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


1 in stock


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

This data plate was produced between 1944 and 1945.  It was the main label for the 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 zinc, this data label is in FANTASTIC unused condition!  all information is 100% legible, and it is in only slightly used condition.  Some marks and scratches due to the age, but nothing that detracts.  I have indicated it’ s location in the last photos.  Would make an EXCELLENT addition to any collection, panel re-build, or restoration project!

Note that you are bidding on the label ONLY.  The complete cover shown in the last photos is for reference only, and is not part of the auction.

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.
