You are bidding on a SUPERB used example of a WW2 German Lufwtaffe 0.5 – 2.5 ata Ladedruckmesser (Manifold Pressure Gauge), Fl. 20554, used ONLY in the Fw190 D-9!
This gauge was produced around 1944 and measured the boost (manifold) pressure of the Jumo 213A-1 engine. This engine had a maximum output of 2,100 hp at speed of around 685 km/hr. The Fw190D-9 was easily the fastest single prop fighter germany had produced and as a result, was used for quite extensively in the close support role, escorting the Me262…it was the only fighter that could match the Me262 speed. This instrument was located on the main instrument panel of the aircraft and was ONLY used in the Fw-190D-9 and Ta-152.
Made of brown bakelite, this instrument is in AMAZING used condition. 100% of the original finish remains, however there are some slight marks and wear due to the age. The dial clearly indicating Fl. 20554, however the label has worn off over time at the reverse. I have indicated it’s location in the last photos. A FANTASTIC addition to any collection, display, or restoration project!
Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

——————- 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.
