    I recently got this large piece in the mail from Stalingrad. Luftwaffe aircraft skin fragments are my weakness LoL. Judging by the lettering on the piece it is defiantly German, but as with most aircraft relics this requires more research. So here are my questions. #1 What was the purpose of this section? #2 What plane is this off of? Ive roughly translated the visible wording to 'injected' My guess is that its referring to the port on the top section as some type of injection port. I know these aircraft relics can be hard to ID, but im hoping some members might know something about it. I greatly appreciate any help you can provide.

    Best regards- Jarret

    The teardrop shape is the outline of a blister that (could) have surrounded the base of the antenna mast - therefore at the top of the fuselage behind the canopy or on the side of the nose in a night fighter ........or even the base of a navigation light!?

    Just a wild stab to get things moving....

    The lettering looks a bit postwar. The structure does look wartime.

    Once again you provide VERY helpful information Danmark. Thank you so much for these theories. This piece does resemble the sections in the photos you posted. Unfortunately this relic was slightly damaged during the shipping process. The right side wasn't folded in that much. Just one of the factors of international shipping I suppose. Thanks again for the information, and photos. I believe you are steering the research of this piece into the right direction.

    Best regards- Jarret

    Thank you!! I cant wait to see what results you may find. May I ask what books you are looking at? I'm currently trying to buy more Luftwaffe aircraft reverence books so I can enhance my knowledge of the subject.

    The wording being postwar honesty never crossed my mind. It just has that look that screamed 'authentic' to me LoL. But as I said before im still learning the ropes when it comes to these aircraft parts, so it could very well be post war.

    The book i am looking at is called warplanes of the Luftwaffe, its a old book my dad gave me. It does sometimes show these very nice skeleton diagrams but only for more common aircraft

    If you want a really good in depth look though at bf109s in case you ever get a relic part from them. I would recommend the haynes manual for it

    This morning I was playing a ww2 video game called war thunder . On the bottom of bf-109 F-4 there are two tear drop shape behind the landing wheels. The bf-109 F-4 was a very common variant in 1941-42. Since that area of the plane would have a lot of mechanical parts . Injection might make sense?

    Nice piece Jarret. It might help the guys if you can give some approximate size estimates of the skin and the teardrop section
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated
