This was already built when I got it (just had a broken missing hook). Replaced it and few years later made it into a returns.

I just spruced it up with a new coat of paint and am looking to make a sight for it, this one:

, any one have any idea how to go about that? Sadly my 3d printer is not working at the moment so im looking at possibly thick cardstock?

I’d just use two pieces of sheet/strip styrene joined at a right angle, one with the V-notch cut out before glueing. Maybe 1-1.5mm thick (0.04-0.06 inch)? Check your local hobby store and they should have an Evergreen sales display with various sizes.

Realized I had some failed 3d prints I could use, so I drew a template from cardstock and traced and cut it out on a failed PLA print that looks around the right thickness (the resin kit had the bottom part of the seight). Filled, sanded painted and primed.
It's not 100% flush cause the kit is a little rough so I might fill it and repaint that area of the gun. Otherwise, the gun feels just a tad more accurate now :D
