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.

Lockheed Hudson

1/72nd Scale


  • Airfix
    • Kit 05034: Lockheed Hudson I
      • Actually the engines and cowling are those of the Hudson Mk.III;
      • The elevators are incorrect and should be one part, see e.g this photo at and this photo at;
      • The turret is not correct, in the lower half of it there are missing some clear parts and also it needs some detailing .
      • The age of the kit is quite obvious because of the riveting of the kit, further the clear parts are rather thick. You might rub and polish them before assembly or replace the with some after market stuff.
      • Group project Airfix Hudson
  • Italeri
    • Kit 1253: Hudson IV/V, basically the same kit as the MPM kit with different engines
