    Hello everybody!

    I don't know if it's the right place to post this topic...hope so

    I wanted to see and discuss about any WWII aircraft parts some of you maybe own.
    To my part I just buy on the internet (website in 4 letters...) a part comming from an Me109.

    (maybe it's not the place but I'm also interested if anybody of you wanted to sale Me109 parts)

    thanks to all who will post and share :)

    I used to have one too TGT, from a Hawker Tempest! Gave it to a friend who collected ammunition.

    I have a pristine Hispano-Suiza engine cylinder from a Fiat BR.20 bomber shot down during the Battle of Britain. One of my uncle's was a kid then, and used to raid the fallen aircraft with his mates while the guards were absent or distracted!
    It is currently on loan to a museum in New Zealand.

    Hi A4K,
    are you sure that cylinder is Hispano-Suiza? If is so, it can't come from a BR.20 because those bombers were powered only by domestic FIAT A80 RC41 engines. :?:

    Cheers

    I have a fragment of a Bf109F's tail said to have been flown by Hpt Karl-Heinz Krahl of II/JG3 who was shot down (by AA) and killed 14th April 1942 whilst strafing some airfield in Malta.

    I wish it was mine but my Brother in Law has a clock from a 109G2 that his father 'aquired' from the plane when it made an emergency landing by his unit. He is installing it in his Messerschmitt bubble car.

    Wow, that's great mate!

    Ahem...just noticed Marcogrifo's comment re my engine valve ...3 years later ... :oops:

    'Hispano Suiza' (or possibly just 'Suiza' - can't remember now as it's back in NZ) is lightly engraved in the head of the valve. My uncle told me he 'acquired' it as a boy from a downed BR.20 during the Battle of Britain.

    That said, he regularly raided crashed aircraft with his mates (he once retrieved a full belt of ammo from a spitfire wing! :)), so if what you say is true, he may possibly have mixed it up with another type?
