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.

Sikorsky SH-34J/UH-34J

All available models are basically the UH-version. For the SH-version, the ASW version, one had to add several things.
For example, a sonar system has to be installed, the sonar of a British Sea King can be used, as this was the same type.
The torpedo launcher one has to scratch built one and another, as no alternative is available, though Italeri has produced an Italian version of HSS-1N, which had the torpedo launchers added. The Dutch SH-34J's carried only one launcher on the left.
