His was used for navigational and calculation purposes to correctly plot ranges and distances on maps. Navy personnel used this device to accurately plot direction and location on Navigational Maps. Made of brass, wood, and steel, this navigational Map Ruler / Plotter is in AMAZING condition! It is 100% complete, and comes with an adjustment screwdriver.
The 4 x 15 optical sight is near PERFECT, with no haziness, spotting or marks! Sadly, the spirit level has a slight crack, so the fluid is missing.
This could be easily repaired by adding a modern replacement, if one wished. It comes complete in the original wood box, that features Kanji writing on the top, as well on the inside lid All adjustments work perfectly! Ike most Japanese items is an EXTREMELY rare item, perfect for any collection or display. Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc., as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. Use is solely based on my authorization only. Powered by SixBit's eCommerce Solution.
