The Build

This is a very easy system to follow :-

Some of these pages are for reference only, some builds you can only buy in our shop,

However if not then please read these introductions, have a look at some of the pictures and specifications,

Study the schematics, drawings and or video/s, also our terms and conditions are a must,

Then if your happy with the estimated cost and want to go ahead, click on all links to parts that you need below

You may already have some parts of your own or want to modify the idea, its your build so its all up to you. Some parts we stock so those purchase links will direct you to our shop, others from companies not associated with us

Once all your parts are delivered, check they are correct and working!

We give ideas of what tools are needed but you may have your own solution,

Then the fun begins, start building!


The EDNV stands for Elcan Digital Night Vision, it was one of my first builds years ago and is still one of the most advanced units, it was made from a donor Elcan scope and the insides all removed to make room for the digital parts, it was quite a squeeze and some internal grinding and filing was needed, the prototype took around a 100 hrs to build and was the only one of its kind for a while until I made some more for a few Americans…..didn’t really kick off in the UK as it was a tactical scope from the US army, I may one day build a SUSAT one ?
