    Hello,

    I am a collector of German aircraft parts mostly specialised on Cockpitparts of the FW-190/ME-109 and the Me-262 Schwalbe. Last week i bought a German rudderpedal (the pedal in the cockpit under the instrumentpanel) as seen here http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/ot...luftwaffe-rudder-pedal-info-needed-15370.html

    The seller said it was from a wreck in Holland found somewhere in the sea. He didnt know from what type of aircraft it came.

    My question is, do you guys now anything about the Werknr on the pedal. I thought it was very special because it is only a 16,while other part i own alway have a number with more digits. The typeschield on the pedal said this:

    Gerat-nr: 8-3715A-3 (this is the number from the partlist)
    Werk-Nr: 16
    Hersteller: hlm (factorycode)

    Can you guys help me uncovering from what plane the mystery 16 came from ?

    Sorry for my bad Englisch

    Greetings Chris

    Rudder pedals were often standard parts used on multiple aircraft types. It would help if you could post a picture.

    You don't have the aircraft's werknummer which would make identification difficult. If you know the site from which the parts were taken it might be possible to tie the crash site to a loss. The problem when artefacts are removed from their original context, undocumented, is that this may be impossible. It's something all archeologists, not just those involved with aviation, bemoan.

    The Hersteller HLM was "Elektron" who I know built wheels and brakes and other landing gear parts. They may well have manufactured your rudder pedal too.

    I might be able to find out more from various parts lists soon as I will be home for a few days in a couple of weeks time with access to my "library".

    Cheers

    That's a very standard pedal. Could be a 109 , 110, 190, 210, 410, etc.....
