searchlight and radar.   

 I have seen footage of a gun shoot and you can see the fall of shot. The control station in the bridge has two monitors, one for  the gun camera and one for EOD. EOD locks onto the target and then you can slave the gun to EOD.

Glen,

Interesting stuff, Thanks for that.

Modern version of fire control.
In the fifities Fire Control Radar (Anti-Aircaft) Locked onto and tracked the target and then the guns were 'tracked' onto taget by following the Radar pointers mounted on the guns.

I can sympathise with having to redo parts one thought were finished.   I made the first set of carpenters boxes at the wrong scale!  >>:-(
Does anyone know a cure for cramped fingers from holding a soldering iron for too long?
My index finger completely locked up after making 8 bollards.  <:( still 4 more to go.  :-) {-)

Gee Thanks Dicky  :D  I work on it when I get a chance in between work, fishing, camping, prospecting for gold and woodworking.   %%
The weather is the main factor this time of year on what hobby gets the most attention.    %%
 
 Cheers Glen   :-)

Hi Dickie
Cornwall Model Boats have:-
Rung Ladder Brass 250x6mm
Ladder - Brass - Stamped - Width 6mm, Length 250mm
That might work.
Probably available at other model shops

Glenelg is certainly looking the part and much further along than Ararat.
At the moment it is 45% preparation, 45% perspiration and 10% application and waiting for the paint to dry.  {:-{
Hopefully the stanchions should arrive this week, then the "fun" begins.  {-)
