Default Corgi aa32801 dh mosquito b iv grim reaper raf109

Hi DAC members,

I'm a new member on this forum, my name is Arjan from Holland and I have a question. I'm am aviation enthousiast but not a collector of Die cast models.

I'm looking for a specific reason a specific model: CORGI AA32801 DH MOSQUITO B IV GRIM REAPER RAF109 SQUADRON

Last week almost found one for sale on e bay,but unfortunately missed it.
It is quite hard to find actually and I would really like to purchase it for a special reason..

I would like to display it in my exposition about R.C.A.F. pilot C.K. Chrysler and R.H. Logan who actually flown the original plane during WW2. They crashed with a familiar 109 sq. mosquito DZ 432 HS-N in the village Bleskensgraaf, Holland. I found remains of their aircraft in a farmers field and have copies of their flight log with an entry mentioning DK 333. I do give guest lessons on local schools and the model would really help me to tell their WW two history.

If interested about their history it can be read on ww.mosquitocrash.com

Maybe someone can advise how to to get, or like to sell this model to me,
Sincerely yours,

Arjan Wemmers

this model used to be very hard to find and expensive. judging by ebay sold prices, it seems it is far more common and cheaper now. i suggest you wait until the next one comes along on ebay and snag it for a price near what others seem to have gone for recently (30-50). getting it via ebay uk is probably better than via the US or NL sites due to the volume of RAF/Corgi on ebay uk.

There was one on the Planecrazy website earlier today - £70 + postage, if memory serves. You'd need to check if they ship to Holland. Maybe worth hanging on for one to appear on ebay.

I don't think it had a particular 'limited release' (several of Corgi's first releases around that time weren't limited); but given even the 'limited' runs were massive around then, 5900 & 5400 for the next two releases, it shouldn't be that rare. I wouldn't pay more than £40 for a mint one.
