WW II German Höhenruder Gewichtausgleich – ELEVATOR COUNTER WEIGHT – Ju87 Stuka


1 in stock

Categories: , , ,


You are bidding on a VERY NICE relic example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe Höhenruder Gewichtausgleich (Elevator Balance Weight), 87-325, as recovered from the wreck of a Ju87 D-1 “Stuka” Dive Bomber, W. Nr. 2442 from StG.2!  I will provide further loss information to the winning bidder.

This elevator counterweight was located at each tip of the elevator to evenly balance the forward weight to match the rear.  It was used on all all models of the Ju87 aircraft.

Made of iron, aluminum, and steel, this elevator balance weight is an SOLID example!  Though it has some slight dirts, dents, and damage, it still retains much of the original camouflage paint!  It still retains part of the original data plate (though corroded), indicating the part numbers!  Could be cleaned up quite well for display.  The last photo indicates the exact location…in this case it is from the starboard side elevator.  A VERY RARE item, it 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.

All pictures and descriptions used in my auctions under COPYRIGHT and I forbid the use of these photos and information in any manner such as paper or electronic (internet) publications or otherwise. Use is solely based on my authorization only.
