This Nimrod model is a Limited Edition kit.

The Nimrod is the world’s only jet maritime reconnaissance aircraft and submarine hunter. The aircraft is based on the first ever jet airliner the DH Comet. It has been in service with the RAF for over three decades and has flown in a number of conflicts around the world, including the Falklands War, two Gulf Wars and other trouble spots.

Given four sidewinder air-to-air missiles in the first Gulf War, it could be said that Nimrod became the largest fighter in the world and it can now fly up to maximum speeds of 575mph powered by four Rolls Royce Spey engines.
