This WWII Japanese aircraft amp gauge is dated 'Showa 18' - (1943) & month '6' (June) and was installed across a range of Japanese aircraft including the Kawasaki Ki-45 where it was installed on the starboard electrical panel between the pilot and the rear gunner.
While the majority of Japanese instruments, much like their enemy counterparts, had black faced instrument gauges it was not uncommon for many to have the raw metal finish behind the dial. This was particularly true towards the end of the conflict, when aircraft parts and instrumentation became increasingly harder to source.
This Kawasaki K1-45 Instrument comes complete with detailed Scale Model, Mango Wood Stand & Plaque plus Printed Fact Sheet featuring photo of instrument in aircraft cockpit.
