Gallery Article by Kees Kuyper on Nov 11 2011


After some computer problems herewith the ZELstart F-16 transport.  

One of my first meetings with aviation were photos one could buy at the grocery's. Especially the photo of a ZELstart Republic Thunderjet made an impression deep enough to make my own Zelstart plane (model 1:72) years later (2011).

The truck is a Majorette toy painted light gray (Humbrol 64) as well as the plane which also got darker gray camouflage patches.  

The (shortened) start rocket comes from an Academy small shuttle model.

The model was designed bij M.A.D. (Multiple Aircraft Designs)
Greetings from M.A.D.
