$349.99

Description

You are bidding on a VERY NICE unused example of a WW2 RCAF / RAF P11 Magnetic Compass, as used in the cockpit of the Supermarine Spitfire, Hawker Hurricane, Avro Lancaster, and others! 

 

This instrument indicated the current direction of the aircraft and pointed to magnetic north.  It was located in front of the pilot.

 

 Made of brass and aluminum, this instrument is in EXCELLENT unused condition!  It still retains much of its original finish (some very light scratches)…but sadly, there is no fluid internally.  It appears the rubber seal has dried over time, and as such, the fluid leaked out or evaporated.  This could be rectified by the winning bidder.  Data label is complete, and clearly indicates the model, type, and manufacture.  Some wear on the screws, with various chips, marks, and wear, due to the age.  Comes complete in the original transport box.  I have indicated its location in the last images.  An EXCELLENT 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.
