Messerschmitt ME-110 Engine Cowling Relic
The superb example featuring the original squadron crest of JG5 Group who fought against the Russians over Murmansk, flying out of bases in Norway and Finland. The 7th Staffel of JG5 was a destroyer group equipped with ME110 C's. The crest features a rapant lion which was the coat of arms of the Graf Von Sponeck family. We have identified this part as a lower engine chin cowl mounted in front of the exhaust and behind the propeller spinner. This relic features a ventilation outlet and inside evidence of where a data plate was once fitted. We have no specific information on the actual aircraft this was recovered from, suffice to say it was found in Murmansk. An incredibly rare opportunity to own an identifiable aircraft relic with guaranteed original artwork. Measures: c.27" (69cm) on base.
