You are bidding on an AMAZING and VERY RARE relic example of a 100% ORIGINAL WW2 German Luftwaffe Fw189 Wartungsklappe (Access Hatch)!  This was located on the bottom of the wings.

  

The Focke-Wulf Fw 189 “Uhu” is a German twin-engine, twin-boom, three-seat tactical reconnaissance and army cooperation aircraft. It first entered service in 1940 and was produced until mid-1944.  It was used extensively on the Eastern Front.  Despite its low speed and fragile looks, the Fw189’s maneuverability made it a difficult target for attacking Soviet fighters. When attacked, the Fw189 was often able to out-turn attacking fighters by simply flying in a tight circle into which enemy fighters could not follow.  

 

Made of aluminum and steel, this SUPERB Fw189 Hatch was manufactured around 1938 – 1942.  It features traces of the original camouflage paint, consisting of RLM65 and RLM02!  Some slight damage, bends, dirt, and corrosion, but that is expected due to the age.  Also features a VERY prominent Focke-Wulf company logo on the locking latch!  I have indicated the EXACT locations where these types hatches were installed in the last photos.  With only 864 ever built, this is an EXTRAORDINARILY rare piece, and would make a SUPERB addition to 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.

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.
