This instrument measured the current altitude by the use of air pressure. It was located on the main instrument panel of the aircraft. Made of aluminum, this piece is of late war manufacture, and was removed from a downed Japanese Fighter by a US Serviceman during the war. It still retains 95% of it's original finish, and the adjustment knob functions 100% (though a bit stiff). It features a mid-war Type 4 Aluminum data plate, clearly indicating the model, manufacture, and production number.The dial still glows when UV light is applied! I have indicated it's location in the last photos. Like most Japanese instruments, this guage 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.
