WW2 Japanese Imperial Army Type 98 Airspeed Indicator – Ki-43 Ki-100 Ki-61 LATE


Out of stock


You are bidding on a SUPERB and VERY RARE example of a WW2 Imperial Japanese Army Type 98 Airspeed Indicator, as used in the Ki-43 “Oscar”, Ki-61 “Tony”, Ki-84 “Frank”, Ki-83, Ki-100, Ki-102 “Randy”, Ki-48 “Lily”, Ki-67 “Peggy”, and other front line fighters and bombers! 


This instrument measured the current airspeed by the use of air pressure.  It was located on the main instrument panel. 


Made of aluminum, this instrument is in NICE used condition!!!  Removed from a downed Japanese aircraft by a US serviceman during the war, it still retains 90% of it’s original finish!  Features an mid-war Type 3 aluminum data plate, clearly stating the model, manufacture, production number.  Dial still glows when UV light is applied, and still appears to be functional!  Ihave indicated it’s location in the last photos (Ki115, Ki-43, and Ki-67). 

Like most Japanese instruments, this gauge is VERY RARE and would be a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display!


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.
