Koolhoven F.K 51

My Latest edition to my Dutch, a artillery spotter for my heavy battery

The Koolhoven FK 51 and the enclosed FK52 was a Dutch designed two seater reconnaissance plane used in Holland, by May 1940 only sixteen obsolete biplanes were flying when the invasion commenced, only four survived the german air strikes on the air fields in the first few days, one at Hilversum and one at Ruigenhoek, one at Ypenburg and one at Gilze Rijen.

Fokker G1

After searching for about 6 months I have found a model of the Fokker G1, unfortunately it is a Vacform kit. I have not built one for about 6 years and they can be a challenge to get looking right, but I am confident I can do it!

The Fokker was nominated one of the top ten fighters of ww2, and possibly was in 1940. My Dutch look forward to the skies being protected with this beauty.








Desert buildings

We have returned from a very pleasant and relaxing  5 week holiday in Bavaria, Baden-Württemberg and Switzerland. When I got home I had a number of Christmas gifts waiting and books, amounts to these gifts was some 15mm/20mm hovels desert dwellings which are very nice but a little small to go with my existing middle eastern buildings. I still painted them as it was a easy thing to do when I sat down at my desk.



Cheers
