WW II German Aircraft Ausgleichgewicht – ELEVATOR COUNTER WEIGHT #3 – Me109 G/K


1 in stock


You are bidding on a SUPERB relic example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe Höhenruder Ausgleichgewicht (Elevator Balance Weight), 109.335-009 H 006 as recovered from the wreck of an Me109 G or K-4.  Sadly, I do not have any history on the loss.

This elevator counterweight was located at each tip of the elevator to evenly balance the forward weight to match the rear.  There were a few variations of this elevator balance weight ranging from the Me109E through Me109K, however this specific piece came from a late Me109 with a wood elevator (as opposed to the standard aluminum).


Made of steel, this elevator balance weight is an AMAZING example!  Though it has some corrosion and pitting, it still retains 98% of it’s original shape and structure!  Could be cleaned up quite well for display. Retains some traces of it’s late-war camouflage paint, consisting of RLM75 and RLM76.  Made for the wood type elevators, the last photo indicates the location on the Me109 .  Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or restoration project.

Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————– 

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. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase.


——————- ABOUT ME —————– 

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. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
