:-) Chris,
Could not find any interior shots but one of these shows the sight covered, which might be an Idea? I do have some pics of the Norden bomb sight, as used in the B-17. Not sure if it's the same as in the P-38 but I will scan them later and can email them to you :-)

These probably wont help much but I'll have another look later to see if I can find that illusive interior shot. I take it that this is for a model? there might be an aftermarket set?
