$599.99

Description

You are bidding on a FANTASTIC used example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Inclinometer, as used in many of the Japanese Fighters and bombers, such as the Ki-115 Kamikaze fighter, Ki-2 “Louise”, Ki-9 “Spruce”, Ki-55 “Ida”, Ku-7 “Buzzard” Glider, and Ki-105 “Phoenix”!

 

This instrument measured the vertical incline and decent using the current angle of attack.  It was located on the main instrument panel of only a handful of Japanese aircraft.

 

  Made of brass and aluminum, this piece is of mid-war manufacture.  It was taken from a downed Japanese aircraft by a US Serviceman during the war.  It still retains 90% of it’s original finish, and a Type 3 aluminum data plate.  There is some paint fading and chipping due to the age, but nothing that take away from the overall appearance.  100% functional, all the fluid remains, and dial still glows brightly when UV light is applied.  I have indicated it’s location in the Ki-115 Kamikaze fighter.   Would make a PERFECT 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. 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.
