Probably the most famous of all RAF airfields, former 1943 home to 617 Squadron, The Dambusters and now home to the RAF Aerobatic Team, The Red Arrows. Scampton is recreated by Team SDB using photoreal textures throughout taken on a visit to the base. All the buildings and scenery objects are unique and were created for Scampton and placed using information supplied by the RAFAT Adjutant.

The scenery reflects Scampton as it was at the time of our visit in Aug 2008. That of an icon of the Royal Air Force facing an uncertain future as an operational airfield and in a state of semi Care & Maintenance with the possibility of the Red Arrows moving to another base. As the tower is unmanned at night ( the Reds don't perform in the dark!) the airfield is closed to night flying and the airfield taxiway lighting and floodlights although in working order are not used. The runway lighting only being switched on once a year to allow the team to keep their night flying current. Streetlighting is used but most of the buildings being empty are unlit. Based on information supplied.

On the east side of the base are 4 C type hangars with the technical site behind. All the main buildings on the tech site are modelled including the Airmen's Mess where Operation Chastise ( the Rhur Dams raid) was planned. On the airside of No.2 Hangar can be found the well tended grave of Wing Commander Guy Gibson's black Labrador dog. further west between the hangars and the runway are the tower, fire station and the old Electrical Section. To the south are the old Operations Section and animated radar antenna.

The scenery includes the MAIW BAe Hawk by kind permission of Nick Black, using textures by Frank Safranek now updated to 2015 livery.

The AI Hawker Hunter (included) at Hawker Hunter Aviation across the field is by Deadpixel.

Red Arrows Kias and various bowsers and tugs are dotted around the base.
