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.

  • Heller
    • Kit 80286 / 80225 / 80289 : Several release of the same kit, such as French Navy and German Police.
      • The parts fit quite well, the floor is a bit to small.
        The cockpit looks rather well, but needs some detailing. Three chairs and small seat are available.The SAR Alouettes of the RNlAF flew always with the left seat backwards.
        Initially the seats were in an army green colour , later replaced with a blue grey colour . Seat belts were dark blue.
        The Dutch Alouettes were equipped with the large exhaust used for the SA316.
        The engine needs some extra detailing, check photo's.
        The transparent parts doesn''t fit quite well, but by using white glue, ClearFIX (Humbrol) or Kristal-kleer (Micro) these parts may fit well to the fuselage.
        The main rotor was grey, Humbrol 127, with red tips. note the three bars, which have a red, yellow or blue stripe. [these bars differs from each other, these colour code was used to separate them from each other.
        The tail rotor is overall yellow with three stripes. The tail hinge is overall yellow.
