In Memoriam

Klaas Willem Jonker
(Wilko)
† 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.

  • Matchbox
    • Kit PK129: (released a good kit of the Meteor NF11/12/14. Aeroclub released special for this kit several conversion sets, also one to convert the kit to a Gloster meteor Mk.8. The kit isn't produced for years and very rare nowadays.
      Note that the Meteors Mk.8 used by 323 squadron were equipped with the late type canopy, modified ailerons and usually enlarged air intakes. The Matchbox kit allows you to build a Meteor with this modifications.
      Piet Miedema, member of the technical crew of the Meteor demo team of squadron 323, told me the Meteor flew sometimes with the smaller and sometimes with the enlarged air intakes.
      The Meteors of the display usual had the enlarged intakes, but the aircraft of the leader was equipped with small intakes, so it was a bit slower!
  • Merlin Models
    • Kit XX: also released a injection moulded model of the Gloster Meteor Mk. 8.
      I think most of the Merlin models are rather expensive, and of rather poor quality.

The kit is the Frog kit and the decals come from several sets such as IPMS Nederland. This model i have built somewhere in the seventies "straight from the box".
