Nimrod Rise and Fall - any good?

Recommended Posts

Would you describe the book as reference or a good read. I’m thinking about picking up an Airfix kit and doing an R1.

I have deep fondness for Nimrods and was lucky enough to grow up around them, but personally I found this book to be a huge disappointment as either a good read or reference source.

It might have been the copy I had borrowed, but many of the images seemed to be low-rez internet grabs.

Books are a bit of  personal taste thing though, so maybe borrow a copy if you can find it.

 

If you are looking for resource, I would trawl the internet for images, and there is the preserved R.1 at Cosford for interior reference.

This book isn’t too bad. Lots of quality photos and artwork.

Hi Steve,

I found the book quite an enjoyable read, plenty of  photos, but like most books of this type it's writen from the aircrew prospective!
