For those that didn't know, not only do I do Models for RAF Waddington and a Model Railway, but also I have an interest in flight sim and was responsible for the UKMIL Nimrods (MR1 R1 MR2 AEW3)

The Nimrod was my first Flight Sim Creation and I have decided to give it a little revamp with new skills I have developed.
First to get the touch up is the aircraft I see daily the Mighty R1. A major short fall, I'm sure current uses have found, is the lack of a VC. This has been adressed
Here are a few WIP shots, Other shots are only available for Club Members over at

The 1st image is taken at UKMILs virtual Version of RAF Waddington, the basic Nimrod is a AI aircraft from the Waddo Package
The 2nd is a Work in Progress shot of the all new VC

Nice work Mattie. I've been wanting to try out something like this since I found a South African site that did the same thing for the Shackleton.

Have to say having made a huge mistake years ago and bought a flight sim for a nimrod and shackleton, only to find out that I needed microsoft flight sim to make it go I was erm not happy :(

But last weekend and a new joint pressie a new souper dooper pc and this weekend a vistit to PC world had a wonderful joystick that seemed excellent value then some games then the vulcan cd

Erm im now addicted even though Microsoft flight sim nearly had me chucking a new pc!

Oh by the way were can we get your nimrod from? top work that man!

between building the Airfix kit and doing the flight sim stuff I guess we could officially dub you the Britmodeller "Nimrod GURU" :worthy:
