Hello!

The pace slowed down, I must admit, but I'm still working on it.

Here's what I have so far on the early ballistic computer (this could also work for the M48A3):

Pawel, been looking at your original diagram, and I think your azimuth indicator is about 10% to big. Also, your travesing gear assy is to far forward. It should be more to the rear towards the TC's seat. That should open up the space for the ballistic computer. Can you rotate the diagram so we can see what it would look like from the TC's seat?

Mike, Ray - thanks a lot for your kind words! I'm sorry you had to wait so long for my reply.

Ray - that's the good thing about it, I can turn my 3D model anyway I please. Here, I have prepared two more drawings for you:

That azimuth indicator is one of the things I would like to have measured. The outer diameter of the upper cylinder (and the cylinder's height) would be particularily interesting here.

What do you say?

Thanks for looking and have a nice day
