    Sorry folks, it's not from an FW190- the front windshield/armour-glass panel from an FW190 is rectangular; it only looks like a trapezium/trapezoid in a photo from inside because it's so significantly sloped away from the viewer.

    It's possible that the narrow end of your piece Ze-Pole, being only 15cm, would be the top since most canopies are wider at the bottom than the top. Birds like the Hs129B-2 had a trapezoidal front panel windshield like this, however its wasn't this narrow at the top so it's not from one of those.

    Great pic, Matt.
    Very illustrative of both your point....and how cramped the cockpit was.

    Yeah, I have the steel frame from the thick Panzerglas plate behind the windscreen of an Me262 and I'm continually surprised at how small it really is- and it's bigger than that of the '109 or '190.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Yup, here it is- I got a number of pieces acutally including some Panzerglas fragments, a few instrument faces, and a big piece of skin from atop one of the Jumo engines (already posted in another thread.

    You can see that even on this plane, the windscreen tapers toward the top- and it's not terribly large, measuring 31.5cm wide at the bottom, 24cm wide at the top and has an overall height of 41cm in the middle.

    Thanks for pic.
    Looks great.
    Nice mount too.
    Cant be many 'Schwalbe' items in private hands.
    Now you just need the rest of the 'DüsenFlieger!'
    This one started with a cockpit, but then they deceided to make a complete nightfighter....
