Used in most mid to late war fighters. Made of brass and aluminum by the Tokyo Aviation Indicator Company, this instrument is in EXCELLENT used condition! It was taken from a downed Japanese aircraft during the war, and it still retains 90% of it's original finish!
Some slight marks, but nothing that takes away from the overall appearance. Most of the original fluid remains, which indicates that it is still sealed, with NO leaks! L light bulb socket, but otherwise complete!
100% functional (still points magnetic North), the data plate is a mid-war Type 4 aluminum plate. I have shown its location in the last photos. 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. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution.
