WW II German Aircraft Starterschalter Klappe – STARTER COVER PLATE – Me109 Me262


Out of stock


You are bidding on a VERY RARE WW2 German Luftwaffe Starterschalter Klappe (Starter Switch Cover), as used on various starter handles such as the Fl. 21211, Fl. 21212, Fl. 21213, etc.

This cover was produced between 1938 and 1945.  It was the main cover for the starter handle which engaged the engine for start-up, and was located on the left side of almost all fighters and bombers, such as the Me109, Fw190, Me262, Ju88, Ju87, Me110, He219 and others!

Made of aluminum, this cover plate is in FANTASTIC used condition.  Much of the original RLM66 cockpit paint remains, however there is some dirt and marks due to the age.  The spring does work, but it appears to have a small break, so it is not as tight as it should be.  I have indicated it’ s location in the last photos.  Would make an EXCELLENT addition to any collection, panel re-build, 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.
