Hello, I found this site while looking for images of the ME-262 flight gauge panel. My favorite WW2 aircraft are the P-38 and the ME-262. I recently acquired a flight gauge instrument panel from a friend that bought two of them, 20 years ago, from the GI that took them out of two 262's at the end of the war.

He was a recon pilot and was at a base when he removed the panel. I have the wood box he sent one of the panels home in. I have his name, APO address, and his serial number. I am trying to find someone that can authenticate the panel.

I can send pictures if this is something you think you can do.

Thank you for any help you can give me. Happy New Year, Stay safe and healthy. Don
