Dutch Modelling and Aviation

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.

Republic F-84F Thunderstreak

Scale 1/72


  • Airfix
    • Kit 03022: This is an older kit than the Italeri kit and of the same quality. The cockpit needs to be detailed.
  • Italeri
    • Kit 107: A rather old kit, also released by Revell, with decals for a Dutch camouflaged Thunderstreak. The cockpit is rather good but somewhat bare, so you might use some detailing sets. Ad enough weight in the nose. The air intake and exhaust are open, so you can look right through the model, so you need to close it. The landing gear is rather fragile, but realistic.
  • PJ productions
    • 72-1021: a resin model of good quality.
  • Testors
    • Kit 942: This, here in the Netherlands scarcely available, kit can be compared with the Italeri kit.
