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 90% of it's original finish! Most of the original fluid still remains t. Air bubble at the top, but it is not too noticeable.
100% functional, it features an aluminum data plate, which states the model, manufacture, and production number. There is some paint fading and chipping due to the age, but nothing that take away from the overall appearance.Like most Japanese instruments, this item 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.
