Here is an authentic WWII-era Throttle Quadrant from the Japanese Army Air Force Fighter Nakajima Ki-43 Hayabusa, Allied code named "Oscar". The Ki-43 was often called the "Army's Zero" due to its many similarities to the Japanese Navy's A6M Zero. This came to us from the estate of a P-51 Mustang Pilot in the South Pacific during WWII.
An on-line friend from Japan generously translated the labels for us, see photos with red call-outs.
