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.

The kit used is the Frog kit, with the decals from the kit. I finished this kit in 2007, having started with it late eighties, but set it aside for several years.

IMG 8698

A model of the Fairey Firefly T.Mk. I.
This models consists of the full resin fuselage of Maintrack, which is based upon the fuselage, plus a Novo kit.
I milled some holes in the fuselage for the air intake and the cockpit section. [I think it is not one of my best models, but I consider it as a practice in working with a resin kit.]
