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.

Several colour scheme's applied on the PBY-5 Catalina.

These scheme's are meant for illustration purposes only. The size and type of used fonts of the serials, the size of the roundels etcetera might not be correct, but are as good as possible a simulation of the original.
Further there are many differences between individual aircraft regarding antennas, exhaust and also markings like squadron markings.

Many aircraft had black anti-fouling applied on the undersides of the fuselage.
Just in case you want to built a Dutch Catalina, check you references very well!
