Made of aluminum, brass, and steel this instrument is in SUPERB used condition!!! Removed from a downed Japanese aircraft by a US serviceman during the war, it still retains 95% of it's original finish!Features an early Type 2 aluminum data plate, clearly stating the model, manufacture, production number. Dial still glows when UV light is applied, and still appears to be functional! The AMAZING feature is that is retains the original serial number of the aircraft it was fitted to! Also retains the original connection lines.
The only downfall is that the adjsutment knob is stuck, and needs to be lubricated in order to function correctly (easy fix). Most likely both instruments originated from a Ki-67, as that was the only aircraft that featured this combination. I have indicated it's location in the last photos.Like most Japanese instruments, this gauge is VERY RARE and would be a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display! PLEASE DO NOT PAY UNTIL YOU ARE INVOICED! 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.
