I had to buy a whole shopping cart full of BORING military aircraft parts to get this, ($35, New Life Thrift) but it was worth it!

1. Case - Army Air Force 1951 Analyzer ZM-3U

2. Open - Army Air Force 1951 Analyzer ZM-3U

But under THAT, the most beautiful control panel I've seen in a thrift store in a while!

3. Panel - Army Air Force 1951 Analyzer ZM-3U

4. Meter and Lamp - Army Air Force 1951 Analyzer ZM-3U

Happy Easter!
