    I'm Arjen. Most call me Aaron..
    33 yrs of age. Live in a town called Leeuwarden. It's 1 of the 5 (really don't know for sure) airbases Holland still has.
    I've lived my life near the approach of EHLW. and so was another interest born like most of us I think.

    My interest goes mostly to props. Why?? don't know. Perhaps its like music. They hardly make good music these day's. neither do they build nice planes in my humble opinion.
    My best interest goes to the post WWII years until the seventies..

    The moments I can see old planes fly are rare, so i decided to do some scale modelling to see some. Still learning but really enjoy it.
    On a dutch forum i'm busy for quite some time so I ctrl-c ctrl-v some of my best made models over here.
    Hope you like them:

    My being here is mostly to find a lot of good references and perhaps I can be of any help to you guys.
    If you have any questions at all... don't hesitate...

    Welcome aboard mate, love the Aussie Mustang! :cool:
    As for RAAF P-39's, I can recommend this book - :: RedRoo Models. I have it so if you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Thnx mate. I knew te excistence of this book. I ordered the R.R. decal for the p39.
    Luckily my 'grocery store' has one book left.

    Are there coloured pics/drawings in it?? or is it just information and b/w pics.
    My main issue is the paint scheme. Red Roo is scares in decal placement.

    Thnx for the Mustang. I try to build most of my planes australian.

    Welcome to the forum Aaron. You got some mad modeling skills going on.8) I can't wait to see more of your work. What is the aircraft in the 4th photo with the counter rotating props?

    That would be a Westland Wyvern. Beautifully done.

    Nice to know you Aaron. I have visited Holland loads of times, I used to have a girlfriend from Rijswijk and still visit frequently with work. Great people. Very tall!

    thanks guys!! its really a great welcome.
    it's good to here that someone is welcome in a world where lot's of you already come for a while.
    If you want to see more pics of a specific plane i've built... got lots. The wyvern is perhaps the one i'm most proud of.. and ofcourse the p51. its a really well done thing if i may say.. all done with AlcladII paints.
    I should say.. If you ever want to visit Holland. let me know.. can tell you lots of ins and outs.

    For now im still hoping for some OZ p39 ref's. otherwise i'll just buy the Red Roo Book..

    Hoping this weekend to start a new kit. Just finished a f9 panther for my blue angels collection.
    So next will be perhaps the majestic F8 Bearcat..

    Aaron
