I'm new to flying the SBD but have been having fun dive bombing with this aircraft. I was just wondering if someone could tell me what the markings on the Gunsight are for. Here is a pic:http://img280.imageshack.us/img280/8200/il2sbd3sb.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

Angles used for estimating range.
If you know what angle something takes up in the sight and how wide it is then you can determine how far away it is.
I suppose the angle is measured in mils from the center of the sight.

It looks good. Will it still run fine with 4.02M?
