Description

You are bidding on a VERY NICE example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe Lkn4 Kurskreisel Kompass (Course Gyrocompass), Fl. 22561, as used on nightfighters and bombers such as the He-111, Ju-88, Me-110, Fw-200, and others!

  

This compass was a small part of the large autopilot system as used on many early German bombers.  This larger system also included the Rudder Machine, Kurssteuring Swith, and Kursmotor.  It would allow the pilot to manually change the directional path.

 

Made of aluminum, brass, and steel, this instrument is in NICE used condition.  There is some very slight marks, due to the age, but appears to be 100% complete!  All the knobs are 100% mechanically functional, however I have not tested it electrically.  The data tag is 100% complete, clearly indicating, Fl. 22561.  I have indicated it’s location in the Ju88, Me210, and He111 cockpits.  A PERFECT item for any collection or display

——————- 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.
