Navy Model 2 Turn & Bank Indicator, as used in many of the Japanese Front Line Fighters and bombers such as the A6M5 Type 53/63 "Zero", A7M1 "Sam", J7W1 "Sinden", J2M1 Model 21 "Raiden", and others! This instrument measured the current Turn and of the aircraft by the use of air pressure. It was located on the main instrument panel of the Mitsubishi 53/63 A6M5 Zero, Kyushu J7W1, Mitsubishi A7M1, Aichi M6A1, Aichi B7A1, Ki-115(NAVY TYPE), Kugisho P1Y1, Aichi B7A1, Aichi E16A1, Nakajima C6N1, Mitsubishi A7M1 Model 33, Kugisho D4Y1, and Mitsubishi J2M1.
Made of aluminum and steel, this indicator is of early war manufacture. It still retains 90% of it's original finish, and features a early-war Type 3 Aluminum Data plate, clearly indicating the model, manufacture, and production number. It also features TWO anchor markings, and the dial still glows when UV light is applied! The bonus it is it still retains the original air connector on the reverse!Like most Japanese instruments, this gauge is VERY rare and would be a SUPERB 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.
