First of all, welcome to this forum. We all love photos so post as many as you would like. Hopefully you will find you may know some of the other collectors and dealers that are here.
That KLM piece is a classic beauty, and to have all the accessories, crate and stand, along with the near mint model is very unusual.
I know little about these models. Would it have come from Verkuyl/Raise up or the Douglas Model factory, or another source?
Back a few years Gary Field from out your way {Oregon?} was making a great series of cast aluminum model: two flying boats and a DC-7 as I recall. Is he still around?
