Description

You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Navy Model 2 Oil Pressure Gauge, as ONLY used in the Mitsubishi G3M “Nell”, Nakajima L2G “Tabby”, and Nakajima “Kikka” Turbo Jet Fighter! 

 

 This instrument indicated the current oil pressure of the aircraft and relayed the information to the pilot.  It was located on the main instrument panel, and was used in most  mid to late-war fighters, bombers, and transports. 

 

 

  Made of brass and aluminum, this instrument is in EXCELLENT used condition!  It was taken from a downed Japanese aircraft during the war, and it still retains 95% of it’s original finish!  Some slight marks and slight corrosion in some areas, but nothing that takes away from the overall appearance.  A crack to one of the mounting ears, but it should still mount correctly.  Dated 1942, the data plate is a mid-war Type 4 aluminum version.  I have shown its location in the Kikka Jet Fighter in the last photos. 

Like most Japanese instruments, this gauge is VERY rare and would be a FANTASTIC addition to any Japanese Instrument Collection!

——————- 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.
