Made of brass and aluminum by the Tokyo Aero Indicator Co. This piece is in EXCELLENT condition! It was taken from a downed Japanese aircraft by a US Serviceman during the war, and still retains 95% of it's original finish!There is an air bubble at the top, but it still features 75% of it's original fluid! The fluid has darkened over time, but this could easily be replaced, if one wished. 100% functional, it features an early-war Type 3 aluminum data plate, clearly stating the model, manufacture, and production number.
Also features a date of February 1942. There is some paint fading and chipping due to the age, but nothing that take away from the overall appearance.
Also has the original mount! There is only ONE complete Ki-27 left in the world and ONE Ki-9!!! As such, like most Japanese instruments, this gauge is VERY rare and would be a FANTASTIC addition to any Japanese Instrument Collection! Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only.
