And if the dial is positioned halfway between Australia and hell does that put you New Zealand? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

I recently obtained a cockpit instrument from a WW2 Luftwaffe aircraft. See if you can identify the aircraft from which it is from and it's use....good luck !!

The prize will be a glass of 'Kudos'....

A clue is that the aircraft is in Forgotten Battles http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/10.gif.

Well some sort of dimmer I would guess, maybe instrument light dimmer? Smart to use the AEP box for size comparization, something we all here know http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

Well, it's from an He 111 at least, maybe others I suppose. I'd think either an instrument light dial or cockpit light dial, from bright to off.

I'm going to guess a Revi gunsight reticle dimmer.

Do I get the case of soap?

Instrument panel dimmer from He-111 located in the far right of the engine indicator panel above the pilot position.

The dimmer switch knob is a bit different in the other German A/C.

Turn one way and you end up in hell and the other you end up in Australia?

That is not an instrument. It is a control. Instruments tell the pilot information about what the plane is doing, controls help him make adjustments to the plane.

There is one on the right hand side of the bf110g cockpit. I don't know what it does. It does not move in the sim.
