    G'day all,
    I picked up this gauge today, it is some sort of pressure gauge from a German aircraft, does anyone have any idea what it may be? Maybe hydraulic fluid etc... it has two indicator needles in the gauge and is luminescent. Sorry about the quality of the pics. Cheers, Dave

    Hello mate,

    It's a Doppeldruckmesser or double pressure gauge part no.FL.205112-6. I don't know what type of aircraft it was fitted to, but FL.250112-1's were fitted exclusively in Fi-156 Fieseler Storch's and Arado AR-96's. Part no. FL.205112-2 were fitted to all models of the Bf-109 and certain models of the Fw-190. The last number after the dash corresponds with the different amounts of pressure that the instrument was calibrated to depending on which type and model of aircraft it was fitted to.

    Regards, Ned.

    Ned, I have just googled the part number and discovered this gauge is from a HE 219 night fighter. Thanks mate, I wouldn't have thought to do that if you hadn't mentioned the part number.
    Cheers mate, Dave.
