Some fun German Aircraft bits that walked in!

Article about: A good customer of mine brought these in so I thought I would share! They all need some cleaning but I should be able to get the gunsights all operational.

    Actaullly...

    The C/12D was also used in the VERY late Me109G, and also the K.

    The Manifold gauge is not Ta152, but rather Fw190D9

    The Revi C12/D was used in all kinds of planes including even the Ju87- it was the 'standard' sight for pretty much anything with fixed, forward-firing armament for the first half of the war- until the 16 series came out. The Revi 16A was a short-term production predecessor of the widely used 16B (later Bf109s, FW190s, Me262 and more), and is listed as having been used by the Me163B, Do335 and one or two others, plus some types of defensive armament- apparently a couple of the 'remote control' guns could use it.

    The stick grip is nice- a KG12A, the type used by the earlier model 109s, 190s, etc.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    unfortunately, there are some easteuropeans who try to make their little fortune with fake WWII instruments.

    here's link to a German pro collector of WW2 instruments:

    Yeah, that amazed the heck out of me when I first saw it- fake aircraft instruments... I'd have never thought it would happen given surely how costly making reproductions would be without the original tools- and surely there would be enough of those for each item that nobody just had them still around from the war...

    But I guess not- somebody will fake anything it seems...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
