Corgi Boeing B17g "nine O Nine" For Sale

Corgi Boeing B17g

Boeing B 17 G Flying Fortress "Nine O Nine"
LIMITED EDITION, NO.0365 OF 1580 DISTRIBUTED WORLDWIDE
A HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE MODEL NO LONGER AVAILABLE FROM DISTRIBUTORS
Up for sale is one, Corgi 1/72nd scale Boeing B17G Flying Fortress, "Nine O Nine".
The Boeing B17 Flying Fortress was one of the most widely used United States Army Air Corps Bombers during World War II. It carried a crew of 10, and up to 10 fifty caliber machine guns for defense. It became legendary for it's ability to absorb heavy combat damage and still bring it's crews home.
This model is finished in the color scheme of a Fortress assigned to the 323rd Bombardment Squadron, 91st Bombardment Group, based at Bassingbourn, England, during the spring of 1945. The aircraft was named Nine O Nine by it's radioman, Jack Grosh, after the last three digits of it's serial number.
The aircraft set an Eighth Air Force record by completing 126 missions (out of a total of 140) without a single abort. The aircraft survived the war only to be scrapped in 1946.
A flying example of a B17 belonging to the Collings Foundation is painted in the colors of Nine O Nine.
Corgi's B-17s are highly collectible and feature authentic panel lines, rotating gun turrets, opening bomb bays, and impressive paint schemes.
This example was on display as part of a private collection. The model is like new. The included crew figures have never been out of the box. The original box is in very good condition. It has some minor shelf wear, and some minor crumpling to the left front corners. The collectors card is also included.
The photos above are of the actual model you are offerding on.
This particular version of Corgi's B17 line is no longer available from distributors, and is very scarce. It is a very popular model,and highly collectible. It would be an impressive addition to any die cast aircraft collection.
Thank you for looking!
