    Hi Rick, yes it does look clean and crisp as you say, I wish they were my paints but they are not. I have had this aircraft for ages, I forgot I had it, I found it on one of my archive disks and not sure who made the model or who did the textures.
    It is a FS2004 model, I just did a quick search and found it I think:

    I did a copy texture of WR972, read here:

    First flown 6.11.56 and A/Cn 18.12.56, but retained for C(A) development trials on radio, radar, photographic and navigation equipment. Delivered to the A&AEE Boscombe Down 28.12.56, returning to Woodford 24.5.57 and prepared for flight trials of air conditioning, Autolycus, the nitrogen system and checks on noise levels against Contract 6/Acft/13766/ CB6(a). Reallocated to Avro Woodford 15.11.57 for Tl of mods to Contract 6/Acft/ 14824/CB6(a) and Stage I of Mod688 to Contract 6/Acft/15150/CB6(a). Allotted to the A&AEE 28.7.58 for official C(A) Release trials of Mods 688 and 595, the Zero Reader/ ILS installation and the AV 146 flamefloat launcher, arriving at Boscombe three days later. Reallocated to Avro 2.2.59 for TI of Phase II radio (Mod 772) against Contract KD/L/034/CB6(a) and delivered to Langar 11.2.59. WR972 was purchased by the MoA 13.3.59 for the RAE, but continued to be used for the performance testing of Mod 772, being delivered to the A&AEE 23.3.6() for sonobuoy and mixed bomb load clearances. To Avro Langar 15.12.60 for investigation into vibration problems with aerials fitted under Mod 772 (Phase II). WR972 returned to.Boscombe Down 31.1.61 for continuation of radar and radio, Orange Harvest ECM and sonobuoy Mk 1C equipment trials. Finally released to the RAE 10.4.61, the aircraft arrived at Farnborough three days later and was equipped for towing and dragtesting parachutes. Remained in use until fatigue life was expended. SoC Cat.5(Scrap) 31.1.73 and used for fire fighting and rescue training at Farnborough.

    So I based her a Farnborough EGLF and got her doing a recon on the South Kent coast.

    Ah sorry Aaron, I do delete the sound but the AI uses another sound file which I have changed, I am not too keen on the default sounds so did my own.
    One that used to send me to sleep was the default single prop sound, that was the first one I changed.

    Great looking Shack.
    Here in South Africa, we had the MR.3.
    We have one in our Air Force Museum here in Cape Town, & an FS2004 model was released some years ago, payware to raise funds for restoration.
