In Memoriam

Klaas Willem Jonker
† April 30, 2018

On Monday 30 April 2018, Wilko Jonker died after a long illness at the age of 58. He leaves behind a wife and two children. The Dutch military aviation and plastic modeling were his hobby and on this website he shared all the knowledge he has collected over the years. His hobby has been able to distract him from the persistent disease in his body until the last week of his life. The contacts with other hobbyists were a major support for him.

This website will be maintained by different people for as long as possible, so that other enthusiasts can continue to benefit from extensive content.

  • Airfix
    • Kit 02009: AVRO Anson Mk. 1 (late type windscreen)
      • This is the oldest kit of the Anson, originating from 1962. For the Netherlands Air Force version, the engine covers to be adjusted.
         Previously, above the cowlings of the Airspeed Oxford (Frog / Novo) could be used. Unfortunately, this hardly available any more.
        It is said that the engine nacelles are too small.
        On the fuselage just behind the cockpit is a direction finder just like the one on the Dakota was present and also a radome was mounted. The turret was on the Dutch Ansons not present, so this opening should be sealed.
        The canopy is at the top to straight and needs to be more rounded.
        The propeller is tapered and it is going thinner in both directions.
        The legs of the landing gear are too short and should be extended.
        Furthermore, a landing light in the nose needs to be made, two small round windows above the nose and of this model both the interior and exterior is quite dull and need to be detailed.The windows of the kit are showing oblique bars, which are not correct. These bars are actually part of the hull structure, so this should be changed.

        For an Anson of 320 and 321 squadron, the cowlings could remain, for some specific aircraft to the windscreen to be adjusted to reflect the early version of the Anson.
