Hi all,

I am from the and picked up scale modeling again a few years ago after a break of some 40 odd years.
Currently I am working on a series of planes that have flown or still fly in the Royal Netherlands Air Force () or, in , the “Koninklijke Luchtmacht ()”.
Here's my first built I want to show you, let me know what you think.
More to follow soon.
Thanks for watching.

    Welcome to iModeler.
    You definitely did not forgot how to perform some excellent modelling.
    The details and weathering are superb.
    Living next to Volkel for my entire life, this aircraft from 311 squadron does bring back a lot of memories.
    This specific aircraft is being restored and it would be great if it would return to the sky one day.
    Love to see more of your work from the Dutch airforce.
